Lyrics


In Jerkwater County, they kill their own food
Walk out on lovers in their father's shoes
And step out of themselves, into the world
Out of themselves, into the world

I fell for you when we raced through the graveyard
We never made it to the other side
You dragged me down into yourself
You dragged me down into yourself 

Well I can't find anyone else but you
Started the game on one thousand
All of her friends just scatter and run
Keep to the game four one thousand
Head to the place where you've always been

Time has spread like prarie fire
It hides behind the sun in our eyes
We're driving all night, never leave town
Driving all night, never leave town

We're strung together like beads on a rosary
You're still hoping that the pearls inside of me
Spill from myself, into your world
Spill from myself, into the world 

Well I don't want anyone else but you
Keep to the game three one thousand 
All of the friends just scatter and run
Stick to the game four one thousand 
Holding up boots to find where it ends

To find where it ends....
