lyrics

Hopeful & Hopless © R L Fountain 2017

There’s so much doubt out here in the wasteland
Like we’re sinners come undone
Ain’t no water to chastise me, no shade under Christ’s apple tree
I’m weary with the toil

Didn’t mean to say don’t love me
I’m used to pushin’ time away
Been out here carvin’ my own line for so long
It’s hard to stop the goddamned race

Hopeful and hopeless
I’m hopeful and hopeless
All you guys better open your eyes get us out of this goddamned mess
And fight for the hopeful and hopeless

I’m the one who gets the best meat
The fat of the lamb
Blessed be the sacrificial beasts
They’re killing their own selves

Each time I get close to the mark
I’m reminded of how far I’ve been torn apart
Strewn like a desert seed and grown like a cactus weed
I’m living on a prayer, for the



Hopeful and hopeless
Hopeful and hopeless
All you guys better open your eyes get us out of this goddamned mess
And fight for the hopeful and hopeless

When you say that it’s over your words kiss death upon my mouth
Kiss the cheeks kiss the lips of the ones that I love and pass it round
Always knew this was hell but there’s no one up there looking down

I’m still here even if you don’t see me
Just a waverin’ in the wind
All you’ve been you will breath again
So hurry home to me
All you’ve been you will breath again
So hurry home to me, to the

Hopeful and hopeless
I’m hopeful and hopeless
All you guys better open your eyes get us out of this goddamned mess
And fight for the hopeful and hopeless
All you guys better open your eyes get us out of this goddamned mess
And fight for the hopeful and hopeless
