lyrics

I've seen the world in black and white
But know where the colors have to go
I've traveled on planes and rusty trains
The steamboats on the river
These locals heads weigh down their legs
Heavy and full with junk
I tell em' keep your thoughts to yourself
And let em' be your own

There's been a broken arrow lodged in me
Since I was just a little boy
From people who focus on people
Rather than seeing how the delta reeds bend
They say I'm going down to hell
But the hell with that
Just keep your sins to yourself
And let em' be your own

My little son, he carries on
What we have left of my wife
Perched on a bench like two birds
Counting boats, we talk of her
They say my baby went down to hell
But the hell with them
Just keep your sins to yourself
And let em' be your own

What you feel now, I know that I feel too
From the promises of a life that I once knew
Cause you are a flame off of me
I'm a flame off of you
Cause you are a flame off of me
I'm a flame off of you
You are a flame off of me
I'm a flame off of you
