lyrics

I'm writing letters to my dead colleagues 
Pollinating their memories
They are reborn upon these words that I adore
They never died inside, you see.
I marked a path across the ocean in a storm
I walked along the open sea
I followed footprints back to the shore
The person waiting there was me

Taught myself the history of my mind
My conscience slept my memory only lied

And from Neil's harbour I saw the edge of time
It smiled upon me and stretched its spine
The crooked houses placed along the shore
Hold the answers through unlocked doors
Coal Stove breakfast and a bottle of beer
Stale bread and a view of the pier
I woke up dizzy as the sky turned gray
Looked out the window I was far away.

Taught myself the history of my mind
My conscience slept, my memory only lied.

Ode to a lonely ghost
On board from a lonely coast
Stretched across the land
Like a fire burning softly in my hand.

I've got a handgun in the hollow of a tree
And three rusty bullets waiting to be set free
I take solace in my mind and fire them into the heart of the land
Enraptured by the Sunset at the end

I am bleeding Hallelujah on a a train to George's Roadhouse with my friends.
