And there were future reflections
On the face and the hands On a green colored island On a primitive man
It was the future reflected
It felt familiar but new
A street was missing a building The kids had something to do
 There was a feeling the spirit was leaving Red like a marker So my tribe, with my knife Cut the heart from a lonely life

I saw patterns on floorboards Deep in the dust was a leader Someone was walking on floorboards Turned them from oak to cedar He can assess the situation I wrapped a string around my finger Into the forest with the young ones
I don't expect to be a winner 
But as long as you feel it
I'm a believer My heart is phosphor Sea rolls and death tolls Break the surface don't break my bones 
Off of the trail and off of your hands and
Onto a new plan
Is the cost to stay lost Forever in an empty skin
Pale and thin

If it's good, or if it's fortune, I can't tell
But pieces come together for some reason just as well Their guns couldn't see us
There's a sea outside my door
And one day I'll appreciate The rush of blood and the washed out beat of the shore 
And remember what it felt like
To be alone Sitting in the sunlight All alone
