David Arn – Better Off Today lyrics

Depth charge to my soul
Jigsaw piece that makes me whole
Leave your job today even if you don’t get paid
I detect tombstones in your spine
Chutes and ladders you can’t climb
Work is never done, when you play you pay

Walk streets of a battle ground
Where as a young man gods had drowned
Only dust at the edge even less in between
The clock can beat you up with it's big hand
The lightest touch can lift a heart from quicksand
She held a candle to the shore line
Illusions of fulfillment would not be washed away

Captain of the fishing boat throws a wave
My bootleg angel’s coming soon for love we save
Funny how nothing in the bank makes me feel this way
We’re better off today

She brings the beach guns
I collect the shells
She’s got a nose for this business
I love the way she smells
In a young man’s dream love unties every lace
In a desperate dream love wears a stranger’s face
In my dream today love wears no alibis
