lyrics

maybe if I were just a little stronger
if I could stay a little longer
I could see this through

then maybe I could fly just like the songbird
spread my wings and travel skyward
I could fly with you

lately I've been acting like a sinner
flying south just for the winter
coming home just for the food

and maybe we could take a flight together
you with your wings of leather
me with mine of wood

under black sky
steel moon
blue planet fading out of view
warm nights
cold truths
and slow death in the afternoon

hazy, all the visions that I'm craving
how you dip so slow and lazy
while your heart jumps like a gun

and maybe we could take this dance together
wear your foxtail and your feathers
and I'll be drunk on rum

under black sky
steel moon
blue planet fading into view
cold nights
hot truths
and slow death in the afternoon
