Here we stand
Like Adam and an Eve
Waterfall
Garden of Eden

Two fools in love
So beautiful and strong
The birds in the trees
Are smiling upon them

Since the age of the dinosaurs,
Cars have run on gasoline.
Where, where have they gone now?
It's nothing but flowers

There was a factory,
Now there are mountains and rivers
You got it, you got it
We caught a rattlesnake,
Now we've got something for dinner
You got it, you got it
This was a shopping mall,
Now it's all covered with flowers
You got it, you got it
If this is paradise,
I wish I had a lawnmower
You got it, you got it

Years ago
I was an angrier man
I pretend
I was a billboard

Standing tall
By the side of the road
I fell in love
With the beautiful highway

This used to be real estate
Now it's only fields and trees
Where, where is the town now?
It's nothing but flowers

The highway's cars
All sacrificed for agriculture
Guess we thought that we'd start over
But I guess I was wrong

Once there were parking lots,
Now it's a peaceful oasis
You got it, you got it
This was a pizza hut,
Now it's all covered in daisies
You got it, you got it
I miss the "Honky-Tonks"
Dairy Queens and 7-11s
You got it, you got it
And as these fell apart,
Nobody gave much attention
You got it, you got it

I dream of cherry pies,
Candy bars and chocolate chip cookies
You got it, you got it
We used to microwave,
Now we just eat nuts and berries
You got it, you got it
This was a discount store,
Now it's turned into a cornfield
You got it, you got it
Don't leave me standing here,
I can't get used to this lifestyle
