Dark City

I walk the old town tonight
I know the walls remain hollow
I’m a prisoner, a rat in a cage
and the nights, they conquer every day
and I dreamed I broke free of this maze
I walked out into the night and I stayed
and for the first time I felt the grace of the falling rain

Neath the light of the moon
I wait for my evening bus
To take me for a few, with you, through time and space
Awake! Awake to the distant valleys of my dreams
Until my eyes open to the morning and I regress to sleep

Do my eyes cast a shadow over my soul?
As I write these checks and blindly post my stamps?
Oh to put it all down now and break through the wall
And you and me, we’d breathe in that promised land
Close your eyes now. Take my hand.
