Lyrics – Salem

Uncategorized | January 26th, 2012

There’s a patch of land in Oregon
That ain’t got much to look at
But every block and every bridge
Tells a story of it’s own
There’s a sense of pride
A sense of shame
And nothing seems to ever change
And I guess that’s just the way it goes
In the life I’ve left behind

There’s a buried boy in Oregon
He’s not the only one
Tat went down the waterfall
My uncle’s* in a jar
There’s suicides*
And overdose
And the numb still feels the same
And I guess that’s just the way it goes
In the life I’ve left behind

Them boys
Are still my family
‘Cause my bloodline
Fuckin’ blows
And no matter where I lay my head at night
Salem
Is still my home

There’s a shit-hole town in Oregon
Where the liquors never dry
I can raise my fist
Get real pissed
And contemplate my life
I miss my friends, but I can’t stay
Because the void still sucks my soul
And I guess that’s just the way it goes
In the life I’ve left behind
It’s the life I left behind
