lyrics

the leaves are green against the red mud
the trees are crouching on the ground
the morning's clear and very quiet
the signal's cutting in and out
what have I left that's still not finished?
have I been fully understood?
I pressed the ink into the paper
and I saw that it was good

halfway between Raton
and Las Vegas, New Mexico

amid the dry parts of the Old West
where the quiet families settled down
somebody's smoking in the basement
somebody's too scared to reach out
you made it here through droughts and famine
by the grace of strong blood in your veins
it matters that you use the right words
so take your time with what you say
