Shakytown

from We Shall Be Monsters by Bryan Dunn

lyrics

Headlights flashing
She drove into a wall again
It happens every now and then
She doesn't stop

I've been waiting
For her to tell me what to do
Baby, it's not me, it's you
Do I look like a cop?

And we're all afraid of what's been going down, down, down
Been going down, down, down
In Shakytown

Someone told her
It's never going to be enough
A little makeup and a lot of luck
And you'll get by

I believe her
The little quiver in her voice
It's never been my drug of choice
But it gets me high

Someday, someday we'll slide into the ocean
Someday, someday we'll slide into the sea
Someday, someday we'll slide into the ocean, the ocean
Someday, someday we'll slide into the sea

So tell the doctor
Tell the lawyer
Tell her father's last employer
I don't need a reason more than her

Headlights flashing
I drove into a wall to see
What it's like to be completely free
I still don't know
