lyrics

The Golden Spike

sun dried tomato hands
and petty coats on the nail
the golden spike was driven home
where the eastern met the western rail
your finger looks like a worm
laying is his fingered hook
and I always thought I had a stupid heart
and now I know and there's your proof

I'm going to pray with the grass that's blowing
out in the wind so hard and cold
and I can dream about where I hope I'm going
where the golden spike was hammered home

excuse me for all my longing
I'm sorry that I'm such a mess
but I'm sick and physically need something
from your medicine chest
your face looks just like the lake
where we used to have a summer place
and I know you can take me back there
because I know that you know the way

I'm going to pray like the grass that's blowing
out in the wind so hard and cold
and I can dream about where I hope I'm going
where the golden spike was hammered home

so if you don't mind taking advice
from someone that would never know
then don't bother searching anywhere but where
the golden spike was hammered home
