Born Alone

Album: The Whole Love (2011)

  • I have heard the war and worry of the gospel
    Ferried fast across the void
    I have married broken spoke charging smoke wheels
    Spit and swallowed opioid
    I am the driver at the wheel of the horror
    Marching circles at the gate
    Mine eyes have seen
    The fury so flattered by fate

    Tonight I'd rather count the warm fuse internally
    Subtract the silence of myself
    I would rather choose the middle mind of mystery
    Reverse a riddle for my health
    I'll unwind strange rinds overpowering
    Toss the chimneys in the sea
    I believe I've seen
    The finger divine extremity

    Please come closer to the feather smooth lens fly
    Sadness is my luxury
    Will you weather, join the cold, come before I die
    More aware of it than me
    The valves are blowing stone
    The kids are unabashed
    Loneliness postponed
    Mine eyes deceiving glory
    I was born to die alone
    Alone Writer/s: JEFF TWEEDY, PAT SANSONE
