Fall Down Easy - Lyrics by Uncle Tupelo


Lyrics
disengaged, we're forsaken nowcommunication does sufferthe moral stare of Big Brothernot a chance, no compromisebattling the barrier of beliefnot to try anymoredon't want to murder the only memory or hidetry to accept that it's all worthwhilewhen you've been disengagedsevered from any world that's mineyou can hang the blame on the wallit'll be a frame around us alldeluged by stickers and billboardsthe conversation turns to warnever thought it would come down to thisit seems every person for themselfdon't want to murder the only memory or hidetry to accept that it's all worthwhilewhen you've been disengagedsevered and forsakenwhen you've been disengagedsevered from any world that's minemore and more makes a hunger for lessyou get hurt when you touchthe bright lights burningwhen you're highyou can fall down easytoo many years spent trigger-happyat times I feel betrayed
I feel that I've been wrongedsuspended in all disbeliefuntil it seems it just can't go on
