lyrics

Pulled into town on a ship of fools
I knew the captain and some of the crew
Real nice people, not a thing to lose

Fractured bones and broke down vans
There's been yet another drastic change in plans
I quit the farm and I sold the band

Everybody's got an angle
Now the corners are blocking the sky

Been so low for so long
It's about time I got high

Horace said, "you gotta seize the day"
But they all seize me and sneak away
Poets and lawyers still pull the strings

The best of us are drawn to sin
Must be the righteous folks to blame for the shape we're in
Let's all double down and go around again

Everybody's got a story
For why they're selling me their alibi

Been so low for so long
It's about time I got high

Got so many bridges yet to burn
I'll be buying matches with my very last dime

I've been so low for so long
It's about time I got high
