This was one of the first songs we did that had full instrumentation and more than just acoustic guitars/basic drums. Greg had originally written this song before moving to Texas.
The man, he's so flawed, but writes such pretty songs,
It's a shame when his name's said, it's always said wrong
but as soon as they cheer, he disappears,
tired and gray, he had a scar on his face,
when I asked how he got it, he wiped it away,
and he walked to the stage, with a smile in it's place.
Turn the tables, turn the lights off,
the switches never work,
it only get worse,
Hide your secrets in the holes that,
the weathered walls create,
and pray that they're safe.
The lady in green, she wore her heart on her sleeve,
and whenever you touched it, it started to bleed,
but she swore it ok, it got her through the day.
It stops us from moving backwards,
and getting the honest answers.
