I just found me a bottle of blues 
Some strange comfort for a soul to soothe 
Ain't it hard 
Ain't it hard, 
To want somebody who doesn't want you 

And I've been waiting for a year, a day 
Some strange weather must be blowin' my way 
Cause I got no mind to go or to stay, 
Or be left behind 

Holdin' hands with an impotent dream 
In a brothel of fake energy 
Put a nickel in the graveyard machine 
I get higher and lower 
I get higher and lower 
Like a tired soldier 
With nothin' to shoot 
And nowhere to lose 
This bottle of blues 

Egos drone 
And pose alone 
Like black balloons 
All banged and blown 
On a backwoods river 
The infidels shiver 
In the stench of belief 
I tell my momma I'm a hundred years late 
I'm over the rails 
And out of the race 
And the crippled psalms 
Of an age that won't thaw 
Are ringing in my ears 

Holdin' hands with an impotent dream 
In a brothel of fake energy 
Put a nickel in the graveyard machine 
I get higher and lower 
I get higher and lower 
Like a tired soldier 
With nothin' to shoot 
And nowhere dreams it's a.. 
Bottle of blues 

I just found me a bottle of blues 
Some strange comfort for a soul to soothe 
Ain't it hard, ain't it hard, 
To want somebody who doesn't want you 

Holdin' hands with an impotent dream 
In a brothel of fake energy 
Put a nickel in the graveyard machine 
I get higher and lower 
I get higher and lower 
Like a tired soldier 
With nothin' to shoot 
And nowhere dreams it's a... 
Bottle of blues 
Bottle of blues
