Steal The Crumbs - Lyrics by Uncle Tupelo

Sidetracked down the middle
Never saw it coming, what a surprise
It's been a wonder
Electricity tells a story
It's a sound getting near as fear is watching you
It's watching you close
You can fight it, both arms swinging
Or try to wash it away
Or pay up to the echoes of 'okay'
No more, no more will I see you
No more will I see you
No more will I see you
You've schemed more than you have
You've borrowed more than you know
Better to steal the crumbs
It makes it easier to go
Paralyzed by conscience
Looking for an opening
Apathy as your vocal cords cut out
Never thought once to ask how's the temperature
Too busy with the finer points
Of each struggle we're after
No more, no more will I see you
No more will I see you
No more will I see you
So long since I've seen you
Haven't we both been living the high life
It flows to the bottom
No more, no more will I see you
No more will I see you
No more will I see you
