lyrics

Don’t get me wrong
It’s not that I don’t care
It’s been a hard year
It’s been a hard…

I had to hide
It got so dark outside
It’s been a hard year
It’s been a hard year
It started bad
Then things got worse
All we had
Was just deserts
I’ll try to say
What I haven’t been able to say
In the next verse

I lost some friends
The world’s gone to shit
The captain was an idiot
The water’s black
The crowds are bricks
The criminals act like patriots
Now I’m not saying that I’m always right
But I’m not giving up tonight
I’m just so fucking tired and sick
Of taking my place behind the pricks
That sell you out for for “nar-stars-uh-drine”
That’s a word I made up for this stupid scene
And it’s meant to suggest
No what it means is it’s Desolation Row without the poetry
And I’m starting to worry that just what it’s gonna be…

Mmm hmm
Mmm hmm
Mmm hmm

Mmm hmm
Mmm hmm
Mmm hmm

It’s been a hard year
It’s been a hard year
Are we in the clear?
