The Avett Brothers Down With the Shine Lyrics

Down with the shine, the perfect shine
That poisons the well and ruins my mind.
I get took for a ride every time.
Down with the glistening shine.

It's in with the new and it's out with the old.
Out goes the warm and in comes the cold.
It's the most predictable story told.
In with the young and out with the old.

Down with the shine, the perfect shine
That poisons the well and ruins my mind.
I get took for a ride every time.
Down with the glistening shine.

A belly full of high dollar wine.
A fat hand, a fat wallet, too.
Things change and get strange with this movement of time.
It's happening, right now to you.

Down with the shine, the perfect shine
That poisons the well and ruins my mind.
I get took for a ride every time.
Down with the glistening shine.

Down with the shine, the perfect shine
That poisons the well and ruins my mind.
I get took for a ride every time.
Down with the glistening shine.

It's a real bad time to bring up the truth
Tho we searched we found no fountain of youth
Not in Spain nowhere near, anywhere close to here

There's nothing good because nothing lasts
And all that comes here, it comes here to pass.
I would voice my pain, but the change wouldn't last.
All that comes, it comes here to pass.

Down with the shine, the perfect shine
That poisons the well and ruins my mind.
I get took for a ride every time.
Down with the glistening shine.

I get took for a ride every time.
Down with the glistening shine.
Down with the glistening shine.
Down with the glistening shine.
