lyrics

It isn’t down to the station
No ten-boy choir to sing the score
No sad strings stir up creation
Into the street no solo pours

It is hard how them slow drugs met you on the
Wrong side of the door
And since then how them slow drugs kept you on a
Pallet down on the floor

Downtown chimneys no longer smoking
They don’t tower like before
And ashes of the fallen dollar
Lays a blanket from shore to shore

It is hard how them slow drugs met you on the
Wrong side of the door
And since then how them slow drugs kept you on a
Pallet down on the floor

It’s been harder and wild carrot growing
At the edge as silence pours
From the wall of tangled sumac
No key to jangle, no hidden door

It is hard how them slow drugs met you on the
Wrong side of the door
And since then how them slow drugs kept you on a
Pallet down on the floor
