Artist :Ani Difranco
Album :Knuckledown
Title :

Knuckle Down



Riding on her bar room bull

Dripping with the sweat of irony

As the cowboys whoop and drool

Shooting glances at the mirror

To see if her scar is showing

She is truly going nowhere tonight



Lecherous old lady wanna-be

Much too young and shy

Flailing her whole life

Just thinking she can teach herself to fly

Vehement romantic

Frantic for forever right now

But forever's going nowhere tonight



Sick of goading her self-loathing

She thinksI think I'd better leave

'Course whiskey makes me smarter

And I'm happy as can be

But please excuse me darlin

It's not you

It's me



And there's a dusty old dust storm on marsthey say

So tonight you can't see it too clear

Still I stood in line to look through their telescope

Looked like a distant ship light

As seen from a foggy pier

And I know that I was warned

Still it was not what I hoped

Yes I know that I was warned

Still it was not what I hoped



I think I'm done gunnin to get closer

To some imagined bliss

I gotta knuckle down

And just be ok with this

I'm gonna knuckle down

Just be ok with this

'Course that star struck girl is already someone I miss



I swear some stuff you just see better from further away

And I think I communicate best nowthe less I say

And I can't dance if the band can't play

And the vibe is going nowhere tonight



'Cuz somewhere between Hollywood and its pretty happiness

And an anguish so infinite it's anybody's guess

Is a place where people are all teachers

And this just one long class

And that ass will get you nowhere tonight



There's a dusty old dust storm on mars they say

So tonight you can't see it too clear

Still I stood in line to look through their telescope

Looked like a distant ship light

As seen from a foggy pier

And I know that I was warned

Still it was not what I hoped

Yeah I know that I was warned

Still it was not what I hoped



I think I'm done gunnin to get closer

To some imagined bliss

I gotta knuckle down

Just be ok with this

Gotta knuckle down

Just be ok with this



'Course that star struck girl

Is already someone I miss
