  • Persuaded, paraded, inebriated, and down
    Still aware of everything life carries on without
    'Cause there's one too many faces with dollar sign smiles
    Got to find the shortest path to the bar for a while

    A long way from happiness
    In a three hour away town
    Whiskey bottle over Jesus
    Not forever, just for now
    Not forever, just for now

    There's a trouble around, it's never far away
    The same trouble's been around for a life and a day
    I can't forget the sound, 'cause it's here to stay
    The sound of people chasing money and money getting away

    A long way from happiness
    In a three hour away town
    Whiskey bottle over Jesus
    Not forever, just for now
    Not forever, just for now

    In between the dirt and disgust there must be
