Boeing 737

Album: Smart Flesh (2011)
  • I was in the air when the towers came down
    In a bar on the 84th floor
    I bought Philippe Petit a round
    And asked what his high wire was for
    He said, 'I put one foot on the wire,
    One foot straight into heaven'
    As the prophets entered boldly into the bar
    On the Boeing 737, Lord, on the Boeing 737
    Hey little bird, would you be the one
    To nest beneath my Gatling gun?
    There's nothing left I call my own
    Come down and build me a home.

    I was in a bar when they rigged the towers
    Trying to leave all my sins
    The barmaid asked my order
    And where my mind had been
    I tried to recall the high wire
    Philippe and his foot in heaven
    As the prophets entered boldly into the bar
    On the Boeing 737, Lord, on the Boeing 737
    Hey little bird, would you be the one
    To nest beneath my Gatling gun?
    There's nothing left I call my own
    Come down and build me a home.Writer/s: BENJAMIN KNOX MILLER, JEFFREY CARL PRYSTOWSKY, JOCELYN JAGER ADAMS
