ruby red
these days the good guys wear black
and in your head there are no sunsets left
late at night when the, the wind is gone
and nobody moves and the, the truth is tied down
nobody sees what went wrong
the, the word is out
you can open your eyes

and it's been so long
and I've been waiting
for the streets to burn
and everywhere I go

no-one seems to know
which way to turn

lost under the sun
these tired feet they still run
one day they will come to the ocean

to the ocean

ruby red
the time has come
and in your head you know we are not so numb
and late at night when the, the wind is gone
and you can't breathe and the truth is tied down
nobody sees what went wrong
the, the word is out
you can open your eyes

and it's been so long
and I've been waiting
for the streets to burn
and everywhere I go

no-one seems to know
which way to turn
which way to turn

and it's been so long
and I've been waiting
for the streets to burn
and everywhere I go

no-one seems to know
which way to turn
which way to turn

lost under the sun
these tired feet they still run
one day they will come to the ocean

to the ocean

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this song...wow. Such a beautiful song. Perhaps it is about giving up on the entire human race (these days the good guys wear black), and a feeling of disgust towards the way everyone lives life (no one seems to know which way to turn), without the ability to escape after revolving in circles of questions, searching for answers (these tired feet they still run, one day they will come to the ocean).
