Her eyes are closed now that final breath is near
She lets go of my hand and I fall into a sea of tears
Search for the trail that we were both riding
Lost sometime ago

Now I'm stranded on the mountain's edge
And there's only one way back down...
And down I go
Into the ground where the bad seeds are sown

Take root and pull me further in
Long and long and longer it takes
Good luck's gone and there's no more breaks
Just the ground beneath that shakes and gives way

Swallowed up whole, there ain't much now I can pull
No stunt man surprises
Or houdini-like disguises
For death defying escape

Avoid the tap on the shoulder
From that one in the long black cape
Just to see those eyes of hers shine
Is worth any sum or length of time

That would fill up that space
Where her love once flowed
But the more I resist
The further and further out I drift

Get swept out in the rip tide
Where part of me wants to lie
'neath the waves of sorrow and tears
Sink to the bottom and linger there

The rest of my tears
Walk amongst the mossy bones
Of my fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers
Feel their blood flow away
