Lyrics

Lay back, lay back, go to sleep my man Wipe the blood from you face and your hands Forgive yourself if you think you can Go to sleep, go to sleep my man Twenty-one days lost at sea I fought For twenty-two years, non-stop I talked Through the desert, piss drunk, and confused I walked I spit a tooth in the palm of my hand Lay back, lay back, go to sleep my man Wipe the blood from you face and your hands Forgive yourself if you think you can Go to sleep, go to sleep my man The wind and the trees are ganging up on me They sing my funeral song in harmony I just wanna walk home unaccompanied But they keep singing, singing They keep singing, and singing They keep singing, and singing to me... La, la, la, la, la, la (Singing to me) La, la, la, la, la, la (I hear'em singin") La, la, la, la, la, la Well I wish things were different, true, and deep But everything that's so shallow is everything about me You know they told me I could just take my money and leave I hope the people on the ground will understand I hope the people in the crowd will understand Lay back, lay back, go to sleep my man Wipe the blood from your face and your hands Forgive yourself if you think that you can Go to sleep, go to sleep my man
