Ain't No Lookin Back

Ain't No Lookin Back
    by Jewel Kilcher  (September 1996)


All of your ghosts 
Litter the horizon
Glittering carcasses
I guess that makes twice then
Just like your daisies 
And all of your buffallo
You dont worry
The children will mend what you tore

You dress yourself in sharkbites
You kill yourself in spoonfuls
You damn all the beehives
You make love to potholes
Your attention is a junkie
It has a wandering vien    
And all of your thoughtlessness
Is dried up rain 

Aint no lookin back, now---Is there kid?
You always look to the west
You throw caution to the wind
You're on a one way track
But you cant buy caution back---Can you kid?

You killed a man
Because you made him borrow
One suicide is made up
Of ten thousand tiny sorrows
America's great
Its the land of the free
We're so independant
That we forgot how to breathe

Aint no lookin back, now---Is there kid?
You always look to the west
You throw caution to the wind
You're on a one way track
But you cant buy caution back---Can you kid?

Show me one hero
Who ain't afraid of fear
Show me one adult
That knows how to hear
"We are the future"
At least thats what you said
I wanna know:
Who's the hope of today?

There's no lookin back now for you---Is there kid?

All of your ghosts 
Litter the horizon
Glittering carcasses
I guess that makes twice then
Just like your daisies 
And all of your buffallo
You dont worry
The children will mend what you tore
