lyrics

Here you are,
At the edge of the world.
Selling plastic
For diamonds and pearls.
Here you are,
At the edge of the world.
Here you are at the edge.

Door to door,
Home to home.
Vagabond,
Worth atoned.
Pockets green,
And on your feet.
Soilent green,
From the city sky.

Ceilings white,
Well-marketed lies.
Hotel rooms
And sleepless nights.
All alone,
Brochures and free-trials.
900 miles
On an empty heart.

Here you are,
At the edge of the world.
Selling plastic
For diamonds and pearls.
Here you are,
At the edge of the world.

I don't feel ready;
My palms are so sweaty,
My lips dripping blood
And it's still only 10 in the morning.
I'm wasting my time
Running on county lines.
I'd trade all these miles
Just to spend some more time with my baby.

I'm tired of selling
These shit household products
And magazines.
If God saves the poor
And the destitute,
Well what about me?
What about me?

Here I am,
At the edge of the world.
Selling plastic
For diamonds and pearls.
Here I am.
