Conor Oberst

Conor Oberst - Bloodline

rate me

Rolling around a lifetime on a name that spells my past

Carried through the mile markers up towards some last laugh

And if fools could only prosper, I'm afraid what they might say

From a podium built on generations bleeding what they make

Because here it comes

Watch them all jump right in

Tell me, how could you refuse to float with the rest of them?

You were born into it, there's no shame if you drift

Down the bloodline

Feeling temperamental underneath a broke sun

A certificate of excellence, but no proof on your pay stub

And if money's not a problem, I suggest you best believe

There's ten dollars on the table and a million up his sleeve

And here they come, watch 'em all pass us by

Tell me how could you refuse to look one in the eye?

Two sheets to the wind all over again

Down the bloodline

Down the bloodline

Yes, it feels scary to be ordinary

In a world that don't know your name

It would not be weird if I just disappeared

Blowing my back out, trying to hope I wake

Looking for a doctor with a cure for a broke heart

Seems I spent it all on a miracle just to watch it fall apart

Now there's no room for ill-complaining, I know it's all just what it is

Cherry-pick my best believers and send 'em off with a kiss

'Cause there they go

Watch 'em all wave goodbye

Tell me how could you refuse to think it's a wonderful life?

Two sheets to the wind all over again

Down the bloodline

Down the bloodline

Down the bloodline
