Long, Tall, and Stacked

 

Long, Tall & Stacked


You’re long, and you’re tall, and you’re stacked
And like some kind of fool, I want you back


Memories are broken, ambitious dreams are cashed
Melodies are spoken, delicious schemes are trashed
Rhymed into oblivion, the high and low are mashed
Into the long tall stacks of American culture


You’re long, and you’re tall, and you’re stacked
And you’re young, and you’re used, and you’re sacked


Market forces kill laments, burials for chords
Slaughtered horses represent last year’s chosen lords
Who bartered with the government for a table on the boards
Of the long tall backs of the corporate culture


You’re long, and you’re tall, and you’re stacked
And a song is so small and so lacked


The beat is always rhythmic, but the meaning’s all been spent
The moshers go ballistic, it’s their only chance to vent –
They’re just another statistic and their very souls are bent
To be the long tall snacks of American vultures


You’re long, and you’re tall, and you’re stacked
And so strong, but we’ve all been attacked


Reaching for the middle, now neither right nor left
Glory to the criminal, now everything’s bereft
Of even the most minimal pay-off on the theft
Of the long tall stacks of American culture


You’re long, and you’re tall, and you’re stacked
And you’re red and you’re white and you’re black


Me, I’m choosing time you see, each day is kept discrete
While they’re reproducing mindlessly, say anything to compete
For the masses cruising spinelessly on the way to never complete
The long tall stacks of a world without borders
