He's as simple as a lie
He's as lonesome as the sky
And he drags his heels
As he walks away

Shut down there's nothing left to say
Struck down by indifference and decay
You lie you lie you said you'd never go away.

The books I stole
You read to me
Page after page
The coal stove burning

Last cent spent
Just go away
You can buy yourself another
Ten dollar holiday.

The dreamtime shadows on the wall
Shut down there's nothing left at all
Beneath a sane world's alien sun
The words trip off your tired tongue
Struck down there's nothing left to say
You lie, deny, you said you'd never go away.

He's as simple as a lie
He's as lonesome as the sky
And he drags his heels
As he walks away.
