lyrics

work pants white socks dress shirt and a bolo tie
old men get up at the crack of dawn
deck of cards clipped corners honeymoon at the Sands
I bet you treated someone well when the world was in your hands

It's a little too easy to let you off in a song
it's a chore keeping you around
in this sound, in Spin town

one shirt ironed on letters spelled your name
that's all I took from you to remind me we're the same
lights dim traffics heavy
hot enough to make a bad man die
leaning forward on the dash
a dress shirt and a bolo tie

hate is such a strong word
but somehow not quite enough
to reach your bones deep underground
I dare you to tear them off
