lyrics

take from me this golden arrow
and relieve the fallen sparrow's wing
when will we fly again?
i miss the city breeze
you got the best of me
the laughter and the soul

take a turn you know they'll follow
down the road all grey & hollow

gravity... every day gets heavier
the ground's up to our knees
pretend there are wings attached
to every broken thing
to lift us above the weeds
a shadow to the stone

take the path no one will follow
down the road all bent with sorrow

all these faces... no reaction
empty cages... all abandoned
stuck within a Kubrick picture
there is only one way out
the flame is nearly gone
but the fire it's our own
to tend alone

take the road no one will follow
to a place no one will bother
