This is the place that I miss the most but
This town is full of ghosts and I
Always feel like I am inside the throat of the devil here
And I can't I can't hide
It's the press of unseen stress and
Days that drift and days that stretch and
For no reason I can catch I'm in danger honey now

It's all around me
Time is winding down
So loudly
Give yourself a kiss if you can
Stay with it
Could you stay with it all night

Run me dry like a dragonfly you
Take me up water tower hill yeah
Locked up tight on a dripping night
You were out there somewhere still

Light pretends to feel my face and
Time tries to fool me
Well there's a tract house over this mountain top
That can hear me coming round

Closed doors
Boarded up houses
Half racks by the railroad track and
Those days are over now
You can never turn back
By the time I surround this place I'm
All out of malice
I'm falling into a state of grace
That I can't get out of

Bundled up against the elements I know
Time tried to fool you too
I'm climbing back over that picket fence
As the snow starts falling down down down
Little bells ring
Machine sparks sing
I'm going nowhere in december
See if I can fly
Fly it all night
All night all night long
I'm picking up I'm going strong
I keep pushing all night all night long
I'll sing it loud my one chord song
I can fake it all night all night long
These tracks go on and on and on
Yeah I can ride them all night all night all night all night long
Into the garden city I'm on the rise
