lyrics

Well, big bad man come into town
Gave sweets to the children
Pushed their daddies around
Made the streets so bright in the zones of blight
No more fear in the hearts of whites
He built a hall, put on a show
From high above, watched his boulders roll
Then he bought Main Street and the old Town Hall
He named his price, his face on every wall

Now the factories have all shut down
No more cloth stitched in this town
So the only job for boy and I
In the prison making tiles shine
Someday that man will come here too
With that magic hat, spit and glue
He’ll wash the stone, paint the brick
Rename the streets
And make the clocks all tick on time
He’ll make us run on time

And every town will celebrate someday
Waving sweatshop flags and grande lattes
Wearing culture on their backs
Wearing spirit on their hats
One by one they’ll join the parade and celebrate
Yeah, every town will celebrate someday

Now corners near and corners far
Are somehow the same coffee bar
And community is felt again
Thanks to folks I’ve never met
They slayed the artists, sold their arts
Gave the toddlers shopping carts
Raised the prices, raised the rent
Some days I wish that I could go back again
No, I can’t go back again

Just like they do in Florida
Down in Celebration, Florida
And when every road is Main Street, U.S.A
We’ll be safely kept at bay from any disruption or display
Of truth, adventure, love and rage

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
