Had a dream
And I believe
We heaved relief

Setting the lay of Nebraska alight

Queen of supply-side bonhomie bone-drab
On the road
In the year of the chewable Ambien tab
And the Panamanian child
And all the remains is the arms of the angel

And they're picking at your bones
We'll come home
Quiet now
Will we now
And I'll be crowned

Setting the lay of Nebraska alight
'Til all the remains is the arms of the angelsHad a dream
And I believe
We heaved relief

Setting the lay of Nebraska alight

Queen of supply-side bonhomie bone-drab
On the road
In the year of the chewable Ambien tab
And the Panamanian child
And all the remains is the arms of the angel

And they're picking at your bones
We'll come home
Quiet now
Will we now
And I'll be crowned

Setting the lay of Nebraska alight
'Til all the remains is the arms of the angels
