Dust storm whispered in my ear your turn to take the bullseye
While the fulsome praise of jack straw crows came knocking at my door
After twenty years I hung my spurs on the perch of telephone wires
They uses to drag in Cuban heels with true north in their compass

Wandering in circles
With nothing left to lose
Carved in a mountain
Where a pale horse writes
The bible is truth

CAN YOU READ MY PALMS
CAN YOU READ MY HEART
CAN YOU READ MY LIPS
CAN YOU READ MY THOUGHTS
WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES
AND I RIDE LIKE THE DEVIL'S SON

With Vultures flying over head
And pecking at my carcass
They cauterize those highway lanes
That lead us out of darkness

Wandering in circles
With nothing left to lose
Carved in a mountain
Where a pale horse writes
The bible is truth

CAN YOU READ MY PALMS
CAN YOU READ MY HEART
CAN YOU READ MY LIPS
CAN YOU READ MY THOUGHTS
WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES
AND I RIDE LIKE THE DEVIL'S SON
