Paved in bone, blessed are
These highways that carry us home
Pale white eyes
Like children we desperately reach for the sky
Singin, "everything dies but what then?
Everything dies but is that the end"

My brother is your brother too
Teach her of shame show her love
Betray all her trust, teach her to love
Deep in that coma blue sky

I saw my life passing me by
Feeling the fires recede
And let that deep coma blue sky wash over me
Blessed be the highways that carry us on
Through the desert and into the sea

Well he picks all the roses that grow by the overpass
And gathers them all round my feet
There's no funeral lullaby, sad goodbye lullaby tune
My daddy's prayin those 6 string prayers
Because even heaven sings the blues
Maybe all our skin will turn to dust
Baby all our skin will turn to dust
And leave our hearts behind
