It's pretty good, the wine
The way that we look
At ten to eight in the morning
Yeah, just talkin'
Still awake in dawn and dew drinkin'
Thinkin' always

Rememberin' the laughs, the time we got high
For seven days down in New Orleans
And it seemed like no one else knew
We were just the moon and sun

In fog before the heat burned it away
And took the sleep from tired heads
On beds of reachin' hands
Road trip, breath and long tall freedom

Then you long for the days
Trippin' down the long road
Just reading' the signs
That show you the way

To higher place, you meditate
To feel the quiet of the earth
Yeah, that was back when we used to be alright

Another shame the way the city smells worse
On a hot day in August, 2 PM
Right before us good movers move
And the shakers break our hearts

Get home to country love
And the garbage dump by
The dried up creek near the forest
That once had a life
And then it turn on the news
Somebody shoot me soon

I'm tired of overheatin'
Fallin' quick to bending knees and broken veins
Of always needin' faith to get to shore
And break all the vows, I've made

Then you long for the days
Trippin' down the long road
Just readin' the signs
That show you the way
To higher place, you meditate
To feel the quiet of the earth
Yeah, that was back when we used to be alright

No time or presence of mind
To wonder why no time for questions
Of why? I wonder why something's wrong?
Again the noise shakes the ground
There's a rage in the crowd
I'm a face in the crowd, face in the crowd
Face in the crowd

What's your name?
You're sinkin' in the sand
Standin' next to me
A river runnin' through your pants
Afraid to trust me when my hands
Are helpin' you

Then you long for the days
Trippin' down the long road
Just readin' the signs
That show you the way
To higher place, you meditate
To feel the quiet of the earth
Yeah, that was back when we used to be alright

Alright, back when the truth was the way
And the [Incomprehensible]
He used to be alright
