If anyone rises at 6:31 And fakes all day that they're having their fun They never did get it right Since they got it so low. To anyone drinking the morning away The afternoon will prove a mistake They never will get it right Now they've got it so low. [Chorus] And we laugh and we drink, And we teach ourselves not to think. We never did get it right Since we got it so low. To all of the faces that freeze for you there In your memory when you try not to care They never disappear down the slow road For all of those people who bleed by the side And split from their tongues And sharpen their knives. They never will get a life Now they've got it so low [Chorus] Cornfields and pig-tails and fish in the stream The night when the boys stole the billion dollar dream From the high-jinx school for girls Down the road. Stories are smoke trails And some may be true. You're listening to me But I'm talking to you. I hope you never fall from grace If you get it so low. [Chorus] And we laugh and we drink And we find it hard not to think. We never did get it right Since we got it so low.
