Cloud puncher
Sky stealer
Earth falling
Early warning

Deep mountain
Tall highway
Gasoline rainbow

Beats working
Beats dying
Slow rising
Where you hiding? (Where you hiding?)
Where you hiding? (Where you hiding?)
Where you hiding? (Where you hiding?)

And a skinny fella comes out of nowhere
The only moment on this horizon
Gives us something to fix our eyes on
Something nagging, almost blinding
Gives us something to fix our eyes on

Weird recollections
Life flashing before you
Stumble off again
Into the mirage and the sunset
Into the mirage and the sunset
Into the mirage and the sunset

Drinking, dancing, sex, high-living
They don't seem so sinful now
We dwindle in the atom age
Into the mirage and the folded page
Into the mirage and the sunset
Into the mirage and the sunset
Into the mirage and the sunset
Into the mirage and the sunset

Guilt, remorse and loneliness
All are part of dying
This is as good as-
This is as good as it's gonna get
Between the mirage and the sunset
Between the mirage and the sunset
Between the mirage and the sunset

No taboos, nothing to lose
Modern dramas, electric storms
A trunk in the attic, a moment of panic
Daily routine, the faces freeze
Hearts of gold, hearts of gold
I never thought it would end
I never thought it would end
All my friends, all my friends
Where the fuck did they go?

In my tent, I sit and tremble
While outside the dust storms rage
I thought I had found an oasis
But it was just a muddy stinking hole
