I found a half-pack of Marlboro lites
On the passenger seat of my old sedan
I'm not sure, but I think they must be yours.
But I don't think you're gonna miss them where you are.

I've been thinking a lot of smoking as of recent and I never really had the lungs for it. But I just need something to make sure that I'm still breathing, make sure I can still feel anything.
I guess I still have the songs and the stories on 'No Closer to Heaven.' They make me feel unusually warm through this harsh New England winter.

And ain't it a shame
that I had to turn out this way?
And my heart fucking aches.
I haven't seen you in months.

I'd give anything to see your face and I know you'd give anything to know that I'm at ease. That I'm at peace and that I can breathe. Another day, another way for me to see you needed me.
The crushing stress that's on my chest, it brings me to my knees. I've never been a man of god, but I find myself begging him please.

I'm not sure how I'll get through this winter,
Without the help from your cowboy killers.

If I promise to live to see another day, then promise me that I can have this space to breathe because the guilt is crushing me.
