We've all of us carried our load
Dull and young and bright and old
But thieves and liars rule everything we know
And thieves and liars rule everything that grows

All we want is what we're owed
We've all of us carried this load
Fucking high and awful low
We've all of us carried this load

God we've tried how much we've tried
Drunk and high we've seen the sun rise
Many sleepless nights we've seen
The sun collapsed on everything
It's only love that's worth to sing
These bells are broke but still they ring
Love and love's the only thing
Shut up awhile the birds are singing

God we've tried how much we've tried
Drunk and high we've seen the sun rise
Many sleepless nights we've seen
The sun on top of everything
Love is all that's worth to sing
We're deep in it and still we bring
The bells are broke but still they ring
The sun on top of everything

Lord let my son live long enough to see that mountain torn down
Lord let my son live long enough to see that mountain torn down
Lord let my son live long enough to see that mountain torn down
