Desperation Song

Desperation Song

Carbon Leaf

Here I'm debating time, I'm waiting
Come the wake
Free fall the cannonball volcanic
shatters on the lake

You settle down,
Where you runnin' to?
What else can you prove?
How many, many more until you lose?
You thought a better plan could
Shake this shadow land
This frozen tundra hand

[Chorus]
I'm turning it from shade to light
Hold it up to candlelight,
Roaring into firelight,
Scorching up the charlatans
Until it's city wide
All the people mobilize,
Nothing left to polarize
And nothing left to fake

Ring around the lake.
Ring around the lake.

Right on time, will you stay
Through the pouring rain?
Right on time, through the night,
Your laughter is my light
Right on time, desperation song

Dear I have missed your sigh
since crystal skies moved on
Peer out through shadow's doubt
I had no passion all along

You settle down. where you running to?
What else can you prove?
Is this all a game?
Was this all a ruse?
I've waited by the phone.
Cold as river stone
Anxiety. Alone.

[Chorus]

Ring around the lake.
Ring around the lake.

Right on time, will you stay
Through the pouring rain?
Right on time, through the night,
Your laughter is my light
Right on time, desperation song
Right on time, desperation song

[Chorus]

Right on time, will you stay
Through the pouring rain?
Right on time, through the night,
Your laughter is my light
Right on time, desperation song
Right on time, desperation song
