Into God Knows What (rejoinder) (Mallonee Bill)

Take the edge off of the dark days Blunt doubts cruel knife blade Steal the sting out of the grave At that last shovelful of earth I swear i've never heard a louder curse Than before they put those digging those away Chorus: Let me go down easy...when the box gets shut Let me go down easy...into god knows what Well, you know i read the book and i heard the angels sing Heard a few sermons on the road from "a" to "b." You vanished into thin air swept out of this room All the good ones leave the party way too soon Now, i won't need the drink and i won't miss the pills But, if i could take your locket picture with me? Now, there's a cure for what ills So i'm heading for the neon with this girl who caught my eye And her smile means more at midnight though i could not tell you why
