lyrics

Beyond my own thoughts are strings of cacti lined along a vanish line,
Streaking past periphery as they blur into the mile marker signs,

We are bristling with youth and hurtling towards tragedy and scars,
As the desert air surrounds and we recount aloud how we each received ours,

We'll meet the horizon where the sun goes down and deify the turnpikes's twisting lines,
No thunderclap or man could remove our kingly crowns,
We are drinking dandelions,

Beyond all I know is a serenity of houses, farms and wives,
And everlasting souls arranged in pairs and moving through each other's lives,

We may not be men but we are armored, we are shielded, we have pride,
We race around concentric circles burning all the homes where we reside.
