Last Rites

 

Words & Music: Bobby Shiflett

Oh by the way, I saw you down by the roadside
Lost in your ways and surrounded by bones
Were those your friends? 
Does their passing haunt you?
It gets to the end and you find you’re on your own.

Oh by the way, I saw how you were living
Covered in mud and drunk on the blood
Those were your friends.
You could have been more forgiving.
It gets to the end but you never get enough.

The lights were on but still you couldn’t see
The inner meaning of possibility
The lights are on. When will you see?
The inner meaning: In your eyes is one who is free.

Oh by the way, I saw where you were going
You seemed uncertain, lost and alone
In the light of day, the truth is in the knowing
It gets to the end and you find you’re on your own.

The lights were on but still you couldn’t see
The inner meaning of possibility
The lights are on, babe. When will you see?
The inner meaning: In your eyes is one who is free.
