there in the strained
dust cloud of your eyes, I'm set in
that sun again
far from the day, we touched down in islands set in
that sun again
when you said you'd know when...
without blowin'
but you like the heat and all your money too
there in restrained
a dust cloud and I'm up set in
that sun again

so turn the lights out
and don't look
and do the things
you read about in weathered books
i'll shape the mountain's heavy hood
prepare to feel for what's to be

a time for disgrace
we've lost ground and I'm up settin'
that sun again
the riders are forgiven
but it's over
before you know

so turn the lights down
and don't move
and undo the things
you read about in heaven's book
I'll wait for the night up on the roof
and tell, tell you what I feel

so turn the lights out
from these golden heights down to the city
the city don't know which way it's sprawling
it isn't pretty
i really don't go much more
(really don't go much more)
