blood on your hands


When you are struggling
and covered in wax
look to the sun
‘cause it melts you out.
It helps you out
each time you call.

When all your pleasures
leave blood on your hands
Don’t even try
‘cause it won’t wash off.
No it won’t come off
until it’s time.

That’s good advice.

When all your choices
are bottles of wine
You’re tasting them all
until you can’t stand up.
You’ve got to sober up.

When all of a sudden
the wind’s at your back
Don’t second guess
how it all works out.
It’ll all work out,
always, for you.

We’ve got a long way to go,
walking through walls and bolted doors.
It’s all around, it’s on the floor.
We’re on our way.

That’s good advice.
