shine it all on lyrics – eels

tarot cards
said i’m already dead
crystal ball
fell down onto my head
tenderness
if i want it i pay
my true love
well she threw it away

but i can shine it all on
i can shine it all on
i can shine it all on
and still be amazed

had some money
and a hole in my pocket
had a house
but i forgot to lock it
took a drag
from a smoke that may kill me
what a drag
how the winter wind chills me

i can shine it all on
i can shine it all on
i can shine it all on
and still be amazed

i’ll shine it on just like macbeth
in the face of certain death
of a salesman or a king
and when the palm trees are on fire
i’ll take my boat out on the sea

had a face
but i never could save it
had a kid
but i never would name it
have a life
well that’s what they call it
it’s a road
but i guess i could crawl it
