Sundowner - Mouth Of A Tiger lyrics

I'm worth five bucks or less
The future's down my neck
My restless soul takes stride
Far across this great divide

I won't heed its cry
Won't follow its lifeline
It's time to sink or swim
Sail alone or anchor in

I'm funny like a nameless fool
I'm as lucky as a funeral

I've got cliches to write
I get high as a kite
My dreams force me to wake
Find meaning to this day

Burned away into the night
Grabbed me with the reason why
I'm sick with the TV on
It drones in the lonely dawn

I'm funny like a nameless fool
I'm not looking at a glass half-full

I'm tired of the same old pace
I hate this same old day
How easily I fill this space
Handed down from the same old place

I fade with the old street lights
I bark with the dogs at night
When the moon is full and bright
It smiles in the alleys' eyes

Pin me up with the stars tonight
I've been looking for a place to shine
One day it'll be my time
I'm not waiting for the bells to chime

I'll break like a traffic jam
I'll sing like a slaughtered lamb
Upside-down like an hourglass
I've been waiting for the sands to pass

But the storm keeps rolling in
Sharp teeth are the howling wind
I'm like a penny in a fountain, thrown
From a woman to some poem unknown

I'm funny like an aimless fool
I'm as lucky as a funeral

Now the world seems so clear
As it disappears
In the blink of a frozen eye
In the course of an hour gone by

One day my star will rise
A new path will open wide
Like the mouth of a tiger
I will swallow all my pride

I'm funny like an aimless fool
I'm not looking at a glass half-full
I'm tired of the same old pace
How easily I fill this space
