American twilights...it’s so out of hand American twilights...say gold’ll turn to sand Dirty dusk downtown tonight, ain’t no place to sleep. If I’m my brother’s keeper then I pray his soul to keep Windfall widow lives uptown, liquid cash on hand, put a price on loneliness it might as well be sand. American twilights...it’s so out of hand American twilights...say gold’ll turn to sand The beautiful go blameless Quiet boy in second grade, with his daddy’s gun, Shoots a little girl to death, doesn’t even run. Rips a tear in God’s blue sky; thought it sounded fun, waiting on a word from Tweedle Dee or Tweedle Dum. American twilights...it’s so out of hand American twilights...say gold’ll turn to sand
