In the pale of
Whatever half love you have left
For the olden days
Would you wake up
Or trace the plumb line to your death
You're finally seen

What has love done
But to drag a dead deer by its horns
From the passing lane
Just to drive on
Neither to arrive or to escape
Not to save someone

You belong to the cause of our belief
Pull your heels from the farthest corner you've been in
You belong to us
You belong to the cause
You were wrong
I don't know how

We were young once
We were wilder in our boots
In the race to fame
Now we've dried up
We no longer have our youth to sell
From the penny stage

We you mine?
You were never the kind to call me yours
You were born of fate
So carry on
Carry all your desire to a flame
To an unnamed voice

You belong to the cause of our belief
Pull your heels from the farthest place they carry you
You belong to us
You belong to the cause
You were wrong
I don't know how

Black shadows
Back battles you have held
In your lungs too long
You were searching
I was purchasing a flight
To an old luck town

No martyrs
No fire starters
No loose wheels
No healer saints
No wise words
No birds who burned us in our clothes
No rose parade
