From the album Consider Your Cage

Lyrics

This is the Fight

And after thinking it over
I’m coming down on the side where
The wound is white
Get a little kick in the teeth tonight
Sure as sandfire into glass
You’d change your combination
Hide the blush as you walk right past
Nobody’s ever gonna know

That I was the soul
And you were the sole survivor

So if this doesn’t feel
Like a famous final reel
Catching the light
We’re gonna make it right

A simple deconstruction
Watch parts, black asphalt baking in the sun
Waking up overrun
There was a time, my dear
When I just hassled Houston, skipped stones
In my bad boy gear
Lucky if I would ever know

That you were the soul
Cooking up a real revival

So if this doesn’t feel
Like a famous final reel
Catching the light
We’re gonna make it right

Why don’t you think it over?
Pick up a little midnight, shakes as you
Roll it down the line
This is yours, this is mine
A collection of pieces
Too hot to touch and brilliant in the dark
I think everybody knows

You are the soul
You are my soul
Everyone knows

So if this doesn’t feel
Like a famous final reel
Catching the light
We’re gonna make it right
Catching the light
We’re gonna make it right

This is the fight
