Deep In The Shadows

2017

Standing on the edge of town
Watching the walls come down
30 miles to Babylon
Better be pushing on
Red fires light the sky
Propagated alibis
Reaching for a stretched out hand
Heading to a promised land

Deep lines on an angel’s face
Blood stains on the human race
Can’t take it back again
Deep in the shadows
Sacred ground is war torn
Dirty cops on the bullhorn
Where do we go from here

Searching for the middle ground
Wooden ships run aground
Looking for a righteous one
Underneath the midnight sun
Blues gone dark and rogue
Devils at the crossroads
Heat stroke radiates
Open up the floodgates

Deep lines on an angel’s face
Blood stains on the human race
Can’t take it back again
Deep in the shadows
Sacred ground is war torn
Dirty cops on the bullhorn
Where do we go from here
