Track Name: Rolling Thunder
I fell in love, felt her fire
When she sang the Sunday choir
From the moment she first rose
I woke.

Disregard the state I'm in
I walk, I talk, I smell of sin
I've shattered nearly everything
I know.

Head over heels, he caught me
Poetry, he spoke so sharply
Kerouac and Ginsberg, both be damned.

If he knew my carelessness
He'd never let my love persist
He'd shake me off, I may as well be damned.

Silver stars covered by the clouds at night
In the daylight, not a cloud in sight
If you're looking for Culture,
If you're looking for Culture.

How could you even think
This choice would keep this ship from sinking
Spare me the fine grains of it all.

Disregard the state I'm in
My envy's raw, my wrath is sin
You've shattered nearly everything I know.

I found a place where the stars outshine the sun.

Shapely, but out of sorts
Put it off and roll forth
If you're looking for culture.
If you're looking for culture.

Roll on rolling, rolling thunder.
