Ambivalent Landscape Z is the eighth song on the album Undercard.


Out where the water tower climbs, higher than God
Crop dust in billowing clouds and the outlaw corn, glinting goldenrod
Cold gaze of the universal harvester
Glittering on the horizon line
Every creature on earth needs a fallout shelter, this one's mine

I'll never see you again
So until then

Down by the Morton building where I first met you
Nothing but energy fields and their bright pink edges doing what they do all day
You threw your car keys away
You left a bunch of dummy footprints on the clay
I try to follow directions as they're printed on the tin but
I need a shelter to fallout in

I'll never see you again
So until then
