or
Son Volt

Love is the pavement
With spit in your heart
Slow diamond's no laughter
Sweep the hellhound trail

Translate the faces
Wash off the dust
Smoke plume twilight
American tears

Prairie-burnt eyes tell the hell and break through the lens
Feed the buildings by the coast a flagrant dance
Wounded in the world by a single twist of hate
It's all over now
You're headed for the atmosphere

Pick up the blessings
Meet the new sky
Supposed to live up to
The speculation din

Getting that old time feeling again
Madmen on both sides of the fence

Melody of riot in the wilderness of oxygen
Mercy on the waterfall mist
In the middle-class sea
