lyrics

Far be it from me now
to dissuade your earthly hopes
Exclusion, camera eye on
father, son, and holy smoke—
On the horizon line, there’s too much
to just sleep through
but looking back,
was I just a good distraction for you, for you
Was I nothing but a good distraction for you?

We won’t get out alive
bleary eyes as pre-dawn fades
Execution ’89,
you were on my mind for days
Devil lust for angel eyes,
taking back what you said I owed you, owed you
Was I nothing but a good distraction for you?
Were we nothing but a good distraction for you?

You might have thought you saw a light at the end,
for the first time, my old friend,
You might have thought you saw a light at the end
that called your name
You might have thought you saw a light at the end

Wishing well believers, all,
in these dreams that conquer youth
Never mind that siren call
that belies the need for proof
of a cool and simple time
when there was no perfect truth
Did we love each other then?
Who can tell, but I know I told you, told you
Was I nothing but a good distraction for you?
Was I nothing but a good distraction for you?

You might have thought you saw a light at the end
for the first time, my old friend,
You might have thought you saw a light at the end
that called your name
You might have thought you saw a light at the end
for the first time, my old friend,
You might have thought you saw a light at the end
that called your name
You might have thought you saw a light at the end
