Communist Daughter | Fortunate Son | The Lowertown Line


♪ Do you remember the airplane
that circled over head ♪ Like all the vultures
did when we were younger ♪ Our bodies shook when we
were under the family tree ♪ Do you remember
when the news came ♪ And all the looks
that stayed the same ♪ The box of medals
with broken hinges ♪ Dirty medals and bent
syringes in everything ♪ The martyr’s life is
not the life you chose ♪ Fortunate son you
have only one choice ♪ Heart betrayed by
the voices of the past ♪ Forget but don’t
forgive yourself ♪ ‘Cause you will
never be resolved ♪ With the passing of the fall ♪ Snow will cover
all the family fields ♪ But gravestones they remain ♪ Gravestones they remain ♪ Hey, hey ♪ Hey, hey ♪ Hey, hey ♪ Hey, hey ♪ Do you remember
when you had no voice ♪ Your mother left you
with no more choice ♪ You couldn’t laugh,
you couldn’t love, ♪ You couldn’t die for
the god above for anything ♪ Do you recall the summer dance ♪ And all those girls
that held your hand ♪ The bomber jacket
you couldn’t wear, ♪ Your brother left
you with no more ♪ Care for anyone ♪ The martyr’s life is
not the life he chose. ♪ Fortunate son trade
your house for a gun, ♪ But the house holds the
life your brother lost ♪ Forget but don’t
forgive yourself ♪ ‘Cause you will
never be resolved ♪ With the passing of the fall ♪ Snow will cover
all the family fields ♪ But gravestones they remain ♪ Gravestones they remain ♪ Hey, hey ♪ Hey, hey ♪ Hey, hey ♪ Hey, hey ♪ That’s where your
brother was laid ♪ A hero in a family grave ♪ Your only burden is your
shame but know your sacrifice ♪ Gave your son the
honor of a family name (cheering)
