lyrics

I am a young man sleeping in the morning waiting for the work to come.
All of my children, crying in the bedroom, waiting for their father to come.
Burn up the hours. Make excuses. I am a dead man's son.
With my eyes closed, it's all just noises. I can't see anyone.

I am a soldier standing in the back line waiting for my brothers to fall.
I'm just a coward hangin' in the corner, dishonorable waste of clothes.
Burn up the hours. Make excuses. I am a dead man's son.
With my eyes closed, it's all just noises. I can't see anyone.

From here, I guess you'll never know, but I can't carry this anymore.
If you hear my words, I need you to know
I won't think about it in the silence.
I won't miss you when I'm all alone.
I won't speak your name, or hear your voice, or see you when my eyes are closed.

I am a liar sitting at the truck stop waiting for the coins to fall...
A bad gambler, an unsuccessful father, fat and old and living alone.
Burn up the hours. Make excuses. I am a dead man's son.
With my eyes closed, it's all just noises. I can't see anyone.

From here, I guess you'll never know, but I can't carry this anymore.
If you hear my words, I need you to know
I won't think about it in the silence.
I won't miss you when I'm all alone.
I won't speak your name, or hear your voice, or see you when my eyes are closed.

You were a husband to widows and their orphans.
You left them with nothing, took the car when they were sleeping.
Well this is me in spite of you.
So when you hear my words, don't stop listening.

From here, I guess you'll never know, but I can't carry this anymore.
If you hear my words, I need you to know
I won't think about it in the silence.
I won't miss you when I'm all alone.
I won't speak your name, or hear your voice, or see you when my eyes are closed.
