lyrics

Our home lies beneath the winter
You told me under desert skies
We must be strong and show no weakness
When our nation goes to die

All the moles have gone in hiding
All the bridges have washed out
This was a century of building
No one wrote about

We were lost, lost, lost
When we made gods of every one
Lost, lost, lost
Inside the all consuming plan

You must learn to give up everything
You ever thought you would gain
There is no glory in the slaughter
There is only blood and pain

You will learn these lessons slowly
You’ll slowly rise with the sun
You’ll pass through gales of restitution
You’ll turn your collar to the wind

Where you’ll be lost, lost, lost
Just a ray in sunset lands
Lost, lost, lost
Erased by your demands

Will you meet me on the highway
Contemplate where we have been
I’ve walked this road a thousand times
I’ve never found where I belong

I thought that you were singing for me
That shows how far I have to go
These maps are all since torn and faded
I’m heading east to see the snow

Where I’ll be lost, lost, lost
In an old boxcar by the bay
Lost, lost, lost
I’ll search the remains of the day

Long ago and far away
