lyrics

The skyline like a stale pepsi cola
The western place, the wilds of nowehre
Smoke stacks coughing up clouds
A siren out on the asthma town
She’s in the graveyard getting high
Some old fling with jealous thighs
Cruid oil and cruel lovers
Fools gold for a prairie summer

You can’t fake it for long, You can’t fake it.
The days are rusting like that mustang you keep up on blocks

Cursed in church, prayed for rain
Burning diesel while you wait on trains
Another crop circle mystery
I saw your name in the mercury
Chemical nights and mineral rights
Air dums and chine whites
Playing roulette with a loaded girl
They say that love is a barn on fire

You can’t fake it for long, You can’t fake it.
The days are wasted like the foreman belly up at the bar

I don’t think it was that drink she nursed
It must’ve been that mickey in her purse
Make up smudged like a prison tattoo
They carried her out like Christ on the cross
Every love story is a ghost story
How do we sleepy when our barns are burning?


You can’t fake it for long, You can’t fake it.
Your days are numbered like that beast
Your days are burned out like those kids hanging out behind the mall
