​Runners Dial Zero

This song is by Beck and appears on the EP Cold Brains (1999).

By the dried up stream
We slit our throats and dreamed
When the building's burned
Was there some concern
Mother laid in bed
What was it she said?

Gather all your worldly jewels
And scatter them like fools
Don't you make a fuss
Days so perilous
When day is done we'll ride
Who cares what we find

Another misspent night
We thought we got it right
The driver lost a wheel
The ice turned into steel
They shivered like refugees
Way down on our knees

By the dried up stream
We slit our throats and dreamed
When the building's burned
Was there some concerned
Mother laid in bed
What was it she said?
