    Lyrics

    The old plantation has been abandoned
    The love is gone yeah the love is gone
    New hieroglyphics braid the columns
    Kids on the M-Train baptize the lawns

    Your floating jukebox stuck on "I'll get you"
    So lost at sea yeah so lost at sea
    You watch the rations you man the spyglass
    So far from Memphis rivers from me.

    But did you ever really try
    To peel away the sky
    Neither did I

    The master bedroom its shutters hanging
    It's no museum it's no museum
    The fields are barren but for a bonfire
    A pile of empties in the mausoleum

    But did you ever really try
    To peel away the sky
    Neither did I

    God bless the shelter so bruised and battered
    God bless the days yeah god bless the days
    The old plantation is like a sore now
    A home for maggots but don't turn away

    Don't turn away until you try
    To peel away the sky

    Don't turn away until you try
    To peel away the sky
