Don't touch my vein with your new needle,
don't be afraid of the pinebeetle,
just rest assured that there will be another day to.
It may be here and maybe not,
and I'm not sure of all we've got,
a season ticket to the war,
for the human heart.

So let us gather by the light
some people hurt, some people might,
I hold you in my mind tonight to great distraction.
And tender is my sleepy bed,
might club me in my sleepy head,
and eating dinner with your friends,
by their cabin on the lake.

And has it really been this long since we were free?
I will now hold my head up high,
and I will walk into the light,
erasing every trace in sight,
of every memory.

So what's your problem, what's your beef?
I've got this gap between my teeth,
and but for this I might have been a different man.
And by your watch some time will pass,
and by your wine from glass to glass,
and I have seen the coming of our precious lord.

We all unfold our pages from right to left,
someday I'll get a used guitar,
and on its string I'll try to play
this lonesome tune to you.

We all have sinned, we all have saved,
and much of this our true heart gave,
we all have given to our grave our own excesses.
So watch me blow into some hat,
part clouterly (?) part sacred cow,
and I am ready for my close up,
with the lord.

    General Commenthere's my interpretation... pretty much the same... just fixed up the end a bit really...

    Don't touch my vein with your new needle
    Don’t be afraid of the pine beetle
    Just rest assured that there will be another day to
    And maybe here and maybe not
    And I'm not sure of all we've got
    A season ticket to the war for the human heart

    So let us gather by the light
    Some people have some people might
    I hold you in my mind tonight to great distraction
    And tender is my sleepy bed
    Nightclub me in my sleepy head
    Eating dinner with your friends
    By their cabin on the lake

    And has it really been this long
    Since we were free
    I will now hold my head up high
    I will walk into the light
    Erasing every trace in sight
    Of every memory

    So what's your problem what's your beef
    I've got this gap between my teeth
    And but for this I might have been a different man
    And by your watch some time will pass
    And buy your wine from glass to glass
    I have seen the coming of our precious Lord

    We unfold our pages from right to left
    Some day I'll get a used guitar
    And on it's strings I'll try to play
    This lonesome tune to you

    We all have sinned we all have saved
    As much of this our true heart gave
    We all have given to our grave our own excesses
    So watch me blow in two somehow
    Part claire de lune part sacred cow
    And I am ready for my close up with the Lord
