lyrics

I’m driving past her now – 
The dotted yellow line has drawn me south. 
The sun lies low on the town – 
I know what she will pull from the broken ground… tonight. 

You ask me now what I feel – 
The riverside has won my sword and shield. 
I press my face to the field – 
and the gently setting sun to the twisted steel. 

        Don’t you got lots to say? It’s past your time 
        To speak your mind. 
        The lighted domes in shadowed homes are all I see, but I’ve got 
        One thing to find...

They show it frame by frame – 
Each time you hope they won’t run it quite the same. 
A smoke trail climbs through the rain – 
You wonder what goes first in the dying brain. 

        Don’t you got lots to say? It’s past your time 
        To speak your mind. 
        The lighted domes in shadowed homes are all I see, but I’ve left 
        One thing behind...

And I found your old room. And I said I’d stay to play one tune. And I saw your beautiful face. And I thought, ‘My god, what’s happened to this place?’ 

Don’t say, my love,
Hush now little heart
O Carver of trembling hand
that it’s too late, my love,
See the world was
Set against you
We both are waking
Well you know that it’s time to go… 


Oh, you ask me now what I’ve found – 
I chase the Westward Day at the speed of sound. 
You’ve got it turned around – 
Prometheus has shrugged, and Atlas is bound.
