when you feel it you won’t forget
this strange thing our selfish selves like
to think about, and never do

don’t forget that it doesn’t end
where are the lines drawn?
haven’t you seen the fire?

but still you hear me strummin'
and maybe you feel nothing
when you feel it you won’t forget
“a tear of blood is the best we get”
yes, the ruler’s a fool
but the roles we play are more important
more than ever maybe

ah your eyes, the lights in your eyes
I’ll miss you tonight
"I know the desert’s ten times greater at night
and I know that mother and her girl can’t have safety"
the dust settles in
