We're character actors from the Tower of Babel Bewildered, burnt out, hardly able To sit astride the high wire cable It's hard to balance, a little unstable.
Through broken eyes and contact lenses Watched you draw your future tenses See kisses of flame blow out of your lips You're back telling me your Apocalypse.
Don't get me wrong, I'll be strong When the slow burn sunset come along You've gotta stay the night I gotta think that you might.
We've tried a handful of bills and a handful of pills We've tried making movies from a volume of stills But the words fell like hailstones, bouncing at our feet Covering our feelings with a frozen sheet.
A chance to move, I take a shot I get cold you get hot We look outside, lyin' awake See birds breaking surface on a silent lake.
But don't get me wrong, I'll be strong When I'm back on the Isle of Avalon Don't get me wrong, I'll be strong When the slow burn sunset come along You've got to stay the night I've got to think that you might.
Don't try to make it easy, it'll cut you down to size Darlin' we've got to trust in something We're shooting down our skies Shooting down our skies.
