Lyrics

Impala - 1998 Happy Go Lucky

Gambling Song(an ace unable to change)
tonight i am gambling with my sentiment
tonight i am gambling with my repentance
deny i am losing in a crowded room
to a gambler in a crown of thorns
tonight i am down to my soul(x4)
tonight i am gambling with my sentiment
tongiht i am gambling with my salvation
deny i am losing in a crowded room
to a gambler in a crown of thorns
tonight i am damned to my soul(x4)

Bath(a humble cause again)
so here's your bath tub, christmas lights
add the water: seven pints
face down in silver, white christmas light
wednesday i found you,
your hair was white as a kite string
so here's your story, as you would have said it
leave out the sad parts
as bright eyes fill with novacaine
and chandeliers with fire flies
you won't know(x2)
i'm not sure

45 Degrees(easts heart divided)
sleeping war time 45 degrees
she tells me it's 45 indeed
can i play with your mane
sleeping wartime 45 degrees
sleeping wartime 45 indeed
she tells me it's 45 degrees
can i play with your mane
sleeping wartime 45 degrees

Spaniel(the rules of absence)
and the spaniel's down among
the old blue tick
read about how the sherriff's down among
the old blue tick
and i can't say who you are
with your new running boards
and the spaniel's down among
the old black ear
read about how the Spainard's down among
the old black hair
and i can't say who you are
with your new running boards
and i can't say who you are,
goodnight city boys

TRANS AM(this time anything finite at all)
Have you been adventuring
From your native grieving
I elect its conquered
She elects its conquered
These paths to exit
These paths rise often
They are a lie
They are against you
We all should have ruin
Ruin so swift
When it's eager its treason
with no conscience
When it's love (2x)

All Friends Leave You (just what can last)
all friends will leave you(x3)
leavin' will bring ya down and
leavin' will tear ya down and
leavin' will wear you down and
leavin' will bring you down
all your friends have left you(x3)
leavin' will bring ya down and
leavin' will wear ya down and
leavin' will bring ya down(x3)
leavin' will tear you down and
leavin' will bring you down

Revellie(frontier hounds or hearts newly arrived)
revellie
at dawn were sharpshooters sleeping
brings our truce this moment to an ending
the frontier hounds become partner
to the loss we've arranged
they'll be no rust on the gates of heaven
a low light shines on me
two spies, i lie between
she's the red one, yeah(x2)
revellie
at dawn were sharpshooters sleeping
brings our truce this moment to an ending
the frontier hounds become partners
of the loss we've arranged
there will be no rust on the gates of heaven
low light you will have light bulb eyes
and nerves of string
and paper tombs to lie between(x5)

Angel Anthem(program:the mask)
where the blue of the night
meets the gold light of day
i know someone(x2) waits for me
faithless sinners dry your tears(x2)
and your lamentations
when the angels of the lord smile upon you
they'll be bringing your salvation
where the blue of the night
meets the gold light of day
i know someone(x2) waits who waits for me.

Travel(till morning reputations)
the hangman's water is often sweeter
on these western roads
know the heat of their travelers
that go down(go down)
and backs know the saddles
and boots know the heels
my eyes know the blinder is black(x2)
mouth knows the bit and the brassy taste of it
it's more than my companion should allow(x2)
right now(x2)
there's nothing my equal, right now(x3)

The Eagle(structuring: necessity)
deny the eagle the right to be weary
though she bears your nation a breast
thrush cries, thrush here
the cardnial mistrusts me
divides the grey sky with fire roads to ride
hey, with fire roads to ride(x2)
come the son again to my singing
they never thought of
the power they'd be bringing
helpmates e'er they
the boy and the son
hey, the boy and the son
thrush cries, thrush here
oh the cardinal mistrusts me
divide the grey sky with fire roads to ride(x2)

Anchors(one of those uncertain hands)
we're close, the lamps are burning blood
on the chance that we'll survive
to need such a desperate light
my bones shall rise up muskettes
my feet are at the threshold
and disaster warms our soil(x2)
so left with sleighting hands
the boats they've pawned for stranding
we will drown them like their anchors(x2)
my bones shall rise up anchors
my feet are at the threshold
and disaster warms our sails

Sept. 17 (separartions:reminder)
oh to find you this autumn
autumn strays into evening
now is Sept. 17
and i should have know(x2)
you'll pardon me if i don't beleive
what a fine day to believe(x2)
what if i don't believe
never thought they could find me and
i never thought they would find me here
unlucky days unlucky strays
did i say unlucky
i just meant unhappy
i should have know and
i should have know
if you'll pardon me if i don't beleive
what a fine day to believe(x2)
what if i don't believe

Ours The Armada
two ships ride close, too close
and she's going to her last long home
to see her now plainly and
i should know her among the thousand and one
none have thee better
although knowing half the battles
and the path of the lantern
oh, the bells ringing their full breath alarm
my own one waiting
till winter denies me my sails(x2)
