Ain't No Life

This song is by Pilot Speed and appears on the album Wooden Bones (2009).

I ask you to leave here tonight, you knew it was planned
When the world takes your heart from the fight
You do what you can, you're living here lost in this land
So brother, don't force my hand
Please let's see the forest for the trees
'Cause it's time to rise up, it's time to rise up from your knees

This ain't no life for us, my brother, this ain't no life for us
You're blind to all the colors of the life you could discover

This house feels cold, abandoned and quiet
A son needs a warm hand to hold and a home that's kind
Father who will stand in the light, I won't watch you die inside
For a love that was lost in the mire
But it's time rise up, it's time to rise up from the fire

This ain't no life for us, my brother, this ain't no life for us, my brother
This ain't no life for us, my brother, this ain't no life for us
You're blind to all the colors of the life you could discover

The depth you've found, is a trick of the mind
Is there hope for the man whose life has let him down
There's a lot of those ghosts in this town
I've seen it drag good men down
So free up the shame in your pain
And let it rise up, let it rise up from the flame

This ain't no life for us, my brother, this ain't no life for us, my brother
This ain't no life for us, my brother, this ain't no life for us
You're blind to all the colors of the life you could discover
