Bloodflow Lyrics

Her eyes are closed now
That final breath is near
She lets go of my hand
And I'm falling to a sea of tears

And search for the trail that we 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
And take route and pull me further in

Long and long and longer it takes
Good luck's gone and there's no more brakes
Just the ground beneath that shakes and gives way

Swallowed up home
There ain't much now I can pull
No stuntman surprises or Houdini that disguises
For death defying escape

Avoid the tap on the shoulder
From that one with the long black cape

Just to see those eyes of her shine
Is worth any sum or length of time
That would fill that space
Where her love once flowed

But the more I resist
The further and further I drift
Get swept out in the riptide
Where my heart in me wants
To lie 'neath the waves of sorrow and tears

Sink to the bottom and linger there the rest of my years
Walk among the mild sea bones
Of my fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers
Feel their blood flowing, they send the soul its way
