Kiss The Ground (2014)

Written by Achilles Tenderloin

If I ever get off this bus, I’m gonna lay down
I’m gonna lay down and kiss the ground
If I ever get off this bus, I’m gonna lay down
I’m gonna lay down and kiss the ground
‘Cause Old Joe ain’t got a soul
I ain’t got a soul to throw my arms around

Woke up this mornin’ with a suitcase
With a suitcase in my hand
Woke up this mornin’ with a suitcase
I had a suitcase in my hand
Face pressed against the glass
But I couldn’t recognize the land

One night to flatten mountains
And turn white sand to snow
One night to flatten mountains
Oh, and turn white sand to snow
This old, grey beast freights loneliness
She takes it everywhere I go

If I ever get off this bus, I’m gonna lay down
I’m gonna lay down and kiss the ground
If I ever get off this bus, I’m gonna lay down
I’m gonna lay down and kiss the ground
‘Cause Old Joe ain’t got a soul
I ain’t got a soul to throw my arms around

I opened up your letter
Oh, but I could not read the words
I opened up your letter, but I couldn’t
I say, I could not read the words
I saw my best man’s signature
And I just visualized the worst

Wires stretch out before me
Like a wine-dark ocean, rollin’ up and down
Wires stretch out before me
Like a wine-dark ocean, rollin’ up and down
I see ’em when I close my eyes
Feel ’em drag my body out of town

If I ever get off this bus, I’m gonna lay down
I’m gonna lay down and kiss the ground
If I ever get off this bus, I’m gonna lay down
I’m gonna lay down and kiss the ground
‘Cause Old Joe ain’t got a soul
I ain’t got a soul to throw my arms around
