Bright Eyes – Shell Games lyrics

Took the fireworks and the vanity
The circuitboard and the city streets
Shooting star, swaying palm tree
Laid it at the arbiter's feet
If I could change my mind, change the paradigm
Prepare myself for another life
Forgive myself for the many times
I was cruel to something helpless and weak
But here it come, that heavy love
I'm never gonna move it alone
Here it come, that heavy love
Tag it on a tenement wall
Here it come that heavy love, someone gotta share in the load
Oh, here it come that heavy love, I'm never gonna move it alone
I was dressed in white, touched by something pure
Death obsessed, like a teenager
Sold my tortured youth, piss and vinegar
I'm still angry with no reason to be
At the architect who imagines
For the every man, blessed sisyphus
Slipping steadily into madness, now that's the only place to be free
But here it come, that heavy love
You're never gonna move it alone
Here it come, that heavy love
Tattooed on a criminals arm
Here it come that heavy love, someone gotta share in the load
Oh, here it come, that heavy love, you're never gonna move it alone
No I don't wanna play, it's a shell game
It's a shell game
Distorted sounds on oscilloscopes
Distorted facts I could never cope
My private life is an inside joke
No one will explain it to me
We'll be everything that we ever need
Everyone on the count of three
Everyone on the count of three
All together now
Here it come that heavy love
We're never gonna move it alone
Here it come that heavy love, playin as oscylinder rolls
Here it come that heavy love, I only want to share in the load
Oh it here it come that heavy love
I'm never gonna move it alone
