4 track cassette recording by Amy Annelle at Steele World, Portland, Oregon
mixed by Brian Beattie in the Old Wonder Chamber, Austin, Texas

lyrics

I hate this place every one of us is wasted
and there's nary a happy drunk in the house
we're a wounded lot with black holes for eyes
making believe we're what we're not

and I'm in the spotlight
I can't do nothing right
I wear all my fears here on the outside

and we are taking shots in a hospital
for wounds that you can't talk about

so you see it's time that I say
goodbye, goodbye goodbye
I'm a-gone get high, look at the big sky
watch the bats as they fly through the moonlight
it's alright
I'm a-gone down to the greenfields tonight

here we are taking shots
in a hospital for wounds that you can't talk about

oh, I say goodbye goodbye goodbye
I'm a-gone get high, look at the big sky
watch the bats as they fly through the moonlight
it's alright
I'm a-gone down to the greenfields tonight
I'm a-gone sleep in the greenfields tonight
I'm a-gone sleep in the greenfields
