Nowhere in this heart of mine can I find
ill will toward you
and I have looked both long and hard
for the words to bully up the truth
it always comes back to you
right back down to you

Trouble was your mother’s milk
her bible belt busted in two
your brother tall and desperate
a surrogate to drive the blame into you
to drive it all back to you
right back down to you

The windshield cracked up by your head
a spider web the neighbors gathered around
pulled that car up by the house
a man in boots kicked that windshield out
kicking it all back to you
right back down to you

A red steak and a Canadian Club
America loves a lighthearted drunk
in the rain down on one knee
tragically trying to live up.
