lyrics

By my flesh I'm bound
To this world of darkness and light
Where idle hands are sword swallowers
In a firefight

Under the starry sky
I roam this endless trail
I must find my own way
And not forsake a detail

The beat of my boot heels
The rhythm of a dream
I reach the city line
And I'm picking up steam

I look off to the distance
At the shadows in the grass
The world invents itself before me
Creation comes at last

The open air of midnight
The allure of the unknown
One noise is calm and steady
Listen to that old whistle blow

The beat of my boot heels
The rhythm of a dream
I reach the city line
And I'm picking up steam

We play basements, cruise ships, and concert halls - and hope you enjoy it! ... more
