Beautiful Disaster

Album: Transistor (1997)
  • Today seems like a good day to burn a bridge or two
    The one with old wood creaking that would burn away right on cue
    I try to be not like that but some people really suck
    Some people need to get the axing chalk it up to bad luck
    I know a drugstore cowgirl so afraid of getting bored
    She's always running from something so many things ignored
    I might do that stuff if it didn't make me feel like shit
    I'm on some old reality tip so many trips in it

    Beautiful disaster
    Flyin' down the street again
    I tried to keep up
    You wore me out and left me ate up
    Now I wish you all the luck
    You're a butterfly in the wind without a care
    A pretty train crash to me and I can't care
    I do I don't whatever

    I know a drugstore cowgirl so afraid of getting bored
    She's always running from something so many things ignored
    I try to be not like this but I thought it'd make a good song
    There's nothing to see shows over people just move along Writer/s: NICHOLAS HEXUM
