lyrics

The dirt beneath my nails tells you I'm working
My empty wallet says that I still drink
The rust along my strings tells you I'm playing
But I wish I could tell just where the hell you've been

I scratch the paint from my voice every evening
The ringing in my ears won't go away
Rome is burning down fiddles are singing
While I whistle dixie in the rain

My shadow says it's five but I ain't shaving
My television's on and lies to me
The bags beneath my eyes the ain't done packing
So there ain't no telling when they're gonna leave

Carved into the kitchen table
Is your chicken scratch name
I'll leave the light on leave the lilies in the vase
If you come home I won't be awake

I can say that I am always treating
Myself or my things all that nice
These dirty knees have never been from praying
But I swear to god I'll always treat you right
