Brimstone Suckers

lyrics

drinkin’ bad juice at the christ­blood revival
set their minds singin’ on a hymn from the bible
got all the way here without my help
now they keep drummin’ up the sin from beneath my belt
oh you, all you brimstone suckers
i don’t know which way to turn
i ain’t got much time to burn
baby they don’t speak the truth
and they don’t care what it does to you
they’ll try to cut you down to their size with some lies
and in the morning leave you cold and bleeding in the street
then they’ll wonder how you ever got so mean
so i’m drivin’ down the road with a drunk alligator
running from the law and the hate that i gave her
watch me disappear behind a blistering sun,
tell me god won’t forgive me for raising a son?
oh you, all you brimstone suckers
i don’t know which way to turn
i ain’t got much time to burn
baby they don’t speak the truth
and they don’t care what it does to you
they’ll try to cut you down to their size with some lies
and they’ll be tryin’ hard to guess how we ever kept our pretty hands clean
i’ve got to get away from this scene
and start runnin’ down my dream
away from everybody acting like teens
and the hungover fluorescent routine
and the trigger happy internet queens
all trapped in basements like sardines
staring at their glowing screens
who’ve never heard of steve mcqueen
they’re as pathetic as i’m obscene
