lyrics

Romanian Dallas
Our Jesus and Elvis
For coffee and oil
The company palace
Still sending old vessels
In search of new shores
Land ahoy!
We've warned of the dangers
To good girls and boys
Take candy from soldiers
A red flag no more
So now come the imports
Our exports, our weapons of war:
A star on the screen
Their kids never dressed like that before

Romanian Dallas
The leaders allowed this
Indictment of greed
While Berlin was burning
A silent subversion
Had planted its seed
Well, I'm sorry to say
The common man ain't no working class saint
He just wants some rest at the end of the day
Whether America
Or somewhere far off in the East
He's falling asleep
Watching our programs on TV

We can't go back
This crazy old train never blew off track
This great royal ship never steered off course
Like it or not, we're moving in next door
By grace or force

Romanian Dallas
Some call it a virus
And others, the cure

If you look behind:
A runaway train still running on time
A history made of dirty secrets and lies
Etch them in stone
Then leave them behind
Far behind

about

Mischief Brew Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Emerging from the undead ashes of PA punk troupe The Orphans, Mischief Brew started with a scratchy demo tape in 2000 and has since spread the good word of anarchy, hilarity, and rebellion across state lines and even the Atlantic Ocean a few times. We've managed to exist for over 13 years in one form or another by kissing nobody's ass and doing everything ourselves, for the most part. No rules! ... more
