lyrics

Doing time under a wild black sky
And it seems of my own making
As I lay back in the wheat
And the clouds are undulating
Like breakers on the beach

You know the date, meet me at the place
Where the fence posts pierce the ground
Russian thistles gather 'round
And I know we cannot stay
But my hands they shake

I wanna be brave for you
Show you all my cards
I wanna behave for you
But I find it really hard
I'm going to prick my thumb
Press it up to yours
I'm showing my loyalty
Blood brothers joined by blood

Any man put in our place
Would have to find it unbelieving
That the sun could disappear
Though I know somewhere it's beaming
Like a cruel and grinding grin

Grim days, I look across the field
To where the sunlight used to sing
And the sheaths of wheat they shone
Just like little cherubs wings
But the future now is cold
And I've found my resolve
