Neil Young – Fuckin' Up lyrics

Mindless drifter on the road
Carry such an easy load
It's how you look,
And how you feel
You must have
A heart of steel.

Why do I keep fuckin' up?

I can see you on a hill
Comatose but walking still
Curves beneath
Your flowing gown
Only I could
Bring you down.

Why do I keep fuckin' up?

Dogs that lick
And dogs that bite
Hounds that howl
Through the night
Broken leashes
Are all over the floor
Keys left hanging
In a swinging door.

Why do I keep fuckin' up?

Keep fuckin' up!
