lyrics

The elephant carries me way back when I was a kid of sixteen, living for nothing. When I fell in love for the first time I said it, I said that I would die for her earth.

So we moved to the city all the way 'cross the country. We were searching desperately for something, anything and now you're back on the west coast, that's where you belonged after all. With your family and friends, I don't blame you.

So it was me and my buddy loosed on the streets, we were kids again and it felt like the very first time I'd bled. Getting lost every night, too fucked up, I was blind as I watched a good friend dying. I swore to never do that again.

Sometimes you must turn on a dime, we were so close to bliss that time but that is to live, do it over again until you've grown sick and riddled with death. Your body get's old, one day it'll quit. I'll be the fool who keeps on digging. Sign me up I'll be the fool who keeps on digging. Sign me up, I'll be the fool.
