Somewhere but not here
sands falling through the clear hourglass
and out in the backyard the kids bury treasures
that they had lost.

Can you see the searchlights
on foggy nights
all bastards do get through,
we're strung out on daylight
it's alright we got shades
to pull right through you.

And pull me down
hang me all about the town.

The pavement is cracking
the earthworms are laughing
it's what they'll do.
Silence so deafening
the pulse felt is reckoning
this table set for two.

And pull me down
hang me all about the town.

From fruit stands on borrowed land
life's not all that it's cracked up to be
so choke me long enough
that I know what air tastes like to breathe.

And pull me down
hang me all about the town.
