Purple Mountain Jamboree

APPEARS ON


Over bridges made of ashes
From the embers of old flames
I lost my way and hope
Now hopefully my shame
All for one free for all
They say no two for the same
Over bridges made of ashes
Let we all return from where we came

Over ample
Waves of gain to
Purple mountain jamboree
Where we always
Break out in handcuffs
From overexposure to the heat

Ain’t gonna be no tent city shakedown
Holding my wind up with it’s sail
I’m gonna change my mind in no time
Gonna be back Schools’ side riding that the rail
All for one free for all
Calling the great unwashed
Over bridges made of ashes
May we all return from when we’re lost

Over ample
Waves of gain to
Purple mountain jamboree
Where we always
Break out in handcuffs
From overexposure to the heat
All for begging for change
Begging for a change
Begging for a change
Begging for a change
I am all for
Begging for a change
I am all for
Begging for a change
In the street
Begging for change
