Track Name: Sympathetic Sway
Here’s the last sign of open road
Oh there it goes
And for the right night a backslide show
Oh does it glow
They’re keeping warm and call for themselves

Fold the map hide the way you know and oh never loan
It’s not the first waterhole you’ve shown while skipping stones
So innocent when all came for their open halls tinted walls
They clipped the last candle wick too low that’s one in a row

And who sent their health to the honest mind standing up alone half the time
On my shelf lay the waiting wishing they could say

Within a day their mess had been up and out of grey
Now would they pay a coin that lost the touch of sympathetic sway in front of me

Wrong signs make feet unkind heading for a sight unseen
Lost up in those parting feathers the next opening

So if the weather calls our show so minimal
Stretch out like a pole the roots will grow a whole centerfold
Let’s have the whole opera sing we’ll try keeping clean
And what if all the wrecks fill up in tow the goal as you know

You’ll have to fall on the wheel that rolls my way and opens every door
And become those eyes that stuck with me
While cutting all ties you bought for free
This happening surely won’t serve the enemy
