verse

It's in the evening
and everything's all right
Pistol-packin' mama, don't you tell me dirty lies
for I'll be sleeping
underground tonight
and the starlight and the moon will shine without my oversight...

chorus

Wasting away, spilling time from a bottle
Keeping one hand up on the wheel and one hand on the throttle
Wasting the day, spilling time from a bottle
Watching all of our dreams like the stars going out one by one.

verse

I've got no time now
for things I can't abide
and trying to escape yourself requires a long long ride
so grab a barstool
to keep yourself afloat
If the weather in my head gets out, you'll need your overcoat
