“You take too much” he says
“…from those big ideas.” he says
“Those men are all dead” he says
“And soon we will be too”
Then he says something like how he only smokes outside
“It blocks out the sun” he says
And disappears in a cloud
Nails to the bone
Piles of plans that never panned out
Nails to the bone
Wrote all these songs about a place I’ve never been
“Is it worth it?” she says
From across the water she says
“Is it worth it?” she says from a long way home
As I’m stuck inside watching her pack the car
“It blocks out the sound” she says
And disappears in a cloud
Nails to the bone
Piles of plans that never panned out
Nails to the bone
Wrote all these songs for a girl I didn’t know
In a low voice I mumble
“Hey man, I should go”
With a slow step I stumble out into the dark city streets
Nails to the bone
