lyrics

The Admitted

I’ve only got so much left to lose
Who’s to say I shouldn’t give it up willingly?
Join the freaks and live out the rest of my days
On the carnival midway

I’m gonna lighten my load
These old limbs don’t give me nothing but pain, anymore
If less really is more
Then there’s no need to be sore about it

Foxes have dens and birds have nests
But if you follow Him
The son of man has no place to rest his head

When the tents come down on the edge of town
And the fairground’s turned to mud
There’s nothing like that rumbling sound
Of the party caravan rolling out

The dust blurs the line
That divides the road and sky
Here no one asks you why
Or what you’ve left behind

Foxes have dens and birds have nests
But if you follow Him
The son of man has no place to rest his head

After awhile
All these little towns start to look the same
And after awhile
It doesn’t really matter what your name is
It doesn’t really matter what day it is
And it doesn’t really matter what the right way is

Still, some stink you just can’t shake
Like the beard on the Cat Man’s face
You’re always gonna reek
Of the beasts you choose to keep
You cling to the crumbs of love, oh,
It really does permeate everything

Foxes have dens and birds have nests
But if you follow Him
The son of man has no place to rest his head

There was a time when I felt at home
In the cradle of your arms
Your pulse slowed to meet my own
And for that moment we were one
But even if our bodies shared some secret intuition
When I searched your eyes I couldn’t find even a hint of recognition
I never felt more alone
I never felt more alone

This ride’s spinning out of control
The operator’s passed out at the console
The gears grind and the brakes whine

But I’ve got nothing left to lose
They can’t take it if you give it up willingly
What’s left when you cut it all away?
Just another freak out on the midway

Foxes have dens and birds have nests
But if you follow Him
The son of man has no place to rest his head

Foxes have dens and birds have nests
But if you follow Him
The son of man has no place to rest his head
