Dominos Lyrics

[Intro: Conor Oberst]
Can you hear the crickets?
All I hear is crickets
Like a river
Shining through the edges of my sight
The sky is pitch black, dark
Yet somehow really peaceful
At the same time

[Verse 1: Conor Oberst]
It gets dark in the morning
Trade sleep for drinks in a bar
I'm sure as hell my breath stinks
Watch it float like smoke in the fog
I can feel a tornado
And it's shivering up my arms
I been playing dominoes
I'm just trying not to wreck no cars
Putting fear in my nose
And trying to keep with all my thoughts

[Conor Oberst & Phoebe Bridgers]
If we're going somewhere, I'm ready
If it's just dirt, I'm not

[Verse 2: Conor Oberst & Phoebe Bridgers]
I scrape my eye when I touch the sky
And lose a little vision for the man
I can call it in my mind
I don't want to hold nobody's hand
I can toss in the morning light
I'll play dead when I'm buried in the sand
I'm seeing shadows of man who's
Homeless, buried and numb
A forecast of forgotten land
I hope it shows up in the setting sun

[Conor Oberst & Phoebe Bridgers]
If we're going somewhere, I'm ready, honey
If it's nowhere, I'm done

[Conor Oberst & Phoebe Bridgers]
I can hear a voice but it's speaking code
(Poured concrete on top, concrete on top, concrete)
Like I'm talking to strangers on a foreign phone
I can talk to angels when I'm all alone
They take me to a place in the city
And when we're done they take me home

[Conor Oberst & Phoebe Bridgers]
Can't find a forest with the singing birds
Instead I'm just a low voice in the crowd
Can't hear my own voice in this crowd

[Phoebe Bridgers]
I get edgy on dark streets
Coming home, I feel my heartbeat
I say I'm stoned for the last time
I do it again and repeat

[Conor Oberst & Phoebe Bridgers]
I'm carpooling to kingdom come
Into the wild purgatory
Experience in a magic rainbow
All you got to do is follow

[Conor Oberst & Phoebe Bridgers]
And if you're not feeling ready
There's always tomorrow
And if you're not feeling ready
There's always tomorrow
