lyrics

I sold my favorite record for a dollar at the liquor store
The taxman is knocking at my cellar door
Receipts, 1040s and W9s
It takes a lot of paper to stay in line

I stood out by the highway with an empty coffee tin in my hand
I sold my only guitar, I quit my only band
RVs, sedans and the company car
You lose a lot of yourself before you know who you are

Still, you insist you left the light on if I ever feel like coming back home
And you insist you stoked the fire in the basement, gonna keep me warm
There ain't a thing that I could do to wrong you
There ain't no need to make things right

Let me tell you that I've been running on empty
Everything's alright
Ain't nothing wrong
Just turn the radio on

There is a light
And it will guide us through the night
And I believe
In destiny and human decency
And I believe that fortune will descend upon the fates of man
Who keep their heads out of the clouds
And keep their eyes upon the grind

I need to let you know I've been running on empty
Everything's alright
Ain't nothing wrong
Just turn the radio on
