At the dawn of our confidence
I kissed Harper goodbye,
took the last boat to America,
its ports a one way line

In a velvet city
I lay down
The whiskey and its poets
tame the winter for some crown

I played the prophet
baring a black rose,
in a carnival counting its wires
such wilted lines they hold
What a lie they've told
What a lie they've told

But even a prophet
can do no good
in a temple of seekers
who think that love's the only cure
