lyrics

oh, michigan
the train comes all night long to pass your empty factories
where our fathers used to work before the industry collapsed
yeah that was back during a time when cities grew up too fast
and we learned the american dream just wasn't built to last

these dreams weren't built to last
machines weren't built to last
bodies weren't built to last, to last, to last, to last
(x2)

oh, michigan
we used to swim in your nestle waters way back when
it was just a lake and we wished that we could bottle this feeling
but all that's being bottled now are just the rhythms
of a system too tall to tear down without machine guns

these dreams weren't built to last
machines weren't built to last
bodies weren't built to last, to last, to last, to last
(x2)

oh, michigan
lone kids in cornfields count the stars with eyes like petoskey
while city dwellers plant heirloom seeds until their hands bleed
and the highway bus brings you to me while all the world sleeps
don't we each have just a part of what we all need

these dreams weren't built to last
machines weren't built to last
bodies weren't built to last, to last, to last, to last
(x2)

oh, michigan
