lyrics

Better say anything,
like that rusted bell won't ring in the day.
Better lay anyway,
like that empty light won't shine in the night.
Never try any high
that doesn't show but goes around,
all around, quarter up now to fill it down
but don't, don't delay,
don't take it, dont' make it my,
my mistake.
I need a line but it's so hard to find that

Chorus
It may be killing me still I will give it away.
I don't mind it filling me still I will give it away.

Losing that better way,
like that old damn tree won't stay in the ground,
using it anyhow,
like that old familiar sound long ago
from the never know
that doesn't show but goes around,
all around,
quarter up now to fill it down
but don't, don't delay,
don't take it, don't make it my, my mistake.
I need a line but it's so hard to find that

Chorus

Better say anything that old light'll bring
Better lay anyway, what a soul to stay
never try any high that just makes you sigh.
Losing that better way, that old light'll stay
using it anyhow, that was then this is
now all them little sounds
are just going round.
All around, and around,
quarter up now to fill it down but don't, don't decay,
don't take it, don't make it my, my mistake.
I need a line but it's so hard to find that
Chorus/end
