Road To Joy - Bright Eyes

The sun came up with no conclusions
Flowers sleepin in their beds
The city cemetary's hummin
I'm wide awake its morning

I have my drugs I have my woman
they keep away my loneliness
My parents, they have their religion
But sleep in seperate houses

I read the body count out of the paper
and now its written all over my face
No one ever plans to sleep out in the gutter
Sometimes thats just the most comfortable place

So I'm drinkin, breathin, writin, singin
Every day I'm on the clock
My mind races with all my longings
but can't keep up with what I got

And so I hope I dont sound too ungratefull
what history gave modern man
a telephone to talk to strangers
machine gun and a camera lense

So when you're asked to fight a war thats over nothing
It's best to join the side thats gonna win
And no one's sure how all of this got started
But we're gonna make 'em God damn certain how its gonna end
Oh yeah we will
oh yeah we will

Well I could have been a famous singer
if I had some one else's voice
But failure's always sounded better
Let's f_ck it up boys, make some noise!

The sun came up with no conclusions
Flowers sleepin in their beds
The city cemetary's hummin
I'm wide awake its morning
