Hiss Golden Messenger – Sanctuary Lyrics

Sanctuary Lyrics – Hiss Golden Messenger

Feeling bad, feeling blue
Can’t get out of my own mind
I know how to sing about it
Ring of bone, a little lonely
I better hit the road, child
We can cry into the phone a while

Jubilee, find me
Steady with your hope now
That little light’s gotta last a while
Like an arrow to the marrow
I know it feels like hell now
Till we make it to the other side

Want good news, you want sanctuary
When you try to get real
Oh, they break you in one week
You wanna move, you want sanctuary
That’s all that I can offer to you
From the bottom to the bone, to the bone

Get used to the bad news
It’s all part of the show, child
Handsome Johnny had to go, child
What did you feel, brother, bad dreams?
Well, there’s something you should know now
There’s little things that’ll cut you down

Ragged people, hard times
And the lightning strikes the poorhouse
Rich man cries like a crocodile
Salvation, despair
But the game that they taught me
Sometimes it feels like it just ain’t fair

You want good news, you want sanctuary
When you try to get real
Oh, they break you in one week
You wanna move, you want sanctuary
That’s all that I can offer to you
From the bottom to the bone, to the bone

Yeah, to the bone
Oh, to the bone
Yeah, to the bone
Oh, to the bone
Yeah, to the bone
Oh, to the bone

Feeling bad, feeling blue
Can’t get out of my own mind
I know how to sing about it
