Lyrics

feels bad to admit it 

but I'm glad to split the difference

don't want your forgiveness 'cause my heart is hard

We shine so bright but burn out fast before we know it 

the final wreckage of a shot down star

it's fair to be scared

it's generation daycare

destination nowhere in the land of lies

you leave me in ruins, abandoned in the jungle

overgrown, neglected, strangled up in vines

Bayou Black

Lyrics

evil deeds

so innocent at first

take a slight turn for the worse 

and pretty soon your name is cursed

evil deeds

it was all just circumstance 

took these idle hands

and made them do the devil's dance


there was a moment when i thought i saw a line

but it faded out in time

there was a moment when i thought i saw a line

but it faded out in time

'til there was no line to cross

evil deeds 

start with good intent 

soon the rules are bent 

and so begins your swift descent

evil deeds 

chill you to your bone

make them all your own

and they will turn your heart to stone

 

there was a moment when i thought i saw a line

but it faded out in time

there was a moment when i tried to tell myself

you know i could get away with it and not tell no one else

is that evil?

 

there was a moment when i thought i saw a line but it faded out in time (3x's)

there was a moment when i tried to tell myself

you know i could get away with this and not tell no one else

is that evil?

Lyrics

 

kickin' at the dog nosin' 'round in my food

but when the media comes it will be misconstrued

even you, baby, will believe that it is true

never thought that the wool got pulled over you

 

well i'm home

but i feel so far from home

 

livin' in the police state of austin, texas

where there's cameras on the red lights and they're dyin' to arrest us

where it's modern technology meets hippie sensibility

where it's "all hail the government" but nobody knows what that means

 

well i'm home

but i feel so far from home

yeah i'm home

but i feel so far from home

but i'm home

 

now don't you dare say the pledge of allegiance under God

you know God is just a theory put out there by your mom

and the evil that we see depends on whose side that we're on

it's a post-modern nightmare where everybody's got it wrong

 

well i'm home but i feel so far from home

yeah i'm home but i feel so far from home

well i'm home but i feel so far from home

well i'm home

but i feel so far from home

yeah i feel so far from home

Lord, i feel so far from home

but i'm home
