lyrics

Earthquake Country
words and music by Rain Perry
c2018 Precipitous Music/BMI

Was it the babysitter
Was it the friend of the friend
Or were those aftershocks
Of an earlier event
Was it the guy at thirteen
Or something before
That put the cracks in the plaster
And warped the floor

I might not remember the earthquake
Maybe I was too young
But it’s not hard to see
The damage it’s done
I’m a little unsteady
Not entirely square
In earthquake country
You have to prepare

Place the bolts in the basement
Brace up the walls
Anchor the foundation
So the building won’t fall

We live where it shakes
So we do what it takes

Lakes become meadows
Mountains explode
Faults go inactive
Glaciers erode
And who knows what this landscape
Might look like someday
When to our daughters
We don’t have to say

Place the bolts in the basement
Brace up the walls
Anchor the foundation
So the building won’t fall
So the building won’t fall

We live where it shakes
So we do what it takes

We live where it shakes
So we do what it takes
