Wipe The Clock - Lyrics by Uncle Tupelo

hunted downsomeone said, no story, no gainwipe the clock right now
I despise what you crave
I remember youwhen you wore a different facenever heard a story of anyonewho drove the blacktop insaneleaning on a stoplightwaiting for eventual changewhat's it matter right nowit's not so easy to gaugeevery timethat you ask for moreit's the sound that makes the colors go blindand everything comes in threesbut your face shows twolost in the watershedway out of tuneain't it hardwhen the spirit doesn't catch yougravity's the winnerand it weighs you downit weighs you down
