lyrics

Sit Down (©2011, Jamie Scott)

I took my brain from my pocket, and I waited for that rocket
to lift off and fly into the sun.
Put my gun on the shelf, away from you and myself,
and lived for dreamin’ of my childhood.

Where all the cowboys were the good guys, and the Indians were savage
It didn’t do much for my sour mood.
Can’t we grow wings from our spines that rip right through our skin
and fly away to find a better place to grow?

sit, sit down
from below
sit down
run, run around
stop go
run around

Maybe an island in the ocean, far from all that commotion.
Always turns into a tidal wave.
Feel like I’m drownin’ in a puddle twice as deep as it should be,
we’ll run around like dogs and think our breath away.
We’ll cook our hearts on a grill and serve ‘em up like meat
to all our friends and dearest family
I know I don’t know what I’m doing, this is thick with ruin.
Is it gettin’ cold or is it just me?

All the way
from home
moss doesn’t grow
on a rolling stone

Stop signs on roads, and fences that grow
all around all the feelings I’ve found.
I know I don’t know what I’m doing, this thick with ruin.
Is it gettin’ cold, or is it just me?

All the way
from home
moss doesn’t grow
on a rolling stone

sit, sit down
from below
sit down
run, run around
stop go
run around
