lyrics

LETHAL WHITE HORSE


The lights from city towers
an arrow aimed o'er the waters
reflecting sparkling shadows
of the landscape of waste

Who waves out the windows
who stacks drift from the shore
Who, when we sleep, will carry us

We'd hold out for ceasefires
we'd wear diamonds in the woods
if we believed these pastures of plenty were still free

Count all the blessings
I've got plans to see the ocean
I've got plans to sing about love someday

past the horizon beyond the horizon
past where the border is supposed to be

Roll the fiery papers
to cliffs, head smashed-in
raise weight against my brawn

We'd heal every calloused hand
we'd drink from pure river
if we believed these pastures of plenty were still free

past the horizon beyond the horizon
past where the border is supposed to be

So the ride of a lethal white horse
shout brave words to my back
The death I'm racing won't ever quell my temper
so pray me a prayer that I don't falter

Is it blissful to know the time?
Was it glorious to run down the day?
