No Use for a Name

No Use for a Name - Let Me Down

She's never alone, because she's scared of what she might say to herself

Always drinking in the backroom of the bar where everyone turns in

A half-hearted grin

She won't be afraid as long as that prescription keeps going through

And all the happy pills make her look like cardboard cut out of someone,

I use to learn from

But on the phone, she's telling everyone,

that there was a blue sky, she left behind

And there's a place that no one knows about,

Away from integrity she writes a book in her head that nobody will read

Whatever you say, please don't talk about the time when she was young

Apparently that was a different person and so long ago it's strange to me,

there's no history

But there's a past and she's telling everyone It must be a garden,

that wouldn't grow

With roots of shame, too sensitive to blame to herself as we watch he drown,

I can't save the queen without a kingdom or a crown

Somewhere in this lonely game of sympathy there is a selfish dream

That makes me sick

Standing on the high wire while you're on the ground

To you what is dangerous is safe and sound...

You let me down
