"Live It Down" lyrics - LAGWAGON

"Live It Down"

The planer's lost and all I need
To line my bed with handkerchiefs
To bay my fatigue to build a case
Of true love lost and lives erased
To live guilt free in a foretold destiny
He found a hill where he stakes his claim
And he'll build a house where he'll
Martyr his children

The trees wheeze out the ocean rise
He's gaining ground in his high-rise
And all proceeds from rewritten history
In fairytales that he still believes

He breathes and thrives and he's immunized
But he's paralyzed 'cause he's sure to die off

Soon running for the middle higher ground but lower
While all the coasts are running off

Cold waters boils mother earth's rage
His house and family have washed away
Where was his savior his promised
Road he followed every rule they ever sold
He saw his world as a vapor life support
We colonize and we multiply as we
Suck it dry yeah we're sure to die off

Live it down live it down livid
Live it down
