lyrics

Gonna buy me a river
gonna charge you eight bucks a gallon
Buy me a river
gonna charge you right bucks a gallon
Wrote my name upon a sign
I post it up, that makes it mine
Gonna buy me a river
Start charging eight bucks a gallon

Well if you're a fisherman
best take your boat out to sea
Well if you're a fisherman
best take you're boat out to sea
You pony up for rod and reel, well
First you gotta pay me
Well if you're a fisherman
Best take your boat out to sea

Dam on up the mountain
Hold back the flood
Dam on up the mountain, you gotta
Hold back that flood
Well you got your pretty needs
So I bought myself this gun
Its gonna turn all this water
Into a river of blood

Is this just a dream?
Its more real than the waking world
Prosperity's promise
The blind are going deaf
And I just need a home
I just pray there's something left

The answer to your question
Great wall of silence

Move into the river
Sweep away the sorrow
Caught a glimpse of everyone
Come on folks, come and dip your soul in it
Seeing past perspective
Love is all that's free
And these games we play for sport and purpose
They're draining it all out of me
All out of me

The answer to your question
Great wall

Buy a revolution
Watch it from a tower in the sky
Buy a revolution while your
sons and daughters die
Well you had your home, your lives, your things
And I'll do with them as I please
Gonna buy a revolution
I couldn't buy me any peace
