08. Pirate Blues

Hell or High Water
by As Cities Burn


Before you your mom and dad used to smoke in the Texas sun. They were young once too and your mom she found Jesus while your old man stepped out and drew up his veins. Itís quiet in the house of the old, you can hear through grinding teeth, clocks taking their toll. Cause time has a mind of its own, like our sun spinning around it wonít slow for you now. Oh I wanna catch in a song, notes I donít hear yet but I will when Iím gone. Iíve been pouring my heart up, up through the floorboards but you donít live here no more. Oh you wanna catch in a lens, color your green eyes, donít see just yet. The horsemen, they all blow out their torches but I can see you still shining now. But you sleep in a bed for a giant while you wait for your love to come home, but you donít know sheís not coming back. Oh I wanna find out Iím wrong and every road leads us home. Oh but Iíll never know cause I keep my eyes closed and I only go where Iíve been before. Oh say you donít know if you donít.
