Mud On Mud


There was nothing on the line until the sun refused to shine
It's been with us all this time
Now it decided not to shine
'I'm so tired of your lies. Try this darkness on for size.'
Like the siren says you'd better fight the fire

Caught my breath and lost my step
I came face to face with Mud
Says I to Mud, 'I had you pegged. I thought you'd be more black than red'
Mud just smiled and turned around.
'Well, I ain't Mud I'm Blood'

Bridge: There used to be some bridges, boys
Now I smell something burning
Iíd like to cross on back again
Rocks on rocks/ Dust on dust
Days on days/ Mud on mud
You rest here in my arms

Penciled in for three fifteen
I came face to face with Days
Says I to Days, 'You seem well worn. You remind me of a thousand tears.'
Days licked his thumb and turned the page.
'Well, I ain't Days I'm Years.'

As easy as the county line
I met my match with Rocks
Says I to Rocks, 'You cut me down.'
You're sharper than an ax,' I said
Rocks shot back,
'Well just relax. 'Cuz I ain't Rocks I'm Glass.
You rest here in my arms'

Chorus: There was nothing on the line until the sun refused to shine..

Doorbell woke me up at dawn.
A delivery from Death
Says I to Death, 'Well, have a seat. I thought you'd be more salt than sweet'
Death just crossed his leg and yawned.
'I ain't here, I'm gone.
You rest here in my arms'

Bridge: There used to be some bridges, boys

Chorus: There was nothing on the line until the sun refused to shine..
Like the siren says you'd better fight the fire

You rest here in my arms
