lyrics

The faint golden light
Moves so quick through the trees
And the factories
Awake the night
Drop a silver thread
That I can follow

Oh god don’t leave
It’s a sight/sound
Not everyone can see
How the night wears a hole
In the places that you go

It’s only in your mind
In the places people
Change their face in time
To the screen
Tied to your breath
Wander this dying town
There’s nothing left

Down by the floodwalls
Broken glass, reflected buildings
Watch the hydro-tower sunset
And the night comes
Clean above the chemical river
Where the faint golden light was
A bird on the rooftop
Getting larger then leaving
In the fray of the dawn
In the cool of the evening
Your shadows grew long
Getting larger then leaving
How it painted the air
The changing of seasons
You were never quite there
Getting larger then leaving

In the river that’s flowing through dawn
In the small piece of time you’ve been given
You can take what you need and move on
Getting larger then leaving
In the factory night of your darkness
How we met in a dream that was moving
Saw a bird on the rooftop
Singing
