The Rusty Tumbleweed

from by Members of the Sea



All she said was no
It was all that I needed
Ready to go
I misplaced my trust
in all that was fleeting
but seemingly just

As I turned to run
I tripped on a feeling
And fell in the mud
I returned to dust
With writhing and bleeding
to water and rust

I'd already died
My soul was the repeating
The same old melody

I should have listened when he said
"Cast not your pearls before the swine"
But had I listened I'd be living in an ordinary lie
And now the thing that's got me leaving is the one that held me back before

It is that all this world is fleeting
fill with moth and rust and lies
but you never really see me
'cause I had on the disguise
Of innocence and oblivion
But you know me better than that

All she said was no
It was all that i needed
Ready to go
