Bright Eyes – Road To Joy lyrics
The sun came up with no conclusions
Flowers sleepin in their beds
The city cemetary's hummin
I'm wide awake it's morning

I have my drugs I have my women
They keep away my loneliness
My parents, they have their religion

But sleep in seperate houses
I read the body count out of the paper
And now it's written all over my face
No one ever plans to sleep out in the gutter

Sometimes that's just the most comfortable place
So I'm drinkin, breathin, writin, singin
Every day I'm on the clock

My mind races with all my longings
But can't keep up with what I got
So I hope I don't sound too ungratefull
What history gave modern man
A telephone to talk to strangers
A machine gun and a camera lense
So when you're asked to fight a war that's over nothing
It's best to join the side that's gonna win

No one's sure how all of this got started
But we're gonna make em God damn certain how it's gonna end

Oh yea, we will, oh Yea we will.

Well I could have been a famous singer if I had some one else's voice
But failure's always sounded better
Let's fuck it up boys, make some noise!

The sun came up with no conclusions
Flowers sleepin in their beds
The city cemetary's hummin
[screaming] I'm wide awake it's mornin'!!!!
