lifeblood: songs: lyrics: dirt and dead ends


you're looking at foreclosure
and doing time
and it don't sound good
this time
they found the meth
and the scales
and the wife
that made your life hell

and all that
time
you were telling me
you were fine
ah silly man
silly man
so i got your dog
how is that
i made it nice i
wrote a check
and you cut the weeds back
on my drive
cause you're a good guy
deep down inside
what makes a boy like
you go bad what
makes a man
so lonely and sad
that he'd poison
all you know
and in one year
just let it go
and all that
time
you were telling me
you were fine
ah silly man
you're silly boy
yeah it's been you and me
on this frontier
trying not to be suburban
pioneers
fighting off the pavers
and the associations
and the covenants
against the trailers
i remember how
how we used to laugh at
all those rotten men
in their camo drag
with their advantage
and their guns
up the deer stand
shooting up a storm
and all thatsuburban time
you were telling me
all those lies
ah silly man
i'm a silly girl

yeah you and me
we used hibernate like bears and
when we finally come up for air
now everything's all
marked and cleared
survey flags flying
everywhere
once you told me what
what i'll miss the most is
just being
the only ones
with our dirt
and our dead ends
and no one
to turn us in
once you told me what
what i'll miss the most is
just being
the only ones
with our dirt road
and our dead end
