lyrics

Oh, I’m wearing the clothes of a dead man
But that’s easy to forget
When they’re clinging to your back
Oh, I’m wearing the clothes of a dead man
And the lessons that I’ve learned
From years of his concern
But now he’s a dead man
And it feels like his eyes
Are watching everything now
From the skies
Now that he’s a dead man

Oh, I’m wearing the clothes of a dead man
The fit’s a little wrong
But it feels so safe and warm
Oh, I’m wearing the clothes of a dead man
You take what’s right and what’s wrong
And you forge it into your own
Now that he’s a dead man
And it feels like his arms
Are reaching down to help
But you’re all alone
Now that’s he’s a dead man

With Cape Disappointment, he deserves a seat at the table alongside Jeff Tweedy, Steve Earle, Warren Zevon, and John Prine. He's that good." - PopMatters ... more
