The floor has finally bottomed out, the pine ceiling sinking in,
The sides are touched so hard they're falling down,
The shack is looking worse for wear,
An empty eaten rocking chair,
And even the wild cats have left the grounds,
It's been ten thousand cigarettes,
A thousand cups of tea I guess,
I'm never there to see but I should know,
I'd join you for a final beer, or wine if you've got any here,
I'd join you if I ever thought you'd show,

The accordion at the carnival plays a lonely song,
For the dustman sweeping up the rags when all the music's gone,

So think of me just how you want,
And blame me when it was my fault,
I'm only partly who I was back then,
But don't spend too long hating me
Or dreaming how things used to be,
Because I'm never gonna see your face again,
So why re-roll the cold dead ash,
And lie long hours in pale cold flashing
Memories of a midnight mountain den,
I'm never gonna be with you,
I'm never gonna be with you,
I'm never gonna be with you again,
I'm never gonna be with you again.

The only way to keep on floating
Is throwing the treasure from the boat
And hoping what I must now do is sound,
I guess the words that lie beneath
The sealed lips, the smiling teeth,
Will outlive all the diary entries found,
And if the final explanation never reaches destination,
Bury all in dusty southern ground,
The dream is gone of marching home,
The dream is gone and all was done,
And lost for lack of some few simple sounds,

I've lost a lot of walking time,
Standing by your door,
The secret knock has changed I guess,
But I'll try one time more,
