  • No one knows where the ladder goes
    You're gonna lose what you love the most
    You're not alone in anything
    You're not unique in dying
    I feel a strange every now and then
    Fall asleep reading science fiction
    I wanna fly in your silver ship, but
    My momma hang and my sister, sit
    Its on now, the days are long now
    The ups and the sun down
    In the twisting morn
    If I gotta go first
    I'll do it on my terms
    I'm tired of traitors
    Always changing sides
    They were friends of mine

    Don't hang around as the promise breaks
    Or you'll be there when I'm the next one's made
    Kiss the feet of a sarlatan
    Some imagine freedom
    All the rest is predictable
    Trying your hardest to melt the snow
    Tie the knots to concentrate
    Keep on pulling that rope will break

    We'll welcome the new age
    Covered in war paint
    Lights from the jungle till dusk sky
    See now the stars burst
    Looks just like a blood orange
    Don't it just make you wanna cry
    Precious friend of mine

    Will I know when it's finally time
    This whole life of hallucination
    You're not alone in anything
    You're not alone in trying to be Writer/s: CONOR M OBERST
