lyrics

Saw where your grandfather was buried in Gettysburg
Watched as my best friend got married in Gettysburg

Wedding guests, hotel rooms, time to put on your dancing shoes
Abraham Lincoln did some heavy drinking, soon as he heard the Gettysburg news
Confederate rednecks, drive up from Georgia, looking all around, feeling real sad
Middle school field trips, impressionable children, learning that war is sometimes bad

Old ladies ride in horse-drawn buggies down the streets of Gettysburg
Getting freaked out by people doing molly is normal for Gettysburg
Collapses in the temple of your body, does it feel like what you heard
At a local diner, eating eggs Benedict like a mayor of Gettysburg

so enchanted we take off our clothes inside a graveyard
Lets condensate under the starlight and surrounded by ten-thousand statues

Sorry we couldnt be the people that we thought we could be
we could not conceive, the destruction we were producing
we will never achieve the state of peace that naive people dream of
So very pleased the ceremony proceeded with just a few superficial glitches
