lyrics

You took everything with no regret
Broken bones and a lit cigarette
I am eating copper coins for dinner
In the hopes to make me thinner
So when I see my mother she can look me in the eye


And when the time comes upon us
and lord looks down in disgust
Well I count the grains of sands
If that's what it takes to be a man
Then don't bother me.


You say I’m your one & only
A kind word & a serpines smile
I went and gonna and trade my soul
To get you all those rings of gold
But it's never enough


I’m going home to Georgia
I’m going home where you can’t find me


Please stop laughing in my face
Itchy palms and severed straws
I didn't want have to do it
But you brought me down to it

And when The time comes upon us
and lord looks down in disgust
Well I count the grains of sands
If that's what it takes to be a man
Then don't bother me.


Oh these hands will never be clean again
Broken bottles all remain
But there is one thing before I go my dear
I Don’t Care
