Far From Any Road

Album: Singing Bones (2003)
  • From the dusty mesa
    Her looming shadow grows
    Hidden in the branches of the poison creosote
    She twines her spines up slowly
    Towards the boiling sun
    And when I touched her skin
    My fingers ran with blood

    In the hushing dusk under a swollen silver moon
    I came walking with the wind to watch the cactus bloom
    And strange hands halted me, the looming shadows danced
    I fell down to the thorny brush and felt the trembling hands

    When the last light warms the rocks
    And the rattlesnakes unfold
    Mountain cats will come to drag away your bones

    And rise with me forever
    Across the silent sand
    And the stars will be your eyes
    And the wind will be my hands Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
