lyrics

Nightflier

A walk on egg shells gets easier
When I hold my breath and peace
But every now and then I can't help but
fall and
I have to crawl on my knees

Nightflier
Come take me higher
Can't wait 'til when
You're down again

Hey Nightflier
Burns like a fire
Where've you been?
'Cause I'm down again

I hear the crystals of carillon
Chiming "what a friend we have"
The empty streets begin to echo with
music
And sirens and my sawdust laugh

Nightflier
Can't get much higher
Come see me when
You're down again

Hey Nightflier
Walk 'cross the wire
Where've you been?
'Cause I'm down again

And the hymns of agnostics remain
In the counterpoint of the rain
Calling again, even refrain
They're calling you

There are no walls here, no chains, no
bars
They tell us we can walk out anytime
But my weakness builds the strongest of
prisons
Hard like a diamond
Locked in my mind and
It makes my only hope a crime

Nightflier
Come take me higher
Can't wait 'til when
You're down again

Hey Nightflier
Walk 'cross the wire
Where've you been?
'Cause I'm down again

Hey Nightflier
Can't get much higher
Come see me when
You're down again
Where have you been?
I'm down
