Patriot's Heart - American Music Club

If you want to see something patriotic there's a stripper
He don't that look that good
But he's got an all american smile
That fills his underwear with all the lonely dollars
From all the lonely men
Who no one ever suffers
Who wait around this bar
And spend all their lonely hours
They're already gone
No one's running for cover
The farther you run away
The more you have to hide in the dark
White as the worm that crawls in the patriot's heart

It is so red white and blue the way he works the bar
Selling his embraces like Mr. President or a fallen star
And he don't care if you're worldly or wise
He's just looking for men with sin in their eyes
And he always says the same thing
He says "So how you doin' baby
I'm your rod and your staff
And for a tip you can touch me"
And after a few tequilas I become something holy
And this crappy little bar with its sweating mirrors
And its mildewed ceiling
Are more love
Than even natural selection
And dollar for dollar babe
It's a better bargain
The more you pay the more I can break you all apart
And dollars pour like ashes from the patriot's heart

Now he knows that your good time will kill him
But the thought of getting old, well it does not thrill him
He says "give me all your money and don't tell me what you're thinking
I'm the past you wasted
I'm the future you're obliterating
Ah, c? mon grandpa remind me what you're celebrating
That you're heart finally dried up
Or that it finally stopped working
And how you make a dead man come
You learn the undertakers art
And make 'em shine like the alcohol that preserves the patriot's heart

We all want a patriot's heart
Give me your patriot's heart

You can see him fade with the dawn and a pile of washingtons
His head in a spin, he's happy to pass out again
He would rather fade into the static than hear the violins
That whine like old lovers who whine that they love him
He would rather laugh alone in the dark with the soft hands of heaven
Because they'd leave him alone with his entertainment system
He does it for the money but he gives more than he's given
He does it for the money but he gives more than he's given
And it's only when he's naked that he feels his heart
In the whorehouse desert of the patriot's heart

We all want a patriot's heart
We all want a patriot's heart
