lyrics

He’ll lead you to a darkened room,
you’ll say oh my have I gone blind?
And on the floor a map was thrown,
knowing well, you’d make up time
to hang around above you
so at least there’s something here that moves.
But you can’t see that silver moon,
it’s a blindness you choose.
Emergency red and outdated
with an ear to an unplugged phone,
pacing around and waiting for that old dial tone.
It’s a modern art he’s made
of making people cry so low.
Lungs always feel the smallest
when some one takes their breath away.
With fists of fool’s gold,he’s the bearer of toasts
and he’ll drink all your wine and you will pay.
When the sun’s a blaze around him,
here the night has little left to do.
