lyrics

Time’s been rough and I’ve struggled through enough to know that I’m better off alone. So take what you need, save the rest for me to clean. I’ll go off and I’ll move on. The devil always comes like a lover in the night. Save the kiss of death at your bedside. Time’s been rough and I’ve fought long enough to know that I’m better off at home. So take what you need, save the rest for me to cleave. I’ll move on and I hope you’ll grow up. Trouble always comes like robbers in the night. They will take, they will break, don’t you put up a fight. Devious stray, star spangled and lit. A diatribe in the ugly mouth, a self-portrait of what’s to come, because what is, is what was. We are infinite, we are all heathens. Oh! don’t steal the rain clouds from my eyes. Sulk in spite with this festering heart of mine. I was a child, I was free and I fought to believe that we are infinite, but we aren’t all poets. We are all lies and the devil always comes to my side.
