  1. Picket Fences

From The Recordings Html

Lyrics

Did you ever get that picket fence that you wanted?
The old American Dream so unduly vaunted
The perfect lawn
Two point four kids
All this is yours
If you keep your feelings hidden
Did you make that choice to live a life haunted?

Haunted by the feelings that promised alienation
Haunted by the rules passed down through generations
Haunted by the faith that taught of ruination
Haunted by the family you saw as your foundation

When we met you were so young and full of promise
But tradition weighed down on you as an onus
You couldn’t yet be
Open and free
You only shared
Your doubts with me
We waited so long for you to say something honest

Did you ever get that picket fence that you wanted?
The old American Dream so unduly vaunted
The perfect lawn
Two point four kids
All this is yours
If you keep your true feelings hidden
Did you make that choice to live a life haunted?

Haunted by the feelings that promised alienation
Haunted by those rules passed down through generations
Haunted by the faith that taught of ruination
Haunted by the family you saw as your foundation

I hope you got that white picket fence that you wanted
A new American Dream for the newly undaunted
The perfect lawn
One or two kids
A bold paradise
Where we all can live
So no one ever has to live a life haunted
