Stars with Forgotten Names

lyrics by: Britton Newton




The farmer is outside in his field

Hes counting his stars, and hes naming them

With his hands folded shut in his rocker,

I believe hes forgotten his map



The farmer is outside in his field again

Hes counting his stars with forgotten names

These poor city kids like to tease him

What is it now that theyve done?


Keep your hands down

Fall down the stairwell of dreams fallen short of a life

Keep your hands down

Lose what you can, while you still have the time


Everyones got a familiar face

But, no one remembers the names

Of friends who were cold in the winter

Or the lovers who fall out of the sack


Keep your hands down

Fall down the stairwell of dreams fallen short of a life

Keep your hands down

Lose what you can, while you still have the time


Every boy needs a pony

Every man needs a gun

To fight a war over nothing

To fight a war over his dreams


Get your guns, get your guns
