Nathaniel Rateliff Nothing To Show For

One single out of ten

Seen better odds in them

But it’s not that bad

Well me

I was digging with my crutch

I stand in my own rut

That I wrote down

While you

You just sit and stare

It’s not pealing it’s a tear

And it’s distance and it’s where

It’s getting under my skin

But a wave

Could carry you away

Or leave you somewhere else

Or leave you in the flames

So let the dirges ring

I’ll be there to burn with you

We’re all broke down

We’re all well hid

We’re all just kids

Despite our age

Look

You see this broken hand

Oh it’s just another limb

Well not to me

And you

Don’t listen you just talk

Well leave me in the dark

I don’t wanna know

Now a wave

Could carry you away

Or leave you somewhere else

Or leave you in the flames

So let the dirges ring

I’ll be there to burn with you

They don’t call my name anymore

They don’t wrap themselves in a song in the night

They don’t call us all that we are

After all, we got nothing to show for

After all, we got nothing to show for

After all, we got nothing to show for
