lyrics

Held up by cold men and hard stares, nothing much to lose
Carried in a clap of thunder
Lessons learned from second hand shoes
Hearts and clubs alike, living through the night

Dealt in and dealt with by two hands, pistons cheating fire
Circling only feigning weakness
Tightening that gray high wire
More than man are we, working toward disease

I thought you outpaced it
That cheap whiskey call
Glory days held up in your high beams
Casting your rise and fall

Here now your players grow restless
One by one they’ll take their cues
Testing hands to see who flinches
Bridging stories born of other tunes
Spotlight on the scene, silence in the wings

I thought you outpaced it
That cheap whiskey call
Glory days held up in your high beams
Casting your rise and fall
