Thorn trees pleading with the sky
Lightening don’t strike it passes by
Fugitive don’t struggle any more
Why scale the wall when you can walk out the door

I may have the patience of a saint
But a guide to the promised land I aint
Though we know that all roads lead to Rome
Stabbing Ceaser’s something we’ve outgrown

And I’m waiting and I’m waiting and I’m waiting for that long train to pass

Little do I know what’s on your mind
Feel like I’m a passenger left behind
Covering my tracks up all with sand
So the devil cannot find me and my idle hands

I always left well enough alone
I fit my corner like a socket fit a bone
Had my fill and never wanted more than this

Time to lose that helicopter day
Amputated memory hold sway
Scan the skies and let the raptors be
Wait up on the platform here with me


from Left with the Skies, released May 1, 2017
