I Don't Want To Live Forever Lyrics

You've got beet blood in your mouth and lies in your
artichoked heart
you're black eyes stalking through me
with a birdcage for ribs, that vultures trying to get
it's scratching your kidney wings
we're no longer feeding ourselves, the raccoons are
eating our dreams
pushing past our feeblery to keep them out, this
morning I heard one sing:
there's a whole big world out there my son, be careful
don't believe them.
there's a crazy old lady in the sun, she's angry can't
you feel it?
if you don't work hard you're no son of mine, well I've
earned these riverbeds
& I'll drown you out until you've made me proud if you
won't learn you're better off dead.
so, I'm digging in this farm yard trying to find the
forgetting all I have left in this world of course that
includes me
so I'm building and I'm learning and leaving nothing
all I am is all I have, I'll take this garden for my
and these are not just words built like a city of
dreams, we have no use for this kingdom
I'm proud of you my friends, may your lives be a
symphony of freedom

I don't want to live forever. I just want to live for
but the angel on my doorstep keeps pointing me towards
that plow
so I'm digging in with both my hands, keeping one eye
on the door
If I go looking I'll probably find it, ...and get all
I've been asking for

I don't want to live forever. I just want to live for
but your faces just keep haunting ...sometimes it's all
I see
so I'm working hard at learning all I can I'm gonna
give it all to you
I'll keep making payments, until we're all so straight
and true

I want to paint seeds together, and follow you right up
to the edge
filled up and spilling like carried cups, and watch the
sun go red
but there's poison right here in our water, and a shark
somewhere in the well
I wanna show you my life, show me your life and tell me
it's not the devil
I guess I I feel the way I feel, you make me feel like
I'm alive...
and I'm alive, am I alive, i am alive so you can
please come and live, why don't you live, you can live
inside of me...
there's a home for you inside me, inside of me there is
a fire
inside my fire, there is more fire, and in that fire
there is truth
but we take our furnace-chests, and run em neck deep
into that lake
and let the coals stare us down, one last glare of
doubt & hate
but we were wrong, no I was wrong, we'll just be wrong
about some things
and it will never be, it can never be, it should never
be this easy
to wash away the fire that burns, we wash away our
my eyes saw fire, my heart said escape
i said my eyes saw fire, my heart did escape
it's the beauty in the struggle has me going keeps me
sometimes I can see it in your face God but not in the
pages of a book
and there's something in your eye that's asking
I got no answers, just clues for a path to truth
I thought it was you. but yeah, I thought it was me

I don't want to live forever. I just want to live for
but the head on my shoulders keeps driving me to be
our brains don't want to listen, ears squinting for
some honesty
it's gets slippery here, hold on....we are not
ourselves probably

I don't want to live forever. I just want to live for
but the devil round my doorway keeps singing me
something new
so I'm listening with idle hands cupped tight around
both ears
my minds open like a burned down house, I haven't died
at all this year
