Cigarettes Wedding Bands
by Band of Horses

Working man's day wage, just piss it away
Leaves it out in the weather

Failure, he said, times two breeds contempt
Wash your hands of it forever

Violence, it ripped through the old dogwood fence
See the hope, see it unravel

Drunk brother said he could reason with them
While they lied at night, they lied at night, while they lied
While they lied at night, they lied at night, while they lied

The picture was left on the front porch, well that's it
I love you, don't you ever think of me?

My body knows there's a hell with my soul
We don't even know the difference

The dead folks in the clouds, for crying out loud
While they lied at night, they lied at night, while they lied
While they lied at night, they lied at night, while they lied

And why, did we live so long?
So long
So long

The house is not the same since we left it that day
Old friends seem to wonder
Our parents had cigarettes, wedding bells
While they lied at night, they lied at night, while they lied
While they lied at night, they lied at night, while they lied

And why, did we live so long?
So long
So long

While they lied at night, they lied at night, while they lied
While they lied at night, they lied at night, while they lied
While they lied at night, they lied at night, while they lied
Oh
