One Big Town - Greg Brown

    Outside money burnt my hometown
    Like a moth in a flame
    All you got to do is travel around
    And you'll see that everywhere it's the same

    One big town
    We're living in one big town
    One big town
    We're dying in one big town
    World around

    We hear the same song, see the same show
    Under the shadow of the end--
    Fear for our children wherever they may go
    As we watch the red, red blood flow again

    And it growns unknown like a cancer
    All across the fruited plain
    Spin the wheel for an answer
    You never know what's in the wind and rain
