T Bone Burnett – Acquired Past

Suspicious character
A short brunette
The vengeful God of the South
Everybody knows these things go on and yet
Tie this scarf around your mouth
And I might static out at any moment

Making this machine to take her through the?
And quasi radiowave td
The hour before the angel broke the seal
And Hank Williams tragic life was?
And I might static out at any moment
And I might re-assemble into?

Will someone take this knife out of my back and plunge it deep into my heart
But don’t let anyone who lives in there
For her eyes are filled with laughter and deceit
I’m in danger when they meet
And I am not where I think I am

I’m afraid things are not going to work out for?
But you’re going to have to find someone willing to be a victim
If these gentlemen will kindly take this cue
They will show you off into oblivion

She was demystified by her own words
Pure speculation?
She simply split?
Then backed into the?
And I might static out at any moment
And I might re-assemble into?
And we might cross paths and the flux might?
For a moment that she never will forget
