Lyrics to Rise Up In The Dirt
Too many times you’re gonna go out river walking

Too many times you come in late

Too many times you suck yourself out of the scene.

It makes you walk up straight,

It makes you walk up straight.



Too many times you trade the bottle for the body

One drop for breath and one for skin

You say nobody knows the truth about your body

Are you tired and thing? Are you tired and thin?



But if I were a good man

Would it really happen

Would you walk me home then, everyday from work.

But maybe I’m a good man, wait and let it happen

I believe in love, I’m married to my work.



Cause I could be your father, I could be your brother,

I could be your flower, rise up in the dirt,

we were born to live here we were born to die here

and you know this when you work

yeah you watch me when you work



and When you are free from the work of the towns

well You know what to do with your hands

Listen, I’m sure, you’ve got a few ideas.

And when you wake from the shell of this body

How will you sink your ghost in a man

Well I hope you’ve got something better up your sleeve



Too many times you cleaned your love dry for your family

And roll over in your sleep

Roll over twice and hold the burden like a man

Something you can keep, something you can keep

You smell the scent of something burning in the kitchen

He smells the future on the lawn.

These are the things we come to recognize as truth

We cut the right into wrong, we cut the right into wrong.



But if I were a good man

Would it really happen

Would you walk me home then, everyday from work.

But maybe I’m a good man, wait and let it happen

I believe in love, I’m married to my work.



Cause I could be your father, I could be your brother,

I could be your flower, rise up in the dirt,

we were born to live here we were born to die here

and you know this when you work

yeah you watch me when you work



it seems that we used to live like rebels

but now we get scared like our parents

our struggling faith,

its just a waste of money



and when you wake up tomorrow my son

yeah, you will be the father of something terrible

it will shine throughout you life

oh it won’t burry you

cause we know

somewhere in the darkness

you will find love baby

you will find love

you will feel young again

and you will feel young.
