I was watching quietly as the drink left the bottle
I was watching quietly as the drink left the bottle
The gulp of his throat like a rusty old throttle
He was so thirsty, every ounce of the devil
He crowed through the night like a forgotten child

I am not a believer in any sense of the word
I am not a believer in any sense

But I saw you last night, in a new suit of clothes
In a tie that you swiped, from Montgomery Wards

A shave and a haircut, a shiny new dime
The scent in your pockets of roses and lime

I was tearing down cities and watched them bleed neon
Down a dozen dead roads drove straight through the sun
There all the shadows were dazzling brilliant
And the back of the sun like a forgotten child I am not a believer in any sense of the word
I am not a believer in any sense
But I saw you last night, in a new suit of clothes
In a tie that you swiped, from Montgomery Wards

When another life goes by we meet at the end with the wink of an eye, like we've seen the other side and more
