Just From Chevron

Album: Swing Lo Magellan (2012)
  • Where she collapses into the shore
    Pump the byproduct and ask her for more
    There a man lay dying in ice
    Gasket hair busted out
    Pinned down like a vice
    As the sun sank into repose,
    A friend knelt down
    Listened into his dying words as he froze.

    Tell my love don't mourn too intense
    I'm going down to her great good expense
    Now all the air is quiet and still
    Wish I was back home on the [nell?] of the hill

    Don't think I won't try
    When I close my eyes
    Whatever the people will drive
    I swear I will survive
    All of my friends my enemies too
    Live in the shadows of the dirtiest few
    Burns the land and it's paper to ruin
    While winds always whistling an infinite tune

    Don't think I wont try
    When I close my eyes
    Whatever the people will drive
    I swear I will be alive
    Don't think I won't try
    When I close my eyes
    Whatever the people will drive

    I swear I will be alive
    I swear I will be alive
    I swear I will be alive
    I swear I will be alive
    I swear I will be alive

    Now "So long," he whispered softly
    Closing his eyelids with his face turning grey.

    When the workers cleaned up the spill
    Sent the man home to his nell in the hill. Writer/s: David Donnell Longstreth
