lyrics

Thread the needle with one eye closed
Steady hand like a jeweller do you suppose
Save my world with just one poke
But don't try to fix it if it ain't broke
But a stitch in time is fine if you know what you're doin'

Got bombs that whistle
You got bombs that sing
But they got 'em too
Don't mean a goddamn thing
Do you believe, the winner in time
Will be the one with the most toys at the finish line

A stitch in time is fine if you know what you're doin'
But I don't understand what you're doin'
With that blood on your hands
I don't know

It's not a case of black or white
It's not a case or wrong or right it seems
Just one thing that I know is true
You're just as damned if you're doin' it too
It seems

Don't wanna argue
Don't wanna place no blame
Each generation thought they'd be different
Just to end up the same
'Cause that money screams while ideals die
But you can't pull the wool over this boy's eyes
Yeah a stitch in time is fine if you nkow what you're doin'
But I don't understanda what you're doin'
With that blood on your hands
I don't know
I don't know

Crossing Byrds/Buffalo Springfield electric guitars and harmonies with a Sex Pistols/Ramones rhythm section was their idea and their legacy. Their signature songs Looking For Lewis And Clark and I Had A Dream have never left the airwaves. ... more
