Daughters of nowhere, half the time "It's been a good long while, had a home of mine" Pay em in dinner and rye, and lies sometimes I've lived life once or twice, once or twice Gonna head out west, for weeks too long Tryin' to find the love you knew all along Running from the one you thought brought you down Girl, the sun rises east if you turn around, turn around Heartbreaker was right, bout that wind tonight Georgia's right, I gotta say What's a fleet worth, when the water ain't Woke this morning, a left of shame Wish this town had caused the blame Heartbreaker was right, bout that wind tonight.

Fall back You in your new dress Curse that, it's gonna be a big mess Go find yourself a devil Knee-deep in the details Still waxing on your theory: "We're all the same" Fall back Where'd you get that silly little notion we're all the same?
3.
I'm still two weeks from everywhere You fly a flag, says you don't care I'll break your heart just for the taste You right my wrongs when I see your face You're not here when you're with your trouble You're not here and who's to blame? I'm still two weeks from everywhere You fly your flag, says you don't care I'll break your heart just for the taste You right my wrongs when I see your face You're not here when you're with your trouble You're not here and who's to blame? You're out pointing fingers And I'm stuck out in space

Well, it's as simple as a secret to the setting sun About as calm as the finger on your loaded gun Thirsty as a devil or a cactus bud She comes down to raid the town Watch the night run I could use a wave to wash me out Watch me from your tower in the pale blue sky You're posted like a raven without wings to fly The face in the mountain's got nothing to say He keeps his eyes on the prize of another day I could use a wave to wash me out
5.
You can hold a barrel to my back And I'll walk thirty paces towards Any given sunset You can take the fire from my lungs But you'll only spit it back out We're hungry We're tired Tired eyes under cover of the moonlight We're hurting Lord, that's for certain Ousted from the flatlands Soaking up the moonlight

Tortured is the soul who waits to long Blessed is the one who bears the burden I was urged to write a bit of this down Point your pins near my personality Waste your water on the fire I keep lit inside of me How am I suppose to keep it all down? I'm in such a rush My mind is catching up to me I'm in such a rush to take my time The sun was going down I've never seen the clouds burn so bright Well something's going down Take a ride, ease the clutter Take a ride, come on and make sense of it all Take the ride I'm in such a rush My mind is catching up to me I'm in such a rush to take my time Setting out, rolling heavy on the highway Getting lost, taking any chance we can find Tomorrow, we'll all be so fine These roads we take ain't sacred Their lines are mapped out all so square These skies are all we have to share I'm in such a rush My mind is catching up to me I'm in such a rush to take my time

Sometimes I don't know where this dirty road is taking me Sometimes I don't even see the reason why I guess I keep on gamblin', lots of booze and lots of ramblin' It's easier than just a-waitin' 'round to die One-time friends I had a ma, I even had a pa He beat her with a belt once 'cause she cried She told him to take care of me, she headed down to Tennessee Oh where I'm waitin' 'round to die Now I'm out of prison, I got me a friend at last He don't drink, cheat or smoke or lie His name's Codeine, he's the nicest thing I've seen Together we're gonna wait around and die

Is it the mild-mannered medicine that's getting you down? Or the sorry simple subjects trashing their hometown? Your morals never mattered till you through em out loud My hands won't stop from shaking, all these evils around Modern maps don't chart em like the triangle found or walls they built to keep out all them animal sounds Save us from our saviors, their batons raining down My head just keeps on spinning, all these evils around But how you let us in when most wouldn't offer? How you kept us honest when most wouldn't bother? How you let us in when most wouldn't offer? How you kept us honest when them evils never bothered?

Hey there Nightfall, pour me some wine I heard you laughing through the hill and the pine You come on soft and make your way Down the river with yesterday Hey there Nightfall, pour me some wine I'm so sick of fighting this old head of mine Well I could fill you with stories till rise & shine So hey now Nightfall, won't you spend some time? Hey there Nightfall, pour that wine
