I love this fucking country
And she loved me more than I could imagine
So I waited ‘til she slept then I stepped into traffic

Ran away from the backyard to drift some more
Woke up in Texas next to a liquor store
With a woman who don't even drink alcohol
Big letters IRONY tagged on the wall
She was named for another flat land
We had a strong back then
In common we had a bond
That would never see the break of dawn
To damn afraid of the queen tryin’ to take the pawn
Threw that away
Yes, yes, headed out west
And got undressed
With the nurture that she gave me made me trip and get obsessed
There was a lady in Los Angeles
That handled just the way the manual suggests (the way the manual suggests)
She turned me on to music that I never heard before
She told me stories from a cup I haven't learned to pour
And I don't know what hurt it more
Professional journals or perpetual burn holes
Scarring up the dirty floor

Peace
Found a hollow hole in the Colorado snow
It's like I follow anywhere that el Diablo go
Took a stroll with a feline
And sat silent while the snowflakes fell into the design
Can't let her dance up on top on the top floor
Been there, done that, what do you think it's locked for?
I've lost more to my traveling soul
Then I care to talk about so I'll be out, I'll be on the road
Down, down, down in Gainesville
No stranger to shame, Coltrane and pain pills
Sometimes the ceiling’s too easy to stare at
But it keeps me from a forest full of snare taps and bear traps
And it can't come clean without the sunbeams
And it ain't complete without the drum beats
I can tell she don't want me “As is”
Time to climb back into the van and makes the back stiff
I had to add one more story to the infinite
Already interwoven through a New York cigarette
Ex lover and a best friend, best lover and an ex friend’ll bend
For alcoholic sentimentalism and the rhythm of
Religion on the PA
Make the people here say
God bless the DJ
She stays to wait for a replay
While I wonder if I'll be able to hear it from the freeway

Chicago inside of an empty bottle
There's a thin line between gossip and gospel
And there's a house over there near Wicker Park
Where I found out smart was afraid of the dark
Had to break her heart just to help me heal up
Tie a knot in the stomach just to help me seal up
And make sure the demons stay beneath the core
Pray for you and yours and whomever you believe in more
Look around you there's angels amongst us
Look around you there's angels amongst us
Sitting in the rain at some sidewalk cafe
Half of her wet cigarette in the ashtray
She’s trying to find a lost soul to save
And I'm a lost soul trying to find a road that's paved
Keep faith in my suitcase, packed my beliefs
Angels exist I've even seen some sleep

I love this fucking country
And she loved me more than I could imagine
So I waited till she slept then I stepped into traffic

    General Commentlove this song!. sluggo writes: This song is about not spending enough time on the road. Or maybe it's about this problem I have where I fall in love with anyone who'll fuck me. Maybe it's about you.

    General CommentFor some reason, every time I listen to this song I think about two things, he's either talking about:
    1. Girls he met on tour that he fucked around with.
    2. Or the cities he's been to all trough his touring across the country.

    Song Meaning"In common we had a bond
    That would never see the break of dawn
    To damn afraid of the queen tryin’ to take the pawn"

    The best lyrics about one night stands period.
