““Deserters,” technically a “demo” though the word has always given me fits, is the song that sparked the We Shall All Be Healed album, and has a number of images that are sort of touchstones for me.” –JD

The neighbors are cloning themselves

We found their cocoons in the garbage

We'll either stay high forever or crash

Em G Em G
Sleeping the sleep of the blessed

Picking through trash cans with you

The guy on TV is a prophet
You just have to look in his eyes
We'll either turn our lives over to Christ
or we'll just drift off
Trying to better ourselves
Giving up after one or two tries

The high school's a front for Yakuza
Everyone, everyone knows it
And we will all shortly be richer than God
if we'll just hold on
As long as we play all our cards right
As long as nobody here blows it

Drawn up a map of Rialto
The holding tank's full for the night
I heard all about it on Citizens' band
it's a brand new day
We'll be awake until Thursday
The future's disarmingly bright
