Down So Long

Sun sets’cross the ocean,I’m a thousand miles from anywhere
My pocketbook and my heart both just got stolen
And the sun act like she don’t even care
The wind blows cold when you reach the top
it feels like someone’s face is stuck to the bottom of my shoe
I got a plastic jesus
a cordless telephone for every corner of my room
Got everybody but you telling me what to do


But’ve been down so long, oh it can’t be longer still
I’ve (we’ve) been down so long
(the end must be…I know the end must be…)
that the end must be drawing near

I look to everybody but me to answer my prayers
’till I saw an angel in the bathroom
who said she saw no one, worth saving anywhere
and a blind man o the corner said
it’s simple, like flipping a coin
don’t matter what a said it lands on of it’s someone else’s dime

I take a trip,catch a train,
I catch a plane, I got a ticket in my hand
And then a man takes my money, and I like cattle we all stand
