Learning How To Cheat

This song is by The Balancing Act and appears on the album Curtains (1988).

Words by Steve Wagner. Music by Steve Wagner, Willie Aron and Robert Blackmon.

I'm learning how to cheat death, I just live like I'm dead
I feel like a newspaper nobody had read
I think of things I used to understand

All the flowers turn black at night
And the moonshine's in my mouth
Heat like a longsome gravestone if there's any doubt
I think of things I used to understand

The roads converge and then they scatter
It's hard to see how some things matter
Is there a lot that you would rather not know?

I'm a tour guide on the beaten path
Let me show you around
Everything is easy, here let me help you down
No one will over wonder where you went

Everywhere the ruins are in disrepair
But unless somebody told you
You'd never know they were there
No one will ever wonder where they went

The roads converge and then they scatter
It's hard to see how some things matter
Is there a lot that you would rather not know?
