"Wings Wetted Down" as written by and Bouchard/bouchard....
Flights of black horseman soar over churches
Pursued by an army of birds in the rain
None of them can see the clouds, the polished wings don't care
Animal ways through the hazy dreams full of pain

Wings wetted down, stumbling on the ground
It all turns around, in the end
The voices sound deadly, sometimes I hear
Echoes of empires, spread throughout the sky

Wings wetted down, stumbling on the ground
It all turns around, in the end

Flights of black horseman soar over churches
Pursued by an army of birds in the rain
Wings wetted down, stumbling on the ground
It all turns around, in the end

    Song ComparisonI've just noticed that the verse of this song is virtually identical to that of Neil Young's "Words (Between the Lines of Age)", the last song on his 1972 album "Harvest". I guess the Bouchard brothers must have been fans -- the resemblance is too close to be a coincidence.
