The Hold Steady – Positive Jam lyrics
Woke up in the 20s. There were flappers and fruits in white suits. It was right before the crash. We got thrashed throughout the 30s. Queuing up for soup in scabby sores. And they sent us off to war. We came back in the 40s. There were wheelchairs, guns and tickertape. We poured it on the floor and made love to the interstates. We got shiftless in the 50s. Holding hands and going steady. Twisting into dark parts of big midwestern cities. Tripped right through the 60s with some blissful little hippie. Some kennedys got shot while you were screwing san francisco. The 70s got heavy we woke up on bloody carpets. Got tangled up in gaslines. I guess that's where it started. The 80s almost killed me let's not recall them quite so fondly. Some kennedy O. D. While we watched on mtv. In the 90s we were wired and well connected. Put it all down on technology and lost everything we invested.

We got to start it off with a positive jam.

All the sniffling indie kids. Hold steady. All the clustered up clever kids. Hold steady. I got bored when I didn't have a band. So I started a band. We're gonna start it with a positive jam. Hold steady.
