lyrics

It’s so dark outside when you can pull this shit
Your words delivered like a loaded, sour pun
So put it into perspective for me
Put a price on my fucking life
Til’ everything subsides

A smoking Mossberg’s not the battle here
Your tire tracks are as unwelcome as your stance
And in pursuit of petty heroism you will risk your neck
Just to be a rower below deck

And when morning strikes with waking’s strife
Reminding you you’ve slept
Through a full familiar day without
The low-lifes and the bets
And another Hallmark time bomb comes
That you’re sickened to accept
And all your boys get dragged to the capital
And laid out on the front steps

It’s really dark outside and I’m as innocent
As an eight-year-old boy standing with my friends
This city’s split in sections
Fuck-up, can’t you get that through your head?
Apparently I’m not dead yet

And a hundred ghosts in white lab coats
Took our misery and left
And now the whitest clouds and smallest towns
Have no one to impress
And the sun comes up and the sun goes down and
It doesn’t seem to matter that
All your boys got dragged to the capital
And laid out on the front steps

When all your boys get dragged to the capital
And laid out on the front steps
(Refrain)
