if you've ever
failed to set the room on fire
lend me your ears,
'cause I've had twenty-seven years
of kicking cans down the road,
digging holes and fitting moulds

tonight I feel like breaking habits kept for years

I'm into the dig,
you're off like a finch
we'll meet on the level
often it is said
off the top of my head
advocating the devil

if you've ever helplessly tried
make it the last time you took the hard line

if you ever
swap your hat it'll be alright
the one that fits
won't always come in black and white
dug a hole 'cause you couldn't wait
put another one on the slate

tonight I feel like it could never be too late

all of that bait
dressed up like bait
needn't wait
any more
