Sonic Youth – Small Flowers Crack Concrete lyrics

(Thurston/Kim)

Small flowers crack concrete
Narcotic squads sweep thru poet dens
Spilling coffee grabbing 15 yr old runaway girls
By frazzled ponytailed hair + tossing them
Into backseats of cop cars
The narcs beat the bearded oracles
Replacing tantric love with
Complete violence

Lights + mirrors dot the city
Inkstained hippies with boxed lunch + marijuana
Mystery plays of shit and nothingness
Blessed by colors from a black hat

Blue lights search thru weeds
Searching for the heart of D. A. Levy
And the mind he left behind

What didjoo expect? Another mystic wreck?
That's whatchoo got crawling inside yr panic net
Whatdidjoo bring me? Not a goddam thing yeh
+ whatdidjoo leave me? Another tombstone dream yeh
O salacious mansion, the boys held for ransom
Didja see where he1s gone? The blasted summers dawn
Fucked up in cleveland fucked up in cleveland
Short flight to nothing heavens up to something heavens up to something
Levys up to something levys up to something

Death poems for the living gods of america
Plastic saxophones bleat, bleed for nothing, nada
Cops crashing thru doors infuriated by silver charms
Of suburban smoke
At war with patches of red dirt glitter
And bluejean fucking + protest
