The days are dark, and so are my friends
And I long to tell you I’m free, but fit with guilt
But I got ways to fly
I got all the ways down, babe
We could swim wide pools to the hills of snow
At the Cadillac Hotel where the salesmen rest.
I’ve earned the best love there is.
Yes I have.
The clocks all dance, the dog barks
And I long to tell you I’d kill that dog for you
‘Cos I know what it’s like to push someone far away
To feel distance in your lungs when you smoke
I’ve earned all the hearts I can break, and some money
I’ve earned a face in the crowd
And a Godless sky.
