about

Sentimental drunken horseshit.

lyrics

I’ve been searching for your semblance
between the bad sleep and the bottle
and if I should die good riddance
I’ll see no more trouble
There’s seventy sad things you could say to me
But there’s only one reason to hop a train to Missouri
We could sleep in your truck, huff gas and get fucked up
Carve our names in our arms and hope the cops don’t pick us up

We’re doing pretty good, got no holes in our arms
What concept I had of self-love has been replaced by self-harm
You’re not fit enough to drive, drunk and blind in your left eye
There’s holes in my combat boots, but our bottle aint yet dry
Ain’t there supposed to be a reason for this heart I’ve learned to hold
in cold arms still shivering between night’s mud and dawn’s gold
in alleyways, with cardboard, we made our pallets fine
tried charting our paths to avoid doing time

I suppose I’ll keep on drinking til there’s nothing left to sell
Each second I’m away from you is a season in hell
in truth, I’ve wept too much, and sailed a drunken boat
And you are just a song that’s still stuck in my throat.
