In The Clear

Album: Sonic Highways (2014)
  • There are days I might not make it
    There are days I might start brakin'
    When the rain starts coming down as heavy as the air
    You can find me dancing with the spear
    It's in the square god damn I swear

    There are times I feel like givin' in
    There are times I begin to begin again
    Look outside the world keeps spinning like a paddle wheel
    Rolling for the broken hearted waiting on the heel

    You know I'm not in the clear
    You are not in the clear
    Don't you go count me out now dear

    You know I'm not in the clear
    You are not in the clear
    Don't you go count me out now dear

    In the clear

    There are places I don't remember
    There are faces I don't remember
    How could I forget you painted stars into the sky
    Coming like a reaper marching in the second life

    You know I'm not in the clear
    You are not in the clear
    Don't you go count me out now dear

    You know I'm not in the clear
    You are not in the clear
    Don't you go count me out now dear

    In the clear

    And if I should drown
    May this be the sound
    To wash me out!

    You know I'm not in the clear
    You are not in the clear
    Don't you go count me out now dear

    You know I'm not in the clear
    You are not in the clear
    Don't you go count me out now dear

    In the clear
