I just found me a bottle of blues
Some strange comfort for a soul to soothe
Ain't it hard, ain't it hard
To want somebody who doesn't want you

And I've been waiting for a year or a day
Some strange weather must be blowing' my way
'Cause I got no mind to go or to stay
Or be left behind

Holding' hands with an impotent dream
In a brothel of fake energy
Put a nickel in the graveyard machine
I get higher and lower

I get higher and lower
Like a tired soldier
With nothing' to shoot
And nowhere to lose it's a

I'm over the rails and out of the race
And the crippled psalms
Of an age that won't thaw
Are ringing in my ears

Holding' hands with an impotent dream
In a brothel of fake energy
Put a nickel in the graveyard machine
I get higher and lower

I get higher and lower
Like a tired soldier
With nothing' to shoot
And nowhere to lose it's a
Bottle of blues

There's definitely a plan

Well I just found me a bottle of blues
Some strange comfort for a soul to soothe
Ain't it hard, ain't it hard
To want somebody who doesn't want you

Holding' hands with an impotent dream
In a brothel of fake energy
Put a nickel in the graveyard machine
I get higher and lower

I get higher and lower
Like a tired soldier
With nothing' to shoot
And nowhere dreams it's a
Bottle of blues
Bottle of blues

And I'm a [Incomprehensible] in the back of a
