lyrics

The warming air dries the night rain
I hear you calling
Still unsure of which way to go
The stars start falling
It was the wind not mystery that passed through
And kept those shadows moving
Living through accelerated days
The words just get in the way

It felt like walking into a wall
Walking into a wall with my eyes closed

Grinding tires against the sand
Running the same track
As realities stretch across the hill
Never sure which one will come back
Temperature’s up 20 degrees
Senses spinning way too fast
People walk by as your voice recedes
Never even thinking to ask

It felt like walking into a wall
Walking into a wall with my eyes closed

Still nothing but sunlight on the table
Again the spirit denied
Rearranging the pieces won’t focus the blur
Just point me at the sky
We’ll have to start again and again
Now’s not the time to ask why
Just recall the faintest glimpse
In high places standing by

It felt like walking into a wall
Walking into a wall with my eyes closed
