The air is filled with dust and smoke
The cities burned down long ago
Washed in fear we salvage hopes
We walk the same abandoned road

I dance to the here and the now
I dance to the bullets against the ground
We live in the flicker tonight
We chase the waves of dawn 'til we die

The vultures circle overhead
They heard every word I said
We search for ghosts that roam our past
Revel in dreams that never last

I wear a bulls-eye on my back
A scrap of metal in my chest
I live or die with every step
The gloom is brooding in the west
How many lives have I got left?
Just leave my corpse to ride the desert wind
Just lay me dead never return again
