I see red through the trees, don’t know yet what it means to me
Day's end has come again, I’m no closer to anything
Can you feel time chasing down the days?
Tearing down the leaves, tearing up your face?
All these things that just won’t wait
Let the rain wash them all away

A whiskey for your thoughts
Knees are clean but dirty is my soul

What can you say when there is nothing left to say?
I stood on the street with this smile on my face
Sweep it under the rug, throw it out the door
Turn a blind eye, turn your back on it all
Swallow it down dust and all
Hide years of lost in people and their talk

Wash them away
A whiskey for your thoughts
Chasing down the days
Knees are clean but dirty is my soul
