Blood Veins

lyrics

see the redhead woman with her only daughter
see the lonely son with his only father
well they ride on down to the edge of town
where the raindrops feel like holy water

no electric bill and the kids ain't crying
and you don't get sick and your friends ain't dying
and the sunset sings with the colors it brings
you don't feel like taking pictures but you're trying

and jesus ain't the only friend you never had
no padre saying everything you've done is bad
when death does come and the night's so young
you'll be safe at home not alone in a cold bath

and your words ain't lost in the lion's mane
in your nostrils ain't the remnants of your cocaine
when you look at your woman and you kiss her she won't taste
all the liquor that's been swimming in your blood veins

see the redhead woman with her only daughter
see the lonely son with his only father
well they ride on down to the edge of town
where the raindrops feel like holy water
