lyrics

She’s okay with wet cigarettes and roses in her hair
She is the finest thing
She’s alright with Brooklyn, and she’s alright by me
Oh darling, you were meant for me

Her mother was a mystic, she is a magical child
Her love is the sweetest thing
We both agreed the Boomers sucked and we wondered why the 60’s died
Well some things, they just aren’t meant to be

Meet me at the front lines, I hear there is something going on
I ain’t sure what it looks like, but I’m sure that you and me can carry on
And we’ll carry on
And all the king’s army came along

She took her body back in time, and she came back as a subway line
Beneath those New York streets
I came back as the Y.P.G. all bleeding out in the infantry
But what’s that got to do with you and me

Meet me at the front lines, I hear there is something going on
I ain’t sure what it looks like, but I’m sure that you and me can carry on
And we’ll carry on
And all the king’s army came along

Then one by one we occupied where the brokers guard the money lines
And there we made our stand
They mocked what we were fighting for “Poor boy, give up your father’s war”
But my darling she’s too good to me

Now halfway through her cigarette with asphalt in her hair
She is the finest thing
We sank into each others’ eyes under billy clubs and flashing lights
Oh darling, you were meant for me

Meet me at the front lines, I hear there is something going on
I ain’t sure what it looks like, but I’m sure that you and me can carry on
And we’ll carry on
And all the king’s army came along
