Highway 9 Revisited Lyrics

God said to Abraham 'kill me your son'Abe said 'Lord
it's currently being done
you think it's easy come down here
look 'em in the eye and make 'em disappear
we can only kill what you can't find
out here on old highway 9'
Just last year I was sneaking into bars
fake id's backseat of daddy's car
college brochures used to clean the floor
don't cost nothing to join the corps
say I'm not scared but I'd be lying
out here on old highway 9
You oughta see Baghdad when the stars come out
can someone please tell me what this is all about
Jimmy has a dad he just never met the man
writes his mother every chance he can

but he won't be writing to her no more
found his arm laying on the desert floor
found the rest of him stradling that double line
smack dab in the middle of highway 9
You can look at me and say I look the same
can't put out a fire if you can't see the flame
hang the flag on the front door
while I listen for the footsteps on the floor
killing does things to a healthy mind
stuck out here on old highway 9
I feel the rumble under my feet
the oil flows...it'll never retreat
God said to Abraham 'kill me your son'
Abe said 'Lord it's currently being done
you think it's easy come down here
look 'em in the eye and make 'em disappear
we can only kill what you can't find
out here on old highway 9'
