lyrics

The wood fire it warms me from the outside in
The whiskey it warms me from the inside out
But there’s a sheet of ice inside that’s paper thin
All the years, all the booze and beer
Has never yet thawed out.

Lord have mercy on my lonely
Lonely crowded soul, bursting to be full
On my bursting soul, breaking to be whole

I’ve got a burning lust to take offense
I’ve got come backs to insults I have not received
Have not come from the ones that I love
But I win each time with a killing line
Against a foe who is not there.

I’m cursed to be a brand new man every day
Forgetting what I might have learned from my mistakes
And the demons that fill me have their own highway
Up from the ground
Going up and down
And all around my brain.
