hey brother

hey brother get yourself together don't you wait
can't you see i'm waiting in the shadows to take your place
there is a chance that i'll keep trying to tell you the truth but end up lying to you

you said you were late
and i planned my escape
such a happy fame
just another one of my mistakes
so you held your breathe
and you cursed the west
said you had no choice
you're moving back east for a better man

your mother never found a reason to hesistate
now your waiting for a warmer welcome in colder states

you said you were late
and i planned my escape
such a happy fame
just another one of my mistakes
so you held your breathe
and you cursed the west
said you had no choice
you're moving back east for a better man

loves got no border why don't you feel free?
and cross my state line and bring yourself to me
it's a hell of a struggle
grounded for years
the words that i use are to old for your ears

you said you were late
and i planned my escape
such a happy fame
just another one of my mistakes
so you held your breathe
and you cursed the west
said you had no choice
you're moving back east for a better man

next track i'll be your lampshade
