Red Blood

I don’t care that this ain’t going anywhere
I don’t know where I was going anyway
And I don’t mind that I don’t know what I might find
Keep on walking right past all the signs along the way
With my head turned

Thanks a lot I’m feeling fine
I’ll stop and talk another time
In a more conversational frame of mind
I don’t want to learn

You don’t give a shit that there just ain’t no point to it
Win some, lose some, sit some out, it’s all the same
You can’t sleep because you’re too far gone and you’re in too deep
Keep on playing even though you know it’s a loser’s game
With your head turned into the flames

Hey it’s nice to see you too
Doing fine and how are you?
Smile and nod and wait for the tides to turn
I don’t want to learn

I don’t want to learn how fires burn
how the flames come up and the house goes down
just ash and cinder and hallowed ground
Oh no I don’t want to know
how it hurts to cut yourself (no shit)
and you best put some sort of ointment on it
But what if it just won’t stop bleeding?
And what if the flames keep on feeding?
Keep burning underground
Keep gushing out icky and sticky red blood

I don’t care that this ain’t going anywhere
I don’t know where I was going anyway
And I don’t mind that I don’t know what I might find
Keep on walking right past all the signs along the way

Hey it’s nice to see you too
Doing fine and how are you?
Smile and nod and wait for time to turn
I don’t want to learn
God why the fuck are we still alive?
What’s with all this survival jive?
Win some, lose some, sit some out, it’s all the same
I don’t wanna play
And nothings changed
Or ain’t that right?
