lyrics

Well the last of the honeybees
Has packed her bags and taken her leave
For the two left standing tall oak trees
Just-a humming humble solidarity and

All the apples was like basketballs and
All the kids, they had no sense at all
All of our gods were TV stars
Dark-eyed doves smokin' sweet cigars

So you and I drove to the very end of the road
'Til the pavement dropped out to the ocean below
What did we see but a thousand old dreams
Just-a trying to tread water in a cold, empty sea

And so a toast to the tired hands
That saved their breath and set their caps
There goes the ghost of a dead romance
Forever west, there's an endless land


And little Lydia James plays a video game
Where you live and breathe and walk down the street
And the town crier is a thief and a liar
That scares you into dyin' every day you start to feel alive

So you and I drove to the very end of the road
'Til the pavement dropped out to the ocean below
What did we see but a thousand old dreams
Just-a trying to tread water in a cold, empty sea

And so a toast to the tired hands
That saved their breath and set their caps
There goes the ghost of a dead romance
Forever west, there's an endless land

Ooo

And so a toast to the tired hands
That saved their breath and set their caps
There goes the ghost of a dead romance
Forever west, there's an endless land

(All the apples was like basketballs and
All the kids, they had no sense at all)
