Screen lyrics

HARDY

Screen
Someone somewhere bought a brand new rifle
Pointed at a man holding a bible
So sad you won't believe it, but I swear to God I've seen it
Right there on a TV screen
Shooting stars all burning up the night sky
Something someone sees once in a lifetime
You gotta look on up 'fore it's gone, but damn if we ain't fixed on
A good-for-nothing cellphone screen

See the world, take it in, catch a sunrise
With your own eyes

I wanna drive, wanna run till the wires run out
I need to heal, need to feel, like I'm alive right now
Pull the plug, just shatter the glass
Make it stop, these days under a rock doesn't sound half bad
Put me alone, singing 'long to a red bird song
I wanna live like they did in the great unknown
Yeah, if you need me I'll be watching the storm
Somewhere from a chair just staring through a back porch
Screen

A baseball getting dusty at a Walmart
Could send a kid all the way to Wrigley ballpark
Might be a hall of fame one
The whole world knows his name one
But he'd rather hit a homerun on a screen

I wanna drive, wanna run till the wires run out
I need to heal, need to feel, like I'm alive right now
Pull the plug, just shatter the glass
Make it stop, these days under a rock doesn't sound half bad
Put me alone, singing 'long to a red bird song
I wanna live like they did in the great unknown
Yeah, if you need me, I'll be watching the storm
Somewhere from a chair just staring through a back porch screen

Take a good look out the window
Keep it in your pocket at the rock show
Just give it a try
Every battery does but your memory will never die

I wanna drive, wanna run till the wires run out
I need to heal, need to feel, like I'm alive right now
Pull the plug, just shatter the glass
Make it stop, these days under a rock doesn't sound half bad
Put me alone, singing 'long to a red bird song
I wanna live like they did in the great unknown
Yeah, if you need me I'll be watching the storm
Somewhere from a chair just staring through a back porch

Screen
Yeah, through a back porch screen
See the world, take it in, catch a sunrise
With your own eyes
