Innocence lost and innocence regained?

lyrics

Golden

Call a fast & frozen memory back to mind
from a land of infamy & orange rind.
What’s been gambled is sometimes hard to find,
especially the second or the third time.
Call a fast & frozen memory back to mind.

Salvage yards & copper mines expire on a spiral vine.
Pitch the fork & wander ‘round the tines.
A belly full of oceanside helps the shore to brine.
Call a fast & frozen memory back to mind.

What’s become of devotion?
What’s become of dividing lines?
Our timely thought & chorus pours a slanted fireside.
Where’s the laughing limber summer bride?
Hidden on an open mountainside?
What’s become of devotion?
What’s become of dividing lines?

Oh, Golden is her name.
Who’s to praise & who’s to blame.
Oh, Golden is her name. [Chorus]
A steady light & a shimmering refrain.
Oh, Golden is her name.

I thought I knew her the first time.
The second time she flew by.
Thought her name might be America,
then she heaved a heavy sigh.

[Chorus]
