Ain't Listen'n

I should never say,
I should never do,
I should never be noth’n mo’ than this twisted game that’s pulling through.
And I try,
And I fail,
And somewhere there’s a home that’s calling,
“Keep on calling!”
But I ain’t listen’n,
Just like I ain’t really trying,

Just like I ain’t noth’n mo’ than this twisted train that’s pulling through.
And she took my ticket,
Just like I stole her stub,
And it left me staggering,
But I ain’t scared,
Cause I got me a pistol with a one way ticket to hell and I’m in the clear,

Just like I ain’t noth’n mo’ than this twisted game that’s pulling through.
So best not come to me in the dark,
Best not follow me in,
Cause I ain’t armed with noth’n but my pistol,
“Fuck if it ain’t fully loaded, all I need is one.”

And I try
And I fail
And I cry
With my ear pressed to the cold tracks listen’n
To the train that ain’t really coming,
But I ain’t hearing,
Cause I ain’t really trying.
Yet…

Ain't Listen'n
