lyrics

The Shakedown

I, I was only ever one step gone
cause the ties, that bind you,
well they do drag on

Pity the man saw the whole thing coming
Pity the man pulled the curtains down
Pity the man heard the old bones rattle back round

Time, it will only heal flesh and blood
But when you’re lying, at the bottom of the hole you’ve dug

All of the doors that you shut spring open
All of the sorrows you thought you’d drowned
Dig at your soul as the old bones rattle back round

They come in through that old window
Creepin’ as the cold wind blows
They shake as the lights sink low
They shake you through it all
They shake you through it all

I’ll wait til the earth stops turning
I’ll wait til the house falls down
I’ll wait til the vultures circle
Find these old bones
Pick them clean, well…

I’ve been biding all my time
Thinking that I’d left behind
Something that I’m yet to find
And I’ve been through it all

Like they came through that old window
Creepin’ as the cold wind blows
They shake as the lights sink low
Ah they shake you down
To these bones
These bones
These bones…
