about

"Hold On" - Pretty Bones, Muddy Ruckus, 2016

lyrics

Burnin rubber on the tracks
Up to no good's where it's at
You're face down in the ditch you choose to dig
Tryin hard to change your tune
Cause no one wants to play with you
You would cry but now your heart just aint that big

It's a damn tragedy
It's a vibrant memory
Stick to the end, you'll get there just the same
Cause it grew up nice and tall
Kicked the door and punched the wall
of the ceiling fell that never would remain

Hold on, baby hold on, hold on baby hold on
La da da da da da da, hold on, baby hold on

All these images and things
That we were taught to be
Ridiculous rules to obey
And to filter every move
and put a label on our souls
As if your life has just been waiting for this day

And really it's a joke
The way we feel around each other
Like a shovel for the bullshit all damn day
All my life, all my life
Every day and every night
In the end I'm gonna burn into the grave

Hold on, baby hold on, hold on baby hold on
La da da da da da da, hold on, baby hold on
Hold on, baby hold on, hold on baby hold on
La da da da da da da, hold on, baby hold on

Like a vine, we climb the wall
Built from our debris
All's been saved but now must fall
For something stirs beneath
Twist and curl and clamber up
The pyre shrouded by wings of
Dried out law and truth we've never known

All my life it's been chasing me
Cheating and a gambling
Pushing every one of you away
But when the flowers all die
Flip em round and let em dry
Skeleton of old still remains

You were built so you could handle
All the lies and all the scandals
But the truth that you uncovered in the shade
It was written, it was done
It was cast out in the sun
Of the ceiling fell that never could remain

Hold on, baby hold on, hold on baby hold on
La da da da da da da, hold on, baby hold on
Hold on, baby hold on, hold on baby hold on
La da da da da da da, hold on, baby hold on
