SongsWayward Sister
Performed Live: 16 times

Hard luck don't go down easy
It seizes up your wits
But, I promise aint sleazy
To hack it up to bits

Those that leave it up to Nature
To bargain Fortune in their name
Often justify the torture
Often revel in the shame

Wayward Sister, get up off the floor
Wayward Sister, step out the door

Woke up between one and two
Who are you kidding, you never fell asleep
In the tips of your fingers you can feel the doom
Being laughed at by the sheep

Cooking, cleaning, smiling, scheming,
Breathing in a chicken room takes a toll
You've spent years of daydreaming
Chasing the fox out of its hole

Wayward Sister, get up off the floor
Wayward Sister, step out the door

Hitched up the hogs about a million times
Yet what is there to show
Move to town, drop all your dimes
Rush down there to earn some more

We can smell it when you enter
Don't deny the utter truth
You've been made over by a blender
You've been howling to the moon

Wayward Sister, get up off the floor
Wayward Sister, step out the door

Hard luck don't go down easy
It suffocates your brain
But, I promise aint sleazy
To run away from all the pain

Nestle with us in the forest
We eat and sing all of the time
Live like a transendentalistic tourist
Is being happy such a crime?

Wayward Sister, get up off the floor
Wayward Sister, step out the door
