You ever heard the story of Mr. Faded Glory?
Say he who rides a pony must someday fall
I been talkin' to my alter
Life is what you make it
And if you make it death well then rest your soul away
Away away yeah child
It's a broken kind of feeling
She'd have to tie me to the ceiling
A bad moon's a comin' better say your prayers
I wanna tell her that I love her
But does it really matter?
I just can't stand to see you dragging down

So I'm singing
This is my kinda love It's the kind that moves on
Yes it does

I uses to treat you like a lady
Now you're a substitute teacher
This bottle's not a pretty, not a pretty sight
I owe the man some money so I'm turnin over honey
You see Mr. Faded Glory is once again doin' time

This is my kinda love
It's the kind that moves on
Yes it does
Like a crown of thorns it's all who you know
So don't burn your bridges woman cause someday, yeah

Kick it!

Baby i said com' on, com' on, com' on, com' on yeah I said baby don't burn your bridges woman

    There isn't supposed to be some divine underlying meaning, this is a grunge song! Andrew was likely strung out on heroin when he wrote it. Well rest his soul... Rip

    Awesome song. Dysfunctional relationship and you can feel the pain. The only love this person gets is the kind that leaves him. He realizes that he is treating his current relationship badly vs. How he did before. The pain is just palpable.

    The one that got away and you're sad... But the time goes by and you realize that you actually hated the chick. Yeah, you liked having someone close, but she wasn't who you were meant to be with. This is my kind of love, the kind that leaves me alone.
