the ghost of a face is my one enemy
peering in on me when i sleep to deep.
everything's familiar in these tiny cities
nothing tastes as bitter as finding your hands empty.
you can lead a horse to water, beat it till it's dead
all that make believing, riddles in your head.

"go get your dark horse. i'll get my gun. we'll go riding where the sun don't rise."

"now whose got the big guns? now who holds the rain in the palm of his hand?"


from Voodoo Moon, track released October 25, 2011
