Eels


Rags to Rags

There’s a spider crawling on the bathroom mirror
Right on top of my right eye
And I can’t stop staring back
How did I get this way
Take a big look at a living lie

Rags to rags and rust to rust
How do you stand when you’ve been crushed
So rags to riches was a bust

Sometimes I dream about it
What it’s like back home
The railroad tracks and the pussywillow
But I had to leave it
Now I go back whenever my tired head hits the pillow

Rags to rags and rust to rust
How do you stand when you’ve been crushed
So rags to riches was a bust
Busted once again

Well I’ll show them one day
That I can buy and sell the world
And one day I’ll come through my american dream
But it won’t mean a fucking thing

Rags to rags and rust to rust
How do you stand when you’ve been crushed
So rags to rags and rust to rust
Don’t let me go
