lyrics

maybellene the drunken queen
stays behind in the wholesale dream
don't believe in what she sees
this endless trail through the leaves

fine tooth comb through the coats
the guard breathes out stale old jokes
and from the ceiling, a yellow smoke
keeping the windows open, and the breeze is cool

we walk down the middle of the street
you get the best view of the scene
both sides are breaking clean
and the bricks fall, where they stay

trumpets play behind the door
wolves appear out of the floor
you cry out, but anymore
it's a black rain, and red wave

before the law in a glass revolving room
we were pushing the sea back with a broom
and dancing in the wavelength of the moon
but all these things
all these things will always end too soon

i stay behind in the dream
running wild with maybellene
make-believe with the drunken queen
on an endless trail through the leaves

woke up in someone's pool
fell asleep and dropped out of school
the window's open, and the breeze is cool
blowing the yellow smoke by the country jail
