Music & LyricsEdit

When the kingdom comes he puts his records on and with his blistered thumb hits play

Now with the volume up he goes and fills his cup and lets the drummers drum take away

The pain

The pain

Breaking

Forsaken

What’s that you’re taken

Believing the feeling

He lets the records play

Should future dim

The cigarette light’s in

The vaporizer green light grim

And when the shot glass talks he goes to listens up

Until he’s nice and numb again

Again

Shaken

The breaking

Not one for faking

The reeling is healing

He lets the records play

There’s wisdom in his ways

I’ve been down and I fell so hard and far from grace

I’ve been hurt and I still recall the flaws on her face

I’ve been off but I'm on up upon my feet

my feet again

Shaken

Forsaken

What’s that you’re taking

The weeding

The feeling

He lets the records play

Shaken

But breaking

Not one for faking

The reeling is healing

He lets the records play


There’s wisdom in his ways
