lyrics

The Names of Things

You had a plan
And your plan was just to run
Simple as it seems
Turns out you’re the lucky one

While I circle around
I can’t land nowhere
I can’t bear to touch ground
But I can’t breathe in this air

Once the song and what you sang were still the same
And the words still stood by what they named
And the rain still called itself the rain

You burn the library down
And ride off into the sun
Leave it all behind
Just your horse and favorite gun

While I watch from the woods
I wonder what I would have saved
It don’t do no good
Better learn to love the flames

Once the song and what you sang were still the same
And the words still stood by what they named
And the rain still called itself the rain
