Woke Up Hurting

Lyricist:     Composer:

Daybreak comes with a devil's hum
A carcass starts to breathe
And wakes one more time to try and find
A place to count its teeth
And scrub the cuts from yesterday's hot scuffle on the streets

Show me the door, I need somewhere to go

Daylight, woke up hurting
With tarmac to my side
I woke up with dirty knees
Not for the first time
I
woke up hurting
Though I can't quite say why
I
Woke up hurting
Woke up hurting

Slug through the days, sneak between
The houses I have made
And run sacred rivers up my sleeve
Pills by mouth with lemonade
And as the Earth slowed down
They all clock out of the crack of daily grind
I'm in a back backstreet coming down
I went for a beam of light

Show me the door, I need somewhere to go

Midnight, woke up hurting
The tarmac to my side
I woke up with dirty knees
Not for the first time
I
Woke up hurting
Though I can't quite say why
I
Woke up hurting

And if all these southern tales are true
We should pray for abduction
Pray it comes soon
And if all these southern tales are true
Plan for heaven though hell will do
And if all these southern tales are true
Pray for abduction
Pray it comes soon
And if all these southern tales are true
Plan for heaven though hell will do
