Never let go, light up the sky This time I’ve not for gotten anything The murder cage, five golden hours A change of light and this projector on It’s all over town and hot enough for June This is every thing I see Do you know this voice? Catch it if you can The man outside and the reckoning The southern star and the high bright sun I was happy here but night must fall Girl on a motorcycle, negatives It’s all over town, this journey into night It is everything I see Such a strange affair For this projected man It is shadow It is light It is movement It is time It is all Let it run Let it run
They are playing that stupid song The one about trees and surfing They play it endlessly It goes on and on and on and on CHORUS The room is upside down Everything tells me to leave My mind is all mixed up There’s nothing I choose to believe They are playing those stupid games They are hiding each other’s possessions Sometimes they bury them out in the yard And everyone is grabbing the shovels They are telling all those meaningless jokes You know, the one’s that go on forever There are no punchlines and nobody laughs They make all the noises you mistake it for laughter They are tasting that blood in the air They are sensing the weakness in others Fall on their prey and devour them whole They are stealing all the coats from the bedrooms You take all this in and keep on taking it in And the party can go on forever It is a shiny spinning circular thing It goes on and on and on and on
Lighthouse 04:21
I stand on this land Scan my horizon I stretch out my hand Trace a shape with my hand I will be the lighthouse for you Wait for your signal Watch for change in this sky I sense you out there I stand and watch and I wait So I'll be the lighthouse for you And I'll be the lighthouse for you When navigation lets you down Just open your eyes and you’ll see my sign When the night falls all around you Eyes wide open and see my sign When you’re out of your depth and out of reach Rise above the waves to find the shoreline Throw away your compass and your chart Eyes wide open and see my sign
Don's Reel 02:53
My babe she won’t go down where the cactus grow Oh no she won’t go down near Mexico My babe she don’t croon, howls to the silver moon My babe shouts her tune, gonna be home real soon My babe my oh my, hides from the bluest sky My babe she won’t cry, till the sands of time run dry My babe she’s so fair, ivory skin and a chocolate stare Heaven knows she’ll take you there, when she lets down her hair
