we hear the news say
another venue's shuttering
windows to
a younger culture
as the king slumlord croaks:
"my wealth's in land
and not some queer punk rock show
or proper maintenance"

bring the pipelines
connect them to the mayor's ear
their condos
and hip replacements
bankrupt future last calls
how can the kids be heard
over gilded phones
and corporate stewardship?

i'm reluctantly aware
things can't stay
the same as they were
but rents exact
more cash in hand

how much more can we inflate
this demand
the bubble will burst
and wreck this state
our art in hand
it drowns with you

just try to point the finger
you want to point the finger, oh
the cure's with you
the cure's on you

i know you want to blame
the Donnelly's for killing sprees
but what's the last band
you caught play at the railway?

the tides are rising
to East Hastings island
it drowns its venues

i am aging out of this
problem, stat
you say i look like your
best friend's dad
my art in hand

every guest list you beg on
pays no rent
but write out a scathing
review of the set
my heart in hand
just not for you

but i guess you'll do
