lyrics

tunnel vision, stricken tongue, clinging disbelief
bloody minded fortune sung, grim fidelity

taste of copper fills your mouth
path was paved with green
spirits linger on your breath
like worn out sympathy

guts of Europe, hungry ride, joined the wildest chase
innocence and ghostly lights, limits of disgrace

calling it down around your ears
conjure it up and it appears
or somehow learn to walk away

shadows clamour in the dim forests of the mind
pawing at a phantom limb under foreign eyes

answer forming on your lips
window in the rain
drew the letters in the mist
words not fit to say

calling it down around your ears
conjure it up and it appears
or somehow learn to walk away
walk away
walk away
