lyrics

Singing these songs is my salvation, my death sentence, and my damnation
All night diners and filling stations
They’ll swallow body and soul
Like the graveyard with its teeth of alabaster stone

But for now it’s brown liquor, burnt rubber, interstate signs
A man needs a little sumpin’ sumpin’ on the side
I’ve got nothing to lose but to lose my mind and my money to get myself a honey
Negotiations in the parking lot of a Parkersburg Denny’s

Snakeskin sweaty boots, cottonmouth blues, my mama didn’t raise no goddamn fool
I heard Gabriel’s trumpet ‘neath a seasick moon
I awoke behind a liquor store
Hell, it was only my head resting drunk on the horn

Sometimes I feel like I just can’t take it, got a premonition and I just can’t shake it
Dead like Elvis on the toilet bowl naked
These dreams, they’re never what they seem
Like 25 cent rubbers from vending machines

Singing these songs is my salvation, my death sentence, and my damnation
Following visions and hallucinations
Broke, I can’t carry a note
Hell, I’m as rusty as the razor held up to my throat
