​Old Light

This song is by Every Time I Die.

I'm a great oasis
Yeah I'm a mirage
I'm a beam of old light from a vanquished star and I'll only guide you into the dark
I'm a parasite with a tapeworm
Yeah I got a bulletproof vest
Knowing my bad luck I ain't ever gonna die so the good will never get any rest
Come bail me out of the state I'm in
The drinks I've had are no match for the truth
The crowd down here put its teeth in us
But the cure's more dangerous than the venom is
So we leave it in and do those things that make us forget that we're dying here
Oh but we're dying here
So love the blood while you can
Let it warm your freezing hands
I'm a dog less master
I'm a masterless dog
And when the whip and the tether are put aside forever
I'm and ox that wanders into the swamp
I'm a rattlesnake across a braided rope
I'm the demon on your side of the chalk
If they caught them girls who started them fires
Yeah they'll track me down in the fog
Come bail me out of the state I'm in
The drinks I've had are no match for the truth
The crowd down here put its teeth in us
But the cure's more dangerous than the venom is
So we leave it in and do those things that make us forget
That we're dying here
Oh but we're dying here
So love the blood while you can
Let it warm your freezing hands
You put a hex on me woman
You're a thinner (x2)
And these are nuclear winters
Atomic black winters
I've kept the fire alive because I'm a sinner
I'm a sinner
Come here and let me boil your blood
I'm a train as long as the track
I am concurrently outbound and just now getting back
They struck me up by a rope as tall as the trees
Though I land on my own two feet I still sway in the breeze
