Us (Bonar Haley)

Dusty vents lie on the floors near the footsteps Your daddy came and left He bought you a safety gun And when you won the rodeo He bought you a safety pin So you could hold it all in So you could hold it all in The sun is wearing out your eyes They look across the land But they can't tell sea from sand Now who will hold your hand? And who will rub your back? Your chains run deep Your chains run deep But I been waitin for your word Been hoping that the earth won't suddenly catch fire Calling on the dirty liars They can deal with us They can deal with us They can deal with us The smoke will always clear But the air will always taste Like you cigarettes and place Time's got me by the neck I'm standing by your stone The words are meaningless They go forever And now, I'm walking through the room You used to stamp your feet You used to call my shame Well, you won't go down in flames It's a tuckered way to think You had your father's eyes You had your father's eyes You had your father's eyes And I been waiting for your word Been hoping that the earth won't suddenly catch fire Calling on the dirty liars They can deal with us They can deal with us They can deal with us
