HAGGIS LYRICS


LAND OF THE LOST

NO MONEY AND RENT IS LATE
YOUR LANDLORD TELLS YOU TO VACATE
NOWHERE TO GO, WHAT WILL YOU DO

ON YOUR OWN, ALL ALONE
WITH NO PLACE TO CALL HOME
NEVER THOUGHT IT WOULD HAPPEN TO YOU

CHORUS:
AMERICA: LAND OF THE FREE
IF YOUíVE GOT MONEY
AMERICA: LAND OF THE LOST
FOR THOSE WHO CANíT BEAR THE COST

IN THE DARK, IN THE COLD
LEGS TIRED, ABOUT TO FOLD
NEED SOMEWHERE TO SLEEP TONIGHT

IT GETS COLDER AND YOU GET NUMB
STILL HOPING THAT THE DAY WILL COME
THAT YOU CAN GET OUT OF THIS PLIGHT

CH:

THERE ARE PEOPLE ON THE STREET
BEGGING FOR FOOD TO EAT
OR A PLACE TO SPEND THE NIGHT

MORE PEOPLE HOMELESS EVERYDAY
CUZ OF RENT THEY JUST CANíT PAY
DESTITUTE WITH NO HELP IN SIGHT



BITTER

YOU KNOW YOU WERE SO LONELY
BUT YOU WERE THE ONE AND ONLY
TO HER YOUíRE JUST A GOOD FRIEND
TO HER YOUíRE JUST A GOOD FRIEND

YOU KNOW IT FILLS HER WITH SORROW
ITíS THE BITTER PILL YOU SWALLOW
SHEíS GOT A DATE TONIGHT
SHEíS HANGING WITH MR. RIGHT

CHORUS
YOU KEEP ON DRINKING x 3
YOU KEEP ON DYING x 3
YOU KEEP ON LOSING x 3
YOU KEEP ON LYING
ONLY LYING TO YOURSELF

IT ENFORCES YOUR SELF HATRED
ANOTHER DARK COLOR TO THE WORLD YOUíVE PAINTED
YOU SHOULD STAY AWAY FROM HER
YOU TAKE ENOUGH GRIEF FROM HER


GROWING

IíM GROWINí OLDER NOW
I WIPE THE SLEEP RIGHT FROM MY EYES
IíM GETTING OLDER NOW
I HAVE SEEN THROUGH YOUR DECEPTIONS AND YOUR LIES

CHORUS
DONíT YOU GROW OLD ON ME
DONíT YOU GIVE UP ON ME

IíM GROWINí OLDER NOW
PLEASE DONíT GIVE UP ON ME
IíM FEELING BETTER NOW
MOVINí FORWARD NEVER NEVER MOVINí BACKWARD NOW


FALLING SQUIRRELS

THEREíS CRISHAWN, SHEíS SITTING AT THE DRAWING TABLE
IíM AT WORK RIGHT NOW IíLL BE HOME SOON AS I AM ABLE
IíM GETTING SICK AND TIRED OF WATCHING FALLING SQUIRRELS
IíD RATHER BE AT HOME WHERE PEOPLE DONíT TREAT ME LIKE A PARIAH

I TEND TO TALK TOO SOFT
PEOPLE (MY FRIENDS) DONíT UNDERSTAND
I TEND TO DRINK A LOT
LATELY ITíS OUT OF HAND, ITíS OUT OF HAND AND THAT IS WHY:

CHORUS
IíD RATHER BE HOME WITH YOU x 3
THAN WATCHING FALLING SQUIRRELS
