the last ten years – mark eitzel lyrics

the ferryman
who takes me to my rest
he don’t give a d-mn
who’s cursed or blessed
anyway, i give him all my cash
i’m like some tragic hero
a lightning flash
followed by a million zeros

i spent the last ten years
(yeah)
trying to waste half an hour

every drunk is that vip
who only lives inside a rope
where they show you all the love
make mine a bourbon and c-ke
i’m not lying, mr. ferryman
i always make it home
though my house is built on sand
it ain’t worth the loan

i spent the last ten years
(yeah)
trying to waste half an hour

so i had that real good time
and then in the dawn
i saw the bartender’s love
i saw it in a yawn
mr. ferryman
do you party where you’re from?
do you know where to go
when the party’s all done?

i never been to h-ll
but they got my number
i feel them squirm inside my sh-ll
praying for slumber
it must suck, mr. ferryman
to hear the vanities talk
about the lies they need
just to walk the walk

i spent the last ten years
(yeah)
trying to waste half an hour
