The empty tank is US
Expired milk is US
This is a test of trust
Better meet me here at dawn
Hop the wooden fence
Run past the sleeping hens
If you had any sense
You'd meet me here at dawn
Find the memory erase it from your mind
just give it up
Our friends and family will all get left befind
we'll give them up
I'm gone as light is shot
whether you come or not
I think you know you ought
To meet me here at dawn
Find the memory confront it like a crime
Beat it up
Your clothes and precious things will all get left behind
Give them up
Forget the painful past
Let go of all you grasp
This is the last I'll ask
To meet me here at dawn

    General CommentIt looks like these were taken off of cassmccombs.com here: cassmccombs.com/lyrics/

    I was really happy to see this section of his website, imagining that I could get accurate lyrics "straight from the horses mouth," however, these are clearly incorrect. If you listen to the song, he without a doubt says things that make way more sense, ie:

    "this is a test of TRUST" (trust is very clear in the recording)
    "we'll give them up" is said in some of the places where it says "just give them up"
    "I'm gone as light as shot, whether you come or not"
    "forget" not forge, and it also sounds like "path" not "past"

    I think the logical nature of the recorded lyrics suggests that these edits aren't made by McCombs after the fact to "improve" the song, because in my opinion these alternate lyrics are far worse than the recording...

    I understand this is a wiki, and I will make the obvious corrections.
