Lyrics

Take this shroud off of me I ain’t done yet

Take these shackles off my legs let me do what I do best

My heart my head my soul possessed

I don’t know if I’m cursed or blessed

 

All the things you ever tried to tell me

Are somewhere spinning around with all the other words          

And the only thing I ever wanted to be

Somehow seems suddenly absurd

 

And I feel just like a driver

That’s gotten lost along these roads

Waiting for some kind of direction

That could ease my worried soul

Take me in and give me shelter

From the pleasure and the pain

‘Cause I don’t even have the sense

To come in out of the rain

 

It’s so quiet right now I can hear the hurt

I’m pacing never ending circles into this sacred earth

And you don’t know the shape I’m in

I’m out for blood I came to win

 

And all the things you said just to try to heal me

Are somewhere spinning around with all the other words

And the only thing that ever mattered to me

Somehow just never came in first

 

And I feel just like a driver

That’s gotten lost along these roads

Waiting for some kind of direction

That could ease my worried soul

Take me in and give me shelter

From the pleasure and the pain

‘Cause I don’t even have the sense

To come in out of the rain

 

This whole town was lit by lightning

And these songs just break my heart

I always try to do the right thing

But it’s so hard when we’re apart

 

So let me lie out in the sun and smoke my cigarettes

Let me drink this glass of whiskey and think on what ain’t come yet

Get it out of my head and off of my chest

I don’t know if I’m cursed or blessed
