if I could find the darkness
there would be true night for me
& the stars that hang in brightness
would be too stark to see
& the moon has whispered ages
that she is coming to my throne
that to her this soul of fighting
is a nest to make her home
so I’ll hold her like an angel
I’ll hold her like the sea
and the ways I would possess her
are the ways she slips from me

it’s a long rise..rise to the edge & I’m gone

these trains they move like islands
got my ear against the tracks
I’m rollin.. rollin..
I’m never coming back
‘cause this land is cut like diamonds
& sold as quick as bought
I trade the rain for steel
& the days my heart forethought
I have always cheated
the death that came for me
with a song of someone bleeding
and a star too stark to see

it’s a long rise..rise to the edge & I'm gone

so if I could find the darkness
there would be true night for me
and the stars that hang in brightness
would be too stark to see
somewhere there’s lightning
hidden within your storm
I could die in your eye
but this radio keeps us warm
the river stole your secrets
the wind bore out my lines
now your body is my temple
& this moon I take for mine

it’s a long rise..rise to the edge & I'm gone
