Welles – Codeine lyrics
[Verse 1]
I rode in on a river of codeine
Lost myself, found myself, killed myself
And brought myself to life
I was pullin' heavy loads of sweet dreams
Scrape the ground, find the sound, look around
And nothing's that good

[Chorus]
But now I'm back and it's lovely
Painted in color

[Verse 2]
Bells are tolling 'round, call the hour
There's never time, enough to jive, but we're alive
So let's live while we can
And I gave a silver coin to an orphan
He pawned it off, floated off, jacked it off
Now he's a goddess

[Chorus]
But now I'm back and it's lovely
Painted in color, alright

[Verse 3]
I saw myself outside picking flowers
A brief bouquet, a small array, all in a day
A work done in sunlight
And I miss the boys and girls of my homeland
I know they're there, yes I'm aware that they don't care
But I'm an eagleheart

[Chorus]
But now I'm back and it's lovely
Painted in color
But now I'm back and it's lovely
Painted in color
