  • And when I wake up in the morning
    To feel the daybreak on my face
    There's a blood that's flowin'
    Through the feeling, with a knife
    To open up the sky's veins

    Some things will never change
    They stand there looking backwards
    Half unconscious from the pain

    They may seem rearranged
    In the backwater swirling, there is
    Something that will never change

    And when I should of been gone a long time
    Laughs and says, I find ways
    Just when we're sheltered under paper
    The rockets come at us sideways

    Some things will never change
    They stand there looking backwards
    Half unconscious from the pain

    They may seem rearranged
    In the backwater swirling, there is
    Something that'll never change

    Hey, I'm blind
    Good, fine
    Roll the time
    On whose dime

    And when I wake up in the morning
    To feel the daybreak on my face
    There's a blood that's flowin'
    Through the ceiling, with a knife
    To open up the sky's veins

    Some things will never change
    They stand there looking backwards
    Half unconscious from the pain

    They may seem rearranged
    In the backwater swirling, there is
    Something that'll never change

    Some things will never change
    They stand there looking backwards
    Half unconscious from the pain

    They may seem rearranged
    In the backwater swirling, there is
    Something that'll never change Writer/s: CURTIS MATHEW KIRKWOOD
