Black As Hell and White as a Ghost

lyrics

We slipped through the space between waking and dreaming
Rubbing the stars from our eyes
We came to find something that hovered between us
The inhabitants all looked surprised

We put in our oars and we slid down the jet stream
And set off our flares on the way
We conjured the light up from out of the darkness
But the dark clouds are heading my way
Oh the dark clouds are heading my way

We’re up to our necks in the medicine cabinet
It’s such a familiar tune
The dude in the range rover just isn’t havin’ it,
He’s rubbing the salt in our wounds

We labored all night in a black crystal mountain
Then came home with nothing to say
On silvery stallions we shot through the canyon
But the dark clouds are heading my way
Oh the dark clouds are heading my way
