Album: Monsters of Folk (2009)
  • Putting on my power, righteous as a rose
    Dynamite the mountain, now I'm walking up the road
    The love we made at gunpoint wasn't love at all
    The dancing in the valley, the moons is the mirrored ball
    Blew open my mind, now it's an empty room
    Swinging in the hammock, dogs are walking across the roof
    I watch you braid your hair, you're from another time
    When the earth wasn't so angry
    And god was on our side

    Searching west and east
    And all points in-between
    Underneath the lines of thought
    You're there and then you're not

    The mayans stole tomorrow, hid it underground
    We come with heavy magnets but it still hasn't been found
    I'm sweating out my secrets in the temazcal
    They're screaming in the calle that there are stars about to fall

    Looking through the trees
    Cities and the seas
    Things we've seen
    Ovnis on the lawn
    They're there and then they're gone
    There and then they're gone

    Searching west and east
    All points in between
    And underneath the hand of god
    You're there and then you're not Writer/s: CONOR M OBERST
