The solar wind falls
And the night turns cherry red
And off the brick wall
Reflecting all the things we said

The silver spaceships
They hold your head in the cradle dawn
The silver rake slips
On the rocks in a desert song

And with the boat man
And in the road when the rain comes down
And where the bride stands
Another ghost in an abandoned town

And with the power lines
And with the dust and the evening sky
And with the mountain lion
It’s in the desert where the seagulls fly

And on the front line
There’s a woman and a child
And for the first time
They light a fire and they’re running wild

And when the dog runs
And when the oceans all turn black
And with the red sun
And we won’t find our way back
We won’t go back

The sky’s a blindfold
The child sleeps, I can hear the sound
And when the earth’s cold
And I’m the last one on the ground
I’ll find god
