lyrics

Release yourself from the burdens you carry
Release yourself, man, and just live where you lay
On a bed of nails or a coffin of roses
It makes no difference, just live where you lay
It was the better of days, when the sun dropped out by noon
And cast her profile across the room
All there was to say were dumb thoughts and petty observations
About the people they knew

When you wake up low and the newsfeeds say
She's got a fake gold tooth and a baby on the way
Dont you ever look back

Oh, but when you look back
Back when the fields bled green on LSD
In a counterfeit construct of '69 in 2003
The colors always look right and the uniforms precise
For a final reenactment before the dimming of the lights

She gave up cigarettes for deep breathes
She gave up whiskey for wine
She gave in to foreign concepts
Like consistency and time
...Like consistency and time
All from a pink tract house and another from of time

When you wake up low and the newsfeeds say
She's got a fake gold tooth and a baby on the way
Dont you ever look back
