RED (2000 MILES AWAY FROM THE FAIR)

Awash with the blood

that falls from the tree

we burn with the fire

the earth and the seed

the fuel on our bodies

and dust in the air

(were) 2000 miles away from the fair

 

Red is the powder

covers me completely

like a thick woven blanket

in the chill of the night

the interior silence

you learn as you go

2000 miles away from the show

 

The country is old

the stories is long

The desert wind howls a sad and uncomfortable song

head up to the peak

take in all that is there

you’re 2000 miles away from the fair 

 

Cry beloved cry

can you see it through your blinds

cry cry cry

 

The wisdom you hear

bounces off (round) the rock walls

carries cross the mountains and down to the streams

where the lay of the land

it mirrors the sky

2000 miles away from the lies

2000 miles away from the fair

2000 miles away from the fair

 

ROGUE WAVE

The boats are on the harbour

the fires upon the shore

distant lights they call

 

We swim the troubled ocean

and wait for the rogue wave

to come wash us away

wash us away

 

We rush with rage insane

from the cliff down to the sea

the song will come right back to me

 

Loosely hold your worries

throw them to the wind

all we can do is try follow our heart try follow our heart

 

The singing wails the whole night through

its got another week to go

measured, honest, true

 

Loosely hold your worries

throw them to the wind

all we can do is try follow our heart
