Porcupine Tree – Dignity Lyrics

Porcupine Tree – Dignity Lyrics

Lost boy
With the shreds of your shoes on your feet
And the schoolgirls called you a freak
Long gone
With all that you are in a bag
(Watching you fumble)
And a paper cup held in your hand

You have your pride, you’re standing your own ground
Your dignity will never go, and your mind is pretty sound
You stare at the sun
You screw up your face, and then you’re done

Lost soul
Camped at the side of the road
And the rain rises up through your toes
Brave man
With the egg running down past your nose
(The future was yours, how it came to this no one knows)
All the troubles you’ve had, no one knows
(Nobody knows)

You have your pride, you’re standing your own ground
Your dignity will never go, and your mind is pretty sound
You stare at the sun
You screw up your face, and then you’re done

Outside where the traffic cowers
And the past begins to fade away
Tell yourself it’s just what the thunder said
So pack up your belongings and stop talking with yourself

All the friends I have, I made you a list
Even if it’s true, they don’t all exist

(All the friends I have, I made you a list
Even if it’s true, they don’t all exist)

Slack jaw
Will you tell me of all that you were?
And the promises you made to her
Drink up
You can tell me of all that you’ve seen
While we wait for the light to turn green

You have your pride, you’re standing your own ground
Your dignity will never go, and your mind is pretty sound
You stare at the sun
You screw up your face, and then you’re done
