  • Lyrics:   trickle down utopia see it in her eyes, just sittin’ at the station there’s no bus going to her destination see it in his eyes, sittin’ behind the wheel it’s getting late, he’s gone nowhere he’s looking back, no one's there see it on the hillside in this desperate side of town the broken wooden crosses littering the ground be a christian soldier; don’t tell god i told ya forget about it floats like a trickle down utopia feel it in her movement as she strips away her clothes no vibe, no music, no lights, no pose see it in his eyes as she's lying on her back he can’t pay his bills but he’s paid for her… that is that see it in his stare, sitting in his room pack of camels, last call, final memory, silver spoon see it on the hillside in this desperate side of town the broken wooden crosses littering the ground see them frozen one by one here on 4th and greer lining up for sandwiches, bowl of soup, holiday cheer be a christian soldier; don’t tell god i told ya forget about it floats like a trickle down utopia see her in my eyes, as she leaves the station there's no plan no likely destination feel him in your soul, as he's swallowed by the ground it’s getting late; he’s gone nowhere, looking back, there’s no one there see it on the hillside in this desperate side of town the broken wooden crosses littering the ground be a christian soldier; don’t tell god i told ya forget about it floats like a trickle down utopia be a goddamn soldier; just don’t tell god i told ya forget about it floats like a trickle down utopia
