lyrics

I am out on the wire gathering lightning for my fire,
I'm a magnet full of shrapnel from our war.
And I'm rolling holy boulders through the muddy fields of spring
looking down into the Earth to find your spark.

I heard you tumbled from your tower like a hundred setting suns
your unknown wonders taking root beneath the dirt.
And you swore no one would miss you as you fell through every breath,
always to fall and never rise was your intent.

Now I'm out here on my own
collecting remnants of the flowers you had sown
into the soil of clay and stone
quid pro quo for flesh and bone.

I'm pressing pedals into pages in the foggy morning dew,
reading signs and signals in their hues.
And I'm chasing every envy that you scattered to the breeze,
I'm hunting riddles that you burned into the leaves.

And I'm out here on my own
collecting remnants of the flowers you had sown
into the soil of clay and stone
quid pro quo for flesh and bone.

As the prairie grass beckons in the cold and lonesome wind
I'm a ship pulling anchor to set sail.
From the outer shores of heaven to the endless shoals of hell,
you wrote the prose; it's up to me to tell the tale.

And I'm out here on my own
collecting remnants of the flowers you had sown
into the soil of clay and stone
quid pro quo for flesh and bone.
