lyrics

I been readin’ the bible by cigarette light,
been lookin’ for a poet dead enough to plagiarize
I been tearin’ my thumbs apart, scratchin’ my name
into every down Hemlock from here to Cheyenne
& the stars burn white blisters in the backs of my eyes, I’m sunscorched & sober & uncauterized
& you could trail me like Ephraim through the Absaroka hills
to the cañons I fell through like handshaken deals
& we don’t build white fences & we don’t build white homes
& heaven ain’t built big enough for my kind to roam so step softly in the sugarpine, light lightly in the live oak
I’m too tired for sleepin’ to young for the cold unravel my restlessness, cinch me down tight lead me to the Clearwater, weep when I die unravel my restlessness, cinch me down tight lead me to the Clearwater, weep when I die
