Falling tired and desperate
Through the brittle cracks of the city.
Road map wiped clean
Bodies up three days
Caffeine and apple pie
Cheap fuel for cheap men.
Singing songs to earn a buck
Taken in by fallen women
A warm bed is a dream
A swift affair is paradise.
Sent back into the real world
With kiss and a dollar
Following the sun to the future.
Watch time drift through crimson shades.
Catch the scent of summer
Dreams caught in a young girl’s hair.
Hum a tune and give it her name
Get a tattoo to regret down the line
One letter could mean anything.
The illusion lives on
Day becomes night becomes day becomes night
Becomes a fantastic land of music and love.
