trevor hall – liquor store lyrics


i went down to the liquor store
and bought some more liquor
i drank myself to sleep in a starry night
hoping that i would drown
in all the ocean’s sound
i swam into it’s depths with my eyes closed tight
hoping i would see the light

well i built a fire with both my hands
and watched it burn the land
i planted seeds in ashes
just to see if it would grown again
took a train to outer sp-ce
to see if i could find a place
where i could watch the sweet sun burn the scars off my face
hoping i would see the light

well the rain came down without a sound
and flowers sprouted from the ground
how can i not speak of god when all i see is this mirage
we pick up guns and we kill our own
oh this road leads so far from home
i pray to the angel of fire
to burn this mess until it dies
at the top of the hill
at the feet of the tree
i found the truth in an apple seed
who would’ve known
that when it had grown
i could see all the stars and all the cosmos
some say i’m sick and some call me mad
they say i’ve lost all that i’ve had
true i am mad for the light, for the spark
that resides in the deepest depths of my heart
