I thought it was the 4th of July

Shower in the dark day

Clean sparks driving down

Cool in the waterway

Where the baptized drown

Naked in the cold sun

Breathing life like fire

Thought I was the only one

But that was just a lie

 

Cause I heard it in the wind

And I saw it in the sky

And I thought it was the end

And I thought it was the 4th of july

 

Pale in the flare light

The scared light cracks & disappears

And leads the scorched ones here

And everywhere no one cares

The fire is spreading

And no one wants to speak about it

Down in the hole

Jesus tries to crack a smile

Beneath another shovel load

 

Now Im in control

Now Im in the fall out

Once asleep but now I stand

And I still remember

Your sweet everything

Light a roman candle

And hold it in your hand

 

Taken in the Heiden Hotel, Catskills NY. Closed in 1987, shortly after the filming of the movie Sweet Loraine. One of many once plush resorts, now crumbling and forgotten.
