Nowhere going somewhere

A sink of dirty dishes
Empty bottles on the floor
Fly strips black with corpses
And a broken down screen door

Glasses, full and empty
cigarettes drowned in stale beer
I look around, then I wonder
How the hell did I get here?

I’m Somewhere going nowhere
Or that’s the way it seems
A place  you couldn’t make up in your dreams
I’m somewhere going nowhere
At least that’s how it seems
I’m in a place you couldn’t make up in your dreams

Tobacco in the sunshine
Corn reaching for the sky
Vices grown of beauty
You couldn’t write this if you tried

I’m hooked on beauty’s evil
I live on the dark side
I’ve the devil in the sidecar
And this is how I ride

I’m Somewhere going nowhere
Or that’s the way it seems
A place  you couldn’t make up in your dreams
I’m somewhere going nowhere
At least that’s how it seems
I’m in a place you couldn’t make up in your dreams

I look into the future
And I just see the past
The tunnel now is narrow
The time just goes so fast

My yesterday’s are many
Too many to be sure
Ten thousand pounds of ashes
Dropped and stamped into the floor

I’m Somewhere going nowhere
Or that’s the way it seems
A place  you couldn’t make up in your dreams
I’m somewhere going nowhere
At least that’s how it seems
I’m in a place you couldn’t make up in your dreams

I’m Somewhere going nowhere
but, hell it could be worse
I think nowhere going somewhere
could be worse
yeah, maybe
Nowhere going somewhere could be worse
