    Knuckle Down

    That's just my cowgirl alter-ego
    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 thinks, I 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 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
    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 now, the 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
