The days go by
Even when you don’t want them to
The sun outside
Lets you know there’s living to do

And I get scared sometimes
That I’ll work my whole life and die
Before I find the purpose
To my being alive

But I’ve got a bible, baby
With the shape of a whiskey bottle cut out
A whole lot of living left in me
One foot in heaven and a dirty mouth

I know time changes a lot of things
But I’m afraid I can’t be fixed
But I would give up everything
Not to feel like this

From 231
All the way down 96
The telephone poles
Lift out of the earth like a crucifix

And when the sun goes down
The only thing you can hear
Is that restless feeling
Drift across the northern hemisphere

But I’ve got a bible, baby
And a picture of Jesus on my wall
Neither one can save me
Once my faith in everything’s gone

I want to lay under the blue
Blue sky and feel
Like I’m whole again
As it was in the beginning
You can damn sure bet
It will be in the end

There’s no sense in running
From the things that cut you down
Someday you’ll look over your shoulder
To find they’re still around
