Giant Sand – Live To Tell lyrics
Anyone can become a lawyer
If they pass the bar
Incoming swells of soft paranoia
Only lets you dream that far

Marjorie and Lou-Ellen the lost
Were marjonal as well
They've added up and deducted their losses
Earned the rights to kill and tell

Look at you now Mother Martha and Sonya-the-trip
Guard their histories well
They're trading up from Halstons to
Harleys, Chanel to a burning leather smell

Listen up if you can hear me
There ain't no point to dwell
If I still stand where the earth
Tried to swallow, I hope you wait for me to live to tell

Look at you now, all done up and set to dismember
Severe nostalgia and upset to remember
This brilliant mess, this complex entangle
Livin' to tell, livin' to tell, livin' to tell
