Glorious Dregs

from the album "The Berry Vest of the Swirling Eddies"

1995 Words and Music by Terry Taylor

Resplendent riff-raff
On our last legs
Fuel for the fire
Dust for the graves
Earth and sky
You an I
The glorious dregs

Aluminum foil
A crown for our heads
Faithless and loyal
To love we allege
Diamonds and leaves
You and me
The glorious dregs

Worthless and worthy
Like profane prophets we speak
Of vengeance and mercy
Of an eye for and eye
And turning the other cheek

Selfless and selfish
A life in debt
Brothers and bigots
Blessings and plagues
Forgiven and cursed
The last, the first
The glorious dregs

Earth and sky
You and I
The glorious dregs

Earth and sky
You and I
The glorious dregs
