lyrics

I've been lying to my friends, saying that I'm fine
I need food, but my belly's full of wine
I lost my way, I lost the farm
And Aunt Amy lost it all to the law's long arm

I sure miss my sister Virginia
She's been slinging green in Crested Butte
Hold out girl, I know you got it in you
Stand tall and let your look read resolute

So can someone take me in
I'm just a worn down firing pin
Come and clean the carbon from my soul
There's filth under my skin
I've done all the deadly sins
Just don't ask me my name and take me home

I'm still getting used to having hair
Yeah they kept us bald out in the desert air
Coming under fire half the time we left the wire
And came home with hate and thousand yard stares

Me and my father, we don't speak
And he wrote me a letter late last week
Still ain't had the courage to open it just yet
My heart just can't gamble on that bet

So can someone take me in
I'm just a worn down firing pin
Come and clean the carbon from my soul
There's filth under my skin
I've done all the deadly sins
Just don't ask me my name and take me home

I'll scrape up some change, head for the barrel
I don't feel quite so lonesome when I'm there
We'll pipe out prost and pretend we're not in peril
Just flashing smiles in the face of despair

I just left my cousin a note
I'm sorry if I don't wake is what it wrote
This liver's just too tough, guess I did not take enough
And I'm ashamed to have put him through that stuff

So can someone fuck me up
With your fists or with your drugs
I've become a stranger to myself
There's filth under my skin
You don't want to know where all I've been
My sorrows are a danger to my health

So can someone fuck me up
With your fists or with your drugs
I've become a stranger to myself
