Rock Me Now

Metric

The town where she was born, like town where I was born
Was built by white settlers seeking gold and other treasures.
Like me, she feels uncomfortable in the clothing of her ancestors.
'It's not easy', she would say, putting her fingers into the
ashtray, 'It's not easy to erase your blood'

Rock me now in the arms of cobwebs
(come on, sing with me)
Roll me out in the arms of cobwebs

That night she found a man to treasure
And together they planted flowers of warning, fearing frost.
Late on shallow evenings while their enemies slept,
They hammered the soil asking for answers in green.
His value declined when he offered his name.
Why did he offer it?

His value declined when he offered his name.
(Ah ah ah ah ah)

When she was 7 years old, she saw a man get shot
But no one came for a long time
Because it happened in a remote parking lot in Las Vegas
And she was waiting for her mum to come back from work in a
Blackjack table at the Circus Circus Casino.
And that night her mum said that the two of them and the now dead guy
Were the only three people who ever lived in Las Vegas.
Everybody else just arrived, ate their complimentary shrimp cocktails
And left.

Rock me now in the arms of cobwebs
(It's a one room city, yeah)
Roll me out in the arms of cobwebs
(So can you roll with me?)
His value declined when he offered his name.
(Ah ah ah ah ah)

It's a one room city
The wall to wall to wall to wall to wall
Goes to street to street to street
