Arizona

“Stand clear of the doors, please
The doors are now closing!”
Is this not I said would happen?
You’re down on your knees
Fresh off another hosing
And fresh out of gift-wrapping

The sun rises a little earlier each day
You changed – changed as a teen
Now nothing changes – you don’t hear what I say
Your ways and means are way mean

You get what you want
As if the time stood still 1
With so many charms to flaunt
You’ll do as you will

If you want money for people with minds that hate 2
If you want to put the cart before the horse
If you must question what is clearly your fate
If you won’t accept what is merely a matter of course

The Mexicans just keep coming
It’ll take more than a fence
I need something numbing
I’m always so tense
