The Horizon Has Been Defeated

Album: On And On (2003)
  • The horizon has been defeated
    By the pirates of the new age
    Alien casinos
    Well maybe its just time to say
    The things can go bad
    And make you want to run away
    But as we grow older
    The troubles just seems to stay

    Future complications
    In the strings between the cans
    But no prints can come from fingers
    If machines become our hands
    And then our feet become the wheels
    And then the wheels become the cars
    And then the rigs begin to drill
    Until the drilling goes too far

    Things can go bad
    And make you want to run away
    But as we grow older
    The horizon begins to fade, fade, fade
    Fade away

    Thingamajigsaw puzzled
    Anger don't you step too close
    Because people are lonely
    And only animals with fancy shoes
    Hallelujah zig zag nothing
    Misery it's on the loose
    Because people are lonely
    And only animals with too many tools
    That can build all the junk that we sell
    Oh sometimes man, make you want to yell that

    Things can go bad
    And make you want to run away
    But as we grow older
    The horizon begins to fade away
    Fade away
    Fade, fade, fade
    Fade, fade, fade Writer/s: Jack Hody Johnson
