Trees Get Wheeled Away Lyrics - Bright Eyes

Review The Song (1)

Anchormen spike their blood
Wear masks of mud
Cucumbers cut to fit their eyes
And so no one would know how tired they've grown
Of talking and telling their lies

While your tvs change stations scroll messages
Victims and Christians both drinking blood
And they pray for the destruction of all hatred
More often just those with hate for us

Cause it hurts when you discover one's worse and one's better
To suffer or cause others to
And you can live by your conscience
Now guilt is a concept
You're no longer subscribing to

There's a virgin in my bed
And she's taking off her dress
I don't know what I am gonna do
There's a song stuck in my head
And I can't help singing it
Oh how I hope my singing pleases you
Cause this is not who I've become
But what you made me into

Oh we got no health insurance
No cellular service
No disease they can cure
But we need more money to burn
So each person must learn the dollar amount they are worth

And your pills make me dizzy
Forgetting my body
I watch as it walks away
And I just keep drinking the poison
And smoking the cartons
A pack and a half a day

So when time comes to claim me
My friends and my family will gather around my grave
And they'll believe that they knew me and loved me and missed me
And all call me by my name

So imagine what you want
And then hold on to that thought
Cause that's as close as it will ever come
And believe you're where you are
Just keep acting out the part
But at the end of the day the trees all get wheeled away
And you'll be standing alone in a blank blank space

So believe you're who you are
And just stay in character
But at the end of the play the audience walks away
And you'll be shivering cold on a well lit stage.

This song- no, Conor oberst, is the most poetic man. This is an amazing song( just like all of them) | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/21/10

Well I pretty summed it all up in the title box there by like I said this is an amazing song with beautifuly writen lyrics. To me it says that you are never who you want to be and you are never who people see you as. Which I mean if you think about, I never tell anyone anyhing about me( not that I have anyone to tell anyhing to anyway) but yah i lie to myself and definently to others but when i die I hope to be thrown in antartica and I'll be frozen and therefore preserved and then in will love forever! Well at least my body will need decompose and I don't want a funeral cus I don wanna bunch of peopel I don't care about that think they love me but only but only love my lies and I never tell realy tell them anythig about me anyway so I guess not even my lies just the comfort of my existence And cry thinkng they knew and loved me but they didn't. They can suck it up cus o don't love them. I think that is what Conor is trying to say.
