I thought it was a new day
I turned my sins against themselves
We were sleeping in the sheets, babe
I woke up in the air above my couch
I guess I lost my redheaded blues
Swapped them for a thousand pair of shoes
And the reflection in the barring eye
That screams for all the luck I'll never lose

I'm tying on a beery drunk
You're leaving me the fire in your eyes
To be a ship that's already sunk
And never really stood the test of time
My lines been flanked, it seems I've flunked
I've tangled with the captain, walked the plank
And I sunk

I'm from a river home
I'm from a tower made of bones
I'm from the skyline of a great big town
Life in time will count your friends
I've seen 'em fall to slow sad ends
So I'm thinkin' all the words you've thunk
And I'm tyin' on a beery drunk
