The Avett Brothers – Down With The Shine lyrics

Down with the shine, the perfect shine
That poisons the well and ruins my mind.
Oh, I get took for a ride every time.
Down with the glistening shine.

It's in with the new and out with the old.
Out goes the warm and in comes the cold.
It's the most predictable story told.
It's in with the young and it's out with the old.

Down with the shine, the perfect shine
That poisons the well and ruins my mind.
I get took for a ride every time.
Down with the glistening shine.

A belly full of high dollar wine.
A fat hand and a fat wallet, too.
Things change and get strange with this movement of time.
It's happening, right now to you.

Down with the shine, the perfect shine
That poisons the well and ruins my mind.
I get took for a ride every time.
Down with the glistening shine.

It's a real bad time to bring up the truth.
Though we've searched, we've found no fountain of youth.
Not in Spain, no where near, not anywhere close to here.

Oh, there's nothing good, because nothing lasts.
And all that comes, it comes here to pass.
I voice my pain, but the change will not last.
All that comes, it comes here to pass.

Down with the shine, the perfect shine
That poisons the well and ruins my mind.
I get took for a ride every time.
Down with the glistening shine.

I get took for a ride every time.
Down with the glistening shine.

Down with the glistening shine.

Down with the glistening shine.

Down with the glistening shine.
