Meat Puppets — Nail It Down lyrics

In or around this cold and broken sight, in the heat of events got one thing right
I walked through an invisible fire; I got burned I remember and I still got the scar
Like the loosened connection on your personal circuit
Don't need a hammer just to nail it down, nail it down--nail it down
You know the thing with the sideways glance; In the heat of a moment there's a little chance
Little face with a painted grin comes the realization you must backwards walk in
If it tries to escape you through an open window
Don't need a hammer just to nail it down, nail it down--nail it down
Step aside to miss the opening verse; catch the full on blast of what's a little worse
Within a pond down inside somewhere there's a rustle of quiet and the salt of the air
If it tries to escape you through an open window
Don't need a hammer just to nail it down, nail it down--nail it down
Like the loosened connection on your personal circuit
Don't need a hammer just to nail it down, nail it down--nail it down
If it tries to escape you through an open window, nail it down,
Nail it down, nail it down, nail it down, nail it down, nail it down, nail it down, nail it down

This day
On this day we were miles away, we saw a clock up in the sky
The hands lay on the show to pay, number fallen on it's side
This day, this day
Just one note that was all she wrote and the sound blew down the walls
The one boat that was set to float took a trip right down the falls
This day, this day
This day you were miles away
This day
In two ways we could cut the haze and we never used a knife
In those days there was zero waste now the waste of time is life
This day, this day, this day, this day
This day, this day, this day, this day, this day, this day
