lyrics

Could we all run rabid
Through a dusky autumn plane?
My bones will turn to sand
When my dear muse forgets my name

I may not be a chaste man
But I care for what i do
And I only breathe in desperately
In a jail cell built for too

Whats to make of rising tides?
When to say enough?
The memory will coincide
And call the jokers bluff

If shake hands is out of line
And Dylans riddles thin
I don't believe that I will find
The answer in the wind

I summon my friends to the dancing hall
I summon you all, I summon you all
And if I die before I wake
My word is the strangest to take
For the night, but only the night

D.C. will fall short again
And the war will remain the same
Like the junkies on their side walks
Who plead all day for change

I guess I'm still a man cub
Only lusting for a laugh
I only stab my own back
I only drink on my behalf

What's to make of falling trees?
When to close my eyes?
Who will be the one for me?
Why do i realize?

If bowing low is out of line
and Segars lyrics grim
I don't believe that i will find
I'm running against the wind

I summon my friends to the dancing hall
I summon you all, I summon you all
And if i die before i wake
My words the strangest to take
For the night, but only the night
For the night, but only the night
