Dark And Dirty Mile - Lyrics

I refuse to spend the rest of my days trying to get away
from all the things I did when I knew not what I had done
O so young and tired and love was not an item
my own bottle always refused to hear
them tell me not to stare into the sun

This pornographic place told me a body was to be feared
and then wanted at the same time
man, if you could figure how
Feared because it was the pathway to the mortal sin
and then wanted because we'll all be dust a
few short years from now.

It's a broken hearted world that we inherit
All we're told to do is sin and bear it
For a little while,
On the dark and dirty mile.

It took awhile at least for me
to live enough until I believed
In none of what I heard and less than half of what I saw
Mark the days have come and gone
some were lost and some were wrong
on the way back home we'll figure out a place to place it all

It's a broken hearted world that we inherit
All we're told is to do sin and bear it
For a little while,
On this dark and dirty mile
We're all family here on trial
On the dark and dirty mile

Finally I realized
That knowledge better make you wise
Or all the knots you learned to tie will leave you in a ball
Helpless as when we were born
threaded bare and holy worn
out shivering as summer gives way to early fall

It's a broken hearted world that we inherit
All we're told is to do sin and bear it
For a little while,
On the dark and dirty mile
We're all family here on trial
On the dark and dirty mile
