about

When is it that the southwest became what it has become? When I was young it represented the place where people would live and let live, at least it did to me. National Parks and the BLM were a good thing, because that meant open space, silence, beauty, and wildness. There has always been a competing myth; that these spaces should be sacrificed to huge pickup trucks, gunfire, mining pits, logging. Now, fueled by certain national cultural fights, the latter myth has gotten more virulent, with the whiff of apocalypse and civil war about it. It feels like people are lining up to fight over the new Jerulsalem, and we know how that goes.

lyrics

There’s something broken out here
But I don’t know its name
I saw a beautiful hole up in the sky yesterday
And I just want to go there
I just want to live there now

At the Buckskin Saloon
Knee deep in SUV’s
had a double helping of
some of that
western authenticity
covered in gravy oh no

C’mon tell me man
How long will you last
With no air conditioning
And no cable TV?

you can keep your holocaust
I will sit out the reckoning
with the great unwashed
out here

And nothing is the same
Just like it never was
and the dream they’re spinning now
It’s downright dangerous
