Bought a Bride
by Brand New



Trees will make a forest
Trees will make a bow
These are all the harder
Words you have to know
If everyone's a structure
Where their own savior sits
I'm a little red house
But no one's living in it

Cars are little blood cells
We are oxygen
City is the airways
Suburbs appendages
She was feeling lonely
Tired of the hive
Rented out a family
And he bought a bride
Bought a bride
Bought a bride
Bought a bride

Little cities' names on very lonely maps
They tied her up and laid her on the train tracks

Where are all the seedlings
We grew for violins?
Down in Jersey lumber
Still in prosthetic limbs
Should've been a soldier
I could've fought and died
There's no revolution
So I bought a bride
Bought a bride
Bought a bride
Bought a bride

Coming down the aisle while the horns play Taps
They tied her up and laid her on the train tracks

If somehow I was new and everything was unsaid
I'd go and buy a hammer, never sing again

Sleeping on a stairway
Dreamt I had a boat
Sailed it out the harbor
Shot it full of holes
Folded up my prayer book
I couldn't see the lines
Drowning in a kelp bed
I bought a bride.
