Lyrics

>I was sitting in the rocking chair by the side of the house,
> Where the street light stars hung over alley way cars
> And clouds hung like drapes on your window.
> I'll get something to eat, but all these faces I meet seem so
> Hypnotizing,
> Criticizing's all I exist to be.
> Things ain't what they used to be, I've got this flickering heart set out after me,
> If my mind was a poem, I burned it up long before.
> And if I drink some more, I think I might drown,
> Slip into silence as my heart it burns out,
> I'll find the devil inside me and I'll nail him back down.
> If the day would ever come around, I'd shiver at the sight.
> I'm frightened looking out through these window pane eyes, worst when closed,
> looking inside.
> Somebody died for my sins, he swallowed my sins whole,
> but his eyes they were bigger than his belly ever was.
> Things ain't what they used to be, I've got this flickering heart set out after me,
> If my mind was a poem, I burned it up long before.
> And if I drink some more, I think I might drown,
> Slip into silence as my heart it burns out,
> I'll find the devil inside me and I'll nail him back down.
