Let's go stand out on the bridge where the railroad is and watch the cars escape
Our two scarves in the wind blowing the same direction
Like two banners behind looking strained

And I don't have the patience for a life of treason
I have tried, I have done my time
Living in the shadow of the ties that bind

Always talk heroically, hanging by a string and we don't know where from
When I'm forty years old, will I regret what I'm told?
Is a life spent in beauty and deceit

I don't have the patience for a life of treason
I have tried, I have done my time
Living in the shadow of the ties that bind

I don't have the patience for a life of treason
I have tried, I have done my time
Living in the shadow of the ties that bind
