Lyrics

Now that I'm alone I feel the lonely brokeness Of all the wicked avenues I've ever sold my love on All these moments of meekness and trembling subsided In the outright abandon of this orphan child. Home is on the highway living on soft bread and solace, I guess I'm waiting for nightfall or a solar eclipse And to wake up half empty Only to be filled again with mourning He's my evil shadow dove My black Palamito Can't break him like a diamond skull I can't seem to do so I Can't just rub him out like the Mob used to do so Like memories of porno and tea stains And tobacco, Oh, it's a mini disastro Bigger than the ice age don't know if baby dinosaurs Maybe could live through it, or Indians and butterflies What's crushed is my spirit, Oh I fear it is too fragile, Like fall leaves burn like paper... I always knew I would spend a lot of time alone No one would understand me, Maybe I should go and live amongst the animals.. Spend all my time amongst the animals And on the tracks I would go they lead to the sea To be amongst the animals... Oh I'm just a fall leaf something simple and shy lie that, That's how my heart lies down beside the sidewalk Like an empty restaurant filled with perfume and balloons, I sit and entertain the bizarre ghosts of my soul His name still lingers maybe lactates on my tongue Perhaps I'm just teething for a foreign fallen destiny Miserable but mine, I look like his mother Or Sophia Loren in an old fashioned movie Slow motion I cling to my child, desperate for love One day soon my brother died, made me remember all the Subordinate feelings I cast aside And maybe I had lied when I said I was ok Just getting along like a little song that stops to sing and say "Wild willow, windy winter won't you blow through me My whole eternity" Now I always knew that I would spend a lot of time alone... Nooone would understand me maybe I should go and live amongst the animals... Spend all my time amongst the animals... And on the tracks I would go they lead to the sea To be amongst the animals... Now I always knew that I would spend a lot of time alone... No one would understand me maybe I should go and live amongst the animals... Spend all my time amongst the animals... And on the tracks I would go they lead to the sea To be amongst the animals...
