​Walking On Hell's Roof Looking At The Flowers

This song is by Waco Brothers and appears on the album Electric Waco Chair (2000).

History is written by the winner
This is a loser's song
I took this job in the summer
Never saw the winter rollin' on
Never thought it would end in a second
A burned out smoking wreck
Expectations and ambitions
We're just a rope around my neck
Broke my back to earn a crust
Saw my dreams die in the dust
Now I'm walking on hell's roof looking at the flowers

All in bloom, red yellow and blue
So sweet and true, nothing better to do
I'm not hiding come and find me
What am I doing, there's no need to remind me
I'm walking on hell's roof looking at the flowers
In the A to B & the miles per hour
Keeping out of reach of that higher power
Where the bees are buzzing in the April showers

The spoils belong to the victor
This is a consolation song
Your life is science fiction
A flash of light and you'll be gone
No more trials and no more trouble
Bad luck and bursting bubbles
Walking on hell's roof looking at the flowers x2

We're not hiding come and find us
What are we doing there's no need to remind us
Walking on hell's roof... x4
