Shut Down
William J. Hall - January 9, 1999

  1 Heaven and firmament
  2 Attic and basement
  3 Blast, hammer, and torment
  4 Keep moving got to pay the rent
  5 Perpetual movement
  6 Up rail down pavement
  7 From safety to weldment
  8 Keep moving got to pay the rent
  9 Bethlehem
  10 Steel
  11 Bethlehem
 
  12 Towers like battlement
  13 Filthy; magnificent
  14 Fire, so eloquent
  15 Keep moving got to pay the rent
  16 Purpose and accident
  17 Hidden and evident
  18 This will and testament
  19 Keep moving got to pay the rent
  20 Bethlehem
  21 Steal
  22 Bethlehem
 
  23 We build we monument
  24 Justify our ravishment
  25 Bottom line we represent
  26 Keep moving got to pay the rent
  27 When the well runs dry we lament
  28 What we say: we reorient
  29 Where profit is preeminent
  30 Keep moving got to pay the rent
  31 Bethlehem
  32 Steel
  33 Bethlehem
 
  34 Union and management
  35 What remains is ornament
  36 Nothing is permanent
  37 Keep moving got to pay the rent
  38 All the dreams - all the bodies spent
  39 Stand gaping in bewilderment
  40 Can you tell me where the money went
  41 Keep moving got to pay the rent
  42 Bethlehem
  43 Steal
  44 Bethlehem
  45 Bethlehem
  46 Steel
  47 Shut down
