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
