lyrics

I’ve got a tank full of gasoline
a crawl space of things that I don’t need
you were right the sight would bite
it left me counting digits
on a tombstone of someone unknown
we’re losing moonlight

Your eyes ride fully glazed
reconciled in this hannah plaza haze
drink to the place you’d rather be
my lighthouse beam
my actions unseen
in an Erie morning wave
a rocky mountain high
I’m a bedridden midwesterner
Oh I’m used to these cries
I’m used to these cries

From Medicine Hat to Bad Axe
and these stoplights in between
my tank half empty
the road still whispering
I’ll be up this Iron Mountain
before dusk it dries my hopes
just cut and dried in this state of lies
we’re far from home

I’ve got a tank full of gasoline
a crawlspace of things that I might need
your mother warned best stay away
they’re nothing short of cryptic
and I’ve found myself too far south for my taste
In an Erie morning wave
a rocky mountain high
I’m a bedridden midwesterner
Oh I’m used to these cries

These bedridden folks
that I’ve come to know
their history speaks their enemies weep
but they’re far from home
