The Revolution (Live)

Amplifiers & old guitars
Country music sung in bars
& When she sings the revolution's near

Beauty holds the microphone
& Watches as we stumble home
& She can see the revolution now

Dirt & fish & trees & houses
Smoke & hands up women's blouses
Not like I expected it would be

Bubbles pop in every size
It's analyzed & criticized
& Beauty knows that it is almost here

Beauty goes to her address
She shuts the door and climbs the stairs
& When she sleeps the revolution grows

Beauty rests on mattress strings
Wearing just her underthings
& When she wakes the revolution's here
& When she wakes the revolution's here
