Conor Oberst

Conor Oberst - Milk Thistle

rate me

Milk thistle, milk thistle

Let me down slow

Help me go slow

I've been carryin' on

I'm not scared of nothin'

I'll go pound for pound

I keep death on my mind

Like a heavy crown

If I go to Heaven,

I'll be bored as hell

Like a little baby

At the bottom of a well

Fairchild, Fairchild

How are you, man?

Did you fix that storefront?

Did you start that band?

Don't be scared of nothin'

You go pound for pound

You bring peace to midnight

Like a spotted owl

I'll be rootin' for you

Like my favorite team

If somebody sweats you

You just point 'em out to me

All the sights and sounds

This little world's too crowded now

And there's only one way out

An elevator ride

Through the tunnel towards the light

And I'm nowhere-bound

Keep going up and down

Up and down

Newspaper, newspaper

Can't take no more

You're here every morning

Waitin' at my door

And I'm just tryin' to kiss you

And you stab my eyes

Make me blue forever

Like an island sky

And I'm not pretending

That it's all okay

Just let me have my coffee

Before you take away the day

Lazarus, Lazarus,

Why all the tears?

Did your faithful chauffer just disappear?

What a lonesome feeling

To be just waitin' round

Like some washed up actress

In a Tinseltown

But for the record

I'd come pick you up

We'll head for the ocean

Just say when you've had enough

All the light and sound

This little world's too fragile now

And there's only one way out

But if you let me slide

I'll do my best to make things right

And I'm nowhere-bound

Keep going up and down

Up and down

Milk thistle, milk thistle

Let me down slow

Just help me down slow

I've been hurryin' on

I was poised for greatness

I was down and out

I keep death at my heels

Like a basset hound

If i go to heaven

I'll be bored as hell

Like a crying baby

At the bottom of a well.
