lifeblood: songs: lyrics: big cup of empty


climbing the walls to get
his hands on the ticket
that will let him come inside
so he can join the line
waiting there to see
who will get to drink from
the big cup of empty

she's got all those bills to pay
the biggest ones past due today
she'll believe the tv
telling her she's running free
sitting there on her ass
staring into the glass
of the big cup of empty

the rains have been heavy
(the sidewalk is broken)
the water is high
(down by the rivers edge)
the moon and the winds are both
(they put up a big fence there)
raised by the tide
(i swear that i saw you)
i am so thirsty
(grab a man by the hand)
for something to drink
(grab him and say to him)
i've been kicking hard to float
(i think you do (unknown))
what i needs to sink

((unknown))
(hi)
(excuse me)
(good evening)
((unknown))
((unknown))
((unknown))
((unknown))

i have looked in the big big book
given the farm a second look
i have been to many lands
reached out with my tongue and hands
i have never seen
anything that looked so big
as the big cup of empty
i have never seen
anything that looked so big
as the big cup of empty
i have never seen
anything that looked so big
as the big cup of empty
