about

The first single off Tennessee Stiffs' debut album, "Nightery" coming August 2015

lyrics

Well I knew, knew, knew the day would come
When I'd make that call
But I'll save that love for another day
And I sang, sang, sang the songs
That our fathers sung before
And those better days are dead and gone

These modern times, these co-called "men"
Enough to drive you mad
Squandered souls disgrace us all
They fill their greedy pockets
All up to their tailored trim
But that gold gets heavy when it's sink or swim

So come what may
The train rolls on
Only for so long
These complicated tomes.

And I'll ride, ride, ride until the desert sands
Wreck my hide
They cross my path and catch my wrath
Just waiting to collide
Well it's all just a bit of a toll
And it's all a lot of out of control
All right

And I'm lashing sticks
Right to the steel
While heathens get their sums
The fuse I lit will light that path
From here to Kingdom Come
Well you told me what I wanted to hear
But your future's never sounded so clear
All right

But come what may
The train rolls on
Only for so long
These complicated tomes

And I do, do, do everything that I can
This absolution don't come easy to these dirty hands
And I do, do, do everything that I can
This absolution don't come easy to these dirty hands
These dirty hands
These dirty hands.
