John Perry Barlow - Black-Throated Wind lyrics

You're bringing me down, I'm running aground Blind in the lights of the interstate cars Pa**ing me by, the busses and the semis Plugging like stones from a slingshot from mars But I'm here on the road, bound to the load That I picked up in ten thousand cafes and bars Alone with the rush of the drivers that won't pick me up The highway, the moon, and clouds and the stars Black throated wind, keeps on pourin' in With its words of a life where nothing is new Ah, mother American night, I pa** from the light Ah, I'm drownin' in you I left St. Louis, city of blues In the midst of a storm I'd rather forget I tried to pretend it came to an end Cause you werent the women I once thought I'd met But I can't deny, times have gone by Well I never had doubts or thoughts of regret And I was a man when all this began Who wouldn't think twice about being there yet Black throated wind, whisper in sin And speaking on life that pa**es like dew It's forced me to see you've done better by me Better by me that I've done by you Now whats to be found by racing around You carry your pain wherever you go Full of blues, and trying to lose You ain't gonna learn what you dont wanna know So I give you my eyes and all of their lies Please help them to learn as well as to see Capture a glance, and make it dance But looking at you is looking at me Black throated wind, keeps on pourin in With its words of a life that could almost be true Ah, mother American night, here comes a light I'm turning around, that's what I'm gonna do Going back home that's what I'm gonna do I'm turning around, that's what I'm gonna do Going back home that's what I'm gonna do Cause you've done better by me than I've done by you I'm drowning in you
