  • These are the words
    But not the truth
    God bless them all
    When they speak to you

    But that's all right
    On an empty stage
    Sing out when
    There's no other way

    Come drift the town
    Where secrets lie
    Where friends & neighbors
    Keep drifting by

    But that's all right
    You're here to stay
    Sing out tonight
    The empty page

    I always thought I'd see
    Your name in flashing light
    You did it all for free girl
    And freely ripped the night
    (yr free to fight)

    These are the words
    But not the truth
    God bless them all
    When they speak to you

    But that's all right
    You're here to stay
    Sing out tonight
    The empty page

    Do you remember the time
    When you were new in town
    You smashed yr head in the mirror baby
    And kissed the frozen ground
    (yr ripped up sound) Writer/s: JIM O'ROURKE, KIM GORDON, LEE M. RANALDO, STEVEN JAY SHELLEY, THURSTON JOSEPH MOORE
