It was a real fun funeral, beautifully brutal All the pews were full, standing room only Mom held on to my arm, while we sand "In The Garden" Momma, hold on When I wake up from this wake I'll take a moment to dry my eyes, go back to acting stoic What's been given by every thing taken away? It was a real fun funeral It was a real fun funeral, tragically magical Oh, the bar was full, standing room only Me and my brother, playing pool All the fools on stools immortal "How are you? Me too." When I wake up from this wake I'll take a moment to dry my eyes, go back to acting stoic What's been given by every thing taken away? It was a real fun funeral

I think you need to stop being sure of how the world works now that you’re older Isabelle (there is a hell) Isabelle (there is a hell) this water won’t make me purer and it sure won’t make me any drunker Isabelle (there is a hell) Isabelle (there is a hell) it’s not the ghost of you I’m talking to but to the absence of seeing you in the all the years since I did leave all because I couldn’t believe in a God above and happy home I headed for the catacombs where you said I did belong and would rot forever knowing I was wrong but there is a hell and I went there in those bars where at picture I’d stare of Isabelle (there is a hell) Isabelle (there is a hell) I’d see in those posts that you’ve moved on got another husband whose faith is strong Isabelle (there is a hell) Isabelle (there is a hell) I thought I’d fix myself for you and my testimony I’d tell to all the kids in that neighborhood I wouldn’t change the world but I’d do some good for I while it worked but I dropped the mask they saw that I was slipping fast I broke down to the man I’ve become the man you said you could not love and I know deep down you understand that church was built upon quicksand swallowing all that we give when the search is what’s transformative knowing you, I think you’ll break one day in distance but it ain’t my place and though it’s Christian to forgive you won’t even when I stop livin’

Wedding Porn 02:59
These cufflinks were given to me on Valentine’s Day Came in a box with a pen a card and candle bouquet Given to me by a girl who lived in Boston’s Back Bay Said in her card do you think that I can say that we’re in love? Then I saw her wedding porn it really It really broke my heart it was lying It was lying on the floor in the back of In the back of our closet And I was packing up to leave her and to tell her She’d really let me down. And I saw her top ten choices of wedding gowns. And even when I left her she said it would be okay Said there was still the possibility I’d come back some day So she sits in our old apartment and waits Listens to the television tell her what it is to love. Then I saw her wedding porn it really It really broke my heart it was lying It was lying on the floor in the back of In the back of our closet And I was packing up to leave her and to tell her She’d really let me down. And I saw her top ten choices of wedding gowns. She was rich she was pretty she was in love She was rich she was pretty she was in love She was in love love love love love She was in love love love love love with magazines Then I saw her wedding porn it really It really broke my heart it was lying It was lying on the floor in the back of In the back of our closet And I was packing up to leave her and to tell her She’d really let me down. And I saw her top ten choices of wedding gowns

a comet in a stumbling whirl tries to dust the sun reaching the earth at end of the evening’s last run I see three red birds in flight igniting the sky not knowing about the frost that will be coming on tonight don’t know why nothing ever really stays the hope split open, I keep hearing the sound of that old dream it’s easy to leave all that you don’t want to believe no reason to cry if you can’t try and make the change closer to me than I could ever admit all the lies and greed I guess had to be part of it hang it up and go, don’t keep hanging on so much it’s too bad you know, all you did was never enough we were all born to hurt and all born to keep fucking up don’t know why nothing ever really stays the hope split open, I keep hearing the sound of that old dream it’s easy to leave all that you don’t want to believe no reason to cry if you can’t try and make the change we’re heading nowhere but now going forever when the train flies off the tracks, at least we’ll be in wreck together
