You play me like a piano in the night.
Yea, im in shackles every day when I step outside.
I can’t see the sun, I can’t see the sky.
And I wont go where you want me to go.
If you cut a tree off of its root.
You won’t get much out of it.
Don’t try to love so deep inside anymore.
You’ll get caught at the door.
Yes, I pay for all my pride.
Everything I keep inside.
Do you know this man?
He lies behind his teeth.
It lies behind everything.
An eastern son in the west.
He’s getting sad, oh he’s getting mad.
I think it’s getting worse, they spin like a storm.
Always in control.
No direction of home, no palace to go.
Just chasing the sun.
Hope for the light to shine.
If I see him out on the highway.
I’d rough him up or shoot him down.
If I see her out on the highway.
With that bright hair in the night.
I can’t take it.
The afternoon birds are singing.
They are on the final tune.
And it’s pretty just to hear them singing.
Ain’t it nice to hear something nice.
You step outside and il leave the windows shut
and the power goes out every time
you got the will but you dont have the heart for now
you’re leaving your time out
go get your time ive seen you
you’ll take in the chains and the shackles
yea th dark takes all my secrets
and it leads me somewhere else
then i climb out of the window
dont stop by leaving the rops hanging overhead
i dont think i really see what i see behind these walls
i dont care
i take my time down that road
we leave our cars parked in the dark betweens the lines outside
we are going real fast to nowhere
weve got the blues
im not getting the connection im not seeing the rules
im walking outside as the November fools put on their glasses
im crawling but im not moving fast
if you aks me where im going, i dont know. im spinning
just as fast as were spinning, we are going down
we are leaving now
welcome to this carnival of souls
make sure you take your hat off at the door
dont forget to tip your bartender
tip him well
this place looks like mirrors
we can ourself for who we are
we all just sit around the table
were already dead
this is a carnival and theres no getting out
i met a women at the end of the town
she was growing her hair out to see it out
she saw that i never had my feet so stuck to the ground
i answered that the concret was so heavy
so much heavier than these bones
spaces we never thought we would end up in
but im gonna go
theres no more getting out
out on the highway spinning wheels
but these wheels to me out to fields
i sleep with one eye open
i sleep with one eye open
i still see it
Every night i can feel
your here then your gone
your taking all your time
i wait for your note int he mail
I feel like you were just close to me
i think your city legs have walked to far
but i dont think i can show you anymore
i can take you home
i know you’ve seen it, i know you’ve searched all day and night just to feel whole
so your not alone, you search all night
Every mans got a queen, but every mans got a dream
times not on your side
you couldn’t see it if you tried
