I can't control this flesh and blood
That's wrapped around my bones
It moves beneath me like a river
Into the great unknown
I stepped onto the moving stairs
Before I could tie my shoes
Pried a harp out of the fingers of a renegade
Who lived and died the blues

And his promise made was never clear
It just carve itself in me
All I saw was frost inside my hand
On the night he said to me

Someday
We'll live like horses
Free rein
From you old iron fences
There's more ways than one
To regain your senses
Break out the stalls
And we'll live like horses

We're the victims of the heartbreak
That kept us short of breath
Trapped above these bloodless streets
Without a safety net
I stood in line to join the tribe
One more customer of fate
Claimed a spoke in the wheel of the wagon train
On the road to the golden gate
On the flat dry dessert I jumped ship
It just made sense to me
I've spent too long in the belly of the beast
And now I shall be free

Someday
We'll live like horses
Free rein
From you old iron fences
There's more ways than one
To regain your senses
Break out the stalls
And we'll live like horses
