04 DUST AND MISERY

Dust and misery
Are what remains of you and me
Of the gentlemen in Beverly Hills
And other spots higher still
You’re not the worst, you’re not the best
You’re different from all the rest
Don’t be denied if they want you to
There’s always one who picks on you

Dust and misery
Are what remains of you and me
Of this house and the whole town
When other times have come around
Oh to be missed without being gone
Oh to suffer and yet be strong
Your love is like a golden line
Across the map of my drifting mind

The birds in the trees…
Are there trees at all?
My motor starts
Then it starts to stall

Dust and misery
Are what remains of you and me
Of donkey carts, supersonic jets
Smoke signals and the internet
If give and take is just the same
Then who could say who’s to blame?
The sky is filled with countless lights
Wish I could stop time tonight
