Transit Blues Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Praise Poison (2:34)
"I heard the sound", the shout proclaimed
Now I'm here to praise poison
It's a Monday let me be mundane
How's there so much to speculate?
I can't stand to carry the weight

Call me “The Sound and the Fury”
Consider me dead and buried
I'm like the city's grime
No time for no crime

Praise poison

They fill your head with the devil and god
You're so bored, but there's a choice
You're screaming without a voice
They fill your head with the devil and god

Call me “The Sound and the Fury”
Consider me dead and buried
I'm like the city's grime
No time for no crime
2. Daughter (2:28)
Over a lifetime
I never loved her
My daughter, my daughter

Seems to be a distorted shift
I'm lost now, I'm lost
In the universal absence
And it is dizzying, dizzying
Pitch black, pitch black
Over a lifetime
I never loved her
My daughter, my daughter

Before there were
Ships sailing under a swollen moon

But enough now, enough
Every memory awakens an agony
But enough now, enough
Every memory awakens an agony

Over a lifetime
I never loved her
My daughter, my daughter
Over a lifetime
I never loved her
My daughter, my daughter

I keep carrying the dead with me
So let us pity them, bury them all at once
I keep carrying the dead with me
So let us pity them, bury them all at once
3. Worldwide (3:28)
From Milwaukee to Memphis, Pittsburgh to Portland, Maine;
I'm a little restless, feeling like a need a change
By way of Brooklyn and up to Boston
I'm disenchanted, considering every option

I'm thinking and thinking
That being around here has me sinking
And while home is always best
My neighborhood in the Midwest

I want to get lost in you, Tokyo
I've got a lot to say to you, Tokyo
It's nostalgic and quiet, but louder than silence
I want to get lost in you, Tokyo

Tokyo

Here's to folks in Michigan, back and forth to Chicago
Along the lake, within the snow

I'm thinking and thinking
That being around here has me sinking
And while home is always best
My neighborhood in the Midwest

I want to get lost in you, Tokyo
I've got a lot to say to you, Tokyo
It's nostalgic and quiet, but louder than silence
I want to get lost in you, Tokyo

I need more nights in Paris, more time in Stockholm
Some days I will be careless trying to feel known
I need more nights in Paris, more time in Stockholm
Some days I will be careless trying to feel known

I want to get lost in you, Tokyo
I've got a lot to say to you, Tokyo
It's nostalgic and quiet, but louder than silence
I want to get lost in you, Tokyo

Tokyo
4. Lock & Load (3:19)
It's hard to name a tragedy when it keeps repeating
It's hard to name a tragedy: constantly defeated

Why can't a child walk down the street?
Slow motion bullets
Another slaughter every week
Slow motion bullets

Mothers, fathers, don't you know the numbers?
Mothers, fathers, don't you know?

Murder speeds out the chamber with fury and vengeance
There's no excuse for it, this senseless violence

That gun is a tragedy, on and on and on
Buy it background check free, on and on and on
Why can't a child walk down the street? On and on
Another slaughter every week. Slow motion bullets

For the love of God, no more lock and load
For the love of God, no more lock and load

For the love of God, no more lock and load
For the love of God, no more
5. Flyover States (3:24)
Across land (across land), across sea (across sea)
We can't count the miles
The days, the weeks, the months, the years
We can't count the miles

Do you know what it's like? How is it when you fall asleep?
Have you ever been in love?
Could you explain to me
Since I keep trying to pretend, but it's better to keep quiet?
Still it goes without saying that I can't help it

Across land (across land), across sea (across sea)
We can't count the miles
The days, the weeks, the months, the years
We can't count the miles now

If you wanted to trade places, exist in different spaces
One would have to erase this
6. Detroit Tapes (2:12)
She left through the door so long ago
If she ever comes back I will never know
Driving south down highways of Ohio

I wanted to stay her gentleman
Her broken soldier
There are vultures that you can't see

She left through the door so long ago
If she ever comes back I will never know
Driving south down highways of Ohio

I've spent decades waiting downtown
And most of my friends are gone now
They drowned at the bottom of the bottle
There are vultures that you can't see
And I'm wondering when they'll feast

