lyrics

From my mining days I can say, people are obsessed with shiny things
It’s scary to see humans act like flies, gather in hoards towards artificial light
I wonder where it comes from, from a beauty that was undone?
Heard a local claim you’re a soiled dove; well you’re the sweetest bird that I know of
I believe, there’s more than one soul for all the wanderers of this world
But I’m not big on guarantees; believe in a little bit of loyalty
Exercise love like a kite, let it fly and hold on tight
The train is coming; the train is coming for us
We’re getting the hell out of Cripple Creek

Your love is a finicky thing,
Like a B52, with a rickety wing
Enough in the tank, to blow this whole thing
I can feel it fly, I can feel it swing

Who’s got some wine, who’s got some wine? Well, pour it! (pour it)
We all make too much noise, all take too much time for bullshit (for bullshit)
From now on there’s only love for me
I’ll be an old man, blowing harp to an ancient breeze
Though I’ve been fooled, it’s the only life I see
The ground never looked so good, or moved so good under my feet
We’re getting the hell out of Cripple Creek

Your love is a finicky thing,
Like a B52, with a rickety wing
Enough in the tank, to blow this whole thing
I can feel the night, I can feel the morning

If we are lucky, our hips could still rock a beat
If I’m an old man, it would not be because of me
If we are to be, these are always dancing feet
Wouldn’t be an old man; it would not be because of me
