from the "13 North & South EP"

lyrics

On a narrow strip of land
Between two coasts
13 runs north and south
but somehow, it's just the end of the road

My father was a prison guard
I know I will be one too
Like the people of the Kentucky coal mines
There's just nothing else to do
If I could save up, I'd be heading out
But I've got nowhere to go

13 runs north and south
but somehow, it's just the end of the road

The neighbor is breaking into our house
And he's pushing us around
The sheriff don't give a good goddamn
In this lawless town
Keep it up man, just keep on pushing
until you're making me explode

13 runs north and south
but somehow, it's just the end of the road

My best friend before he died was a wise & simple man
He said "Son, don't you be like me. You better get out while you can"
Still I do my best to forget that I've got something to lose
I do my best to forget with help from this bottle of booze

Sometimes on the edge of town
Where the marshes meet the street
I can see way past this place
To where I wanna be
So I'll be saving up and I'll be heading out
To where I don't know

13 runs north and south
but somehow, it's just the end of the road
