Lyrics ~
Post-Modern Lament

 


I hear they're burning men when the sun goes down on the desert ground
And if you're close enough to that fire light, you can see the neon blue
You and I could have high times tonight, baby, if we wanted to
If you're fixing up too, don't you know I'll be following you, and we can be there soon

I've spent a lot of time looking out on the edge for my redeemer
And these white-washed eyes, if you think you must know, well, they've never seen
I must confess that I've looked everywhere for that come-hither smile
If you cross her path, oh, won't you think back on this, and kiss her once for me

I never thought I'd see the worst of it by now
Never thought I'd live to see the day
I never thought I'd get so used to it by now
Never thought I'd live to see the day

I'll bet you I could go play a round of golf and never leave your front lawn
And just as easily, oh like you, more quietly, I could go mad inside
You can call it life, you can call it some kind of fucked up American dream
I'll say it another way, you know baby, who's not to blame?
You know you can't deny it

You must have a million ways that you could wake up each day feeling overjoyed
But if you let the dream wear off, you ain't ever gonna find a-one that's one day gonna let you be
And I know we're all pretenders, babe, caught up in a warp-speed world that's filled up with hyperjive
Now it's a battleground, but no, not a one of us got to let it be

I never thought I'd see the worst of it by now
Never thought I'd live to see the day
I never thought I'd get so used to it by now
Never thought I'd live to see the day

And I only know it was the night, child
I only know it was the night