She left through the door so long ago
If she ever comes back I will never know
Driving south down highways of Ohio
7. The Condition (4:00)
Every light is red tonight
Every day: a useless fight
Burdened by obligation
This life will be named “The Condition”
Bound beneath the reign of the viper
And with that please cross me out
Let me out of this everlasting ice age

Can't look forward to anything while in this condition
Can't say I'm waiting for a sign
I'm not waiting

The mystery is there is no mystery
Overlooked reason to history
Founded by abandonment: an emptiness defined by silence
Let me be free
Float away like dots in the sun
Let me be free

Can't look forward to anything while in this condition
Can't say I'm waiting for a sign
I'm not waiting
8. To the Key of Evergreen (5:07)
You hang your hand out the car window.
We travel by the roadway's hum.
See the signs pass.
Watch the fields go by.
Every mailbox.
Every streetlight.

Right here with me: exist amongst the wheat.
Amidst the leaves you watch listlessly.
To the key of evergreen, I listen to the whisper.

We'll climb the mountains before we meet the sea.
The rain will stop eventually.
I'll drive slow across black ice
And you'll be safe to rest your eyes.

Soon enough the sun will go down; but it's no bother, I'm not tired.
It's no bother.
I'm not tired. I'm not tired.

We'll climb the mountains before we meet the sea.
The rain will stop eventually.
I'll drive slow across black ice
And you'll be safe to rest your eyes.

We'll climb the mountains before we meet the sea.
The rain will stop eventually.
I'll drive slow across black ice
And you'll be safe to rest your eyes.

My lovely...
My lovely...
You'll be safe to rest your eyes.
9. Submersion (4:13)
The idea is simple, to be underwater
Hold my breath, sink deeper
Say a prayer, sink deeper
You might consider this surrender, but I'm descending:
Constructing a most pleasant ending

I can still see the city, I can still recognize
To remain is to be separated
I can still see the city, to carry on is to be divided
I can still redefine
I've been spending time trying to keep outside of the light
I've been spending time at the bottom

You would not believe how true the salt feels
Oh God, the relief of oceanic sleep

I can still see the city, I can still recognize
To remain is to be separated
I can still see the city, to carry on is to be divided
I can still redefine

The cliché says that it's sink or swim
But that's another lie we've been drowning in
10. Home For Grave Pt. ll (4:03)
By the time she heard the news, the funeral had taken place
But still the sadness transcended across a dozen states

She wished the trees weren't so still
“Oh Anna, my dear!” she could nearly hear him
His words, sincere, the last time they'd spoken

Those moments in Indiana felt like yesterday
And that crash in Atlanta would always resonate

She wished the trees weren't so still
As if the pines could weep with her
“Oh Anna, my dear!” she could nearly hear him
His words, sincere, the last time they'd spoken

In the forests of Oregon her breath grew shallow
The air was fractured in the morning storm
And Anna's world felt hollow

She wished the trees weren't so still
As if the pines could weep with her
“Oh Anna, my dear!” she could nearly hear him
His words, sincere, the last time they'd spoken

Move along now, you're next
This line won't wait for us
Like Ian, soon Anna, we will all fail the test
Move along now, you're next
This line won't wait for us

“Oh Anna, my dear!” she could nearly hear him
His words, sincere, keep us all heartbroken
11. Transit Blues (3:24)
Every morning, wake to the itch
The alarm clock ticks
Make some coffee, check the weather
Do my best to keep it together

(You can't feel the transit blues)
You can't feel the transit blues without losing something you thought was true
(You can't feel the transit blues)
You can't feel the transit blues without losing something you thought was true

Soon it will begin
I can't expect the world to comprehend the fits that I myself can't defend
Every afternoon, avoid traffic, but feel frantic
My composure: a lost love letter
Do my best to keep it together

(You can't feel the transit blues)
You can't feel the transit blues without losing something you thought was true
(You can't feel the transit blues)
You can't feel the transit blues without losing something you thought was true

I can hear the questions now since journalism died somehow
The shout proclaimed: "The poison praised!"
They make my words an unmarked grave

(You can't feel the transit blues)
You can't feel the transit blues without losing something you thought was true
(You can't feel the transit blues)
You can't feel the transit blues without losing something you thought was true

Every evening I'll have a drink, start to feel better
Do my best to keep it together
