Written by Pat Book
Performed by Heroes Wear Helmets

There’s a splinter in my brain that’s a long way from home
For quite some time it’s been the only part of you I’ve known

My mind is always wandering towards an western star
a million miles as the crow flies, a million miles too far
despite it's dying 70,000 years ago
it seems i can't say no

There’s a sliver of recognition that for years and years has grown
my hands remain as empty as my face has blankly shone

I’ve never been that strong, but when it comes to hanging on
my grip on you has been tenacious
on the border of predacious
your future’s in the clouds, mine’s pinned against a wall
so every day I hope and pray that neither of us fall

I’m sorry and you don’t know why
but it’s been a long time coming
the action is inaction
decision by indecision
any way you look at it, I’m completely in the wrong
I’ve had my mind in the clouds for entirely too long
