We could hop a train
to take us far up north
far beyond the things
we've been hiding from
and i can promise you
a life of noble truth
all the things we had
are things we never needed at all

dust and bone
breaking the mold
how i'd like to be
removed from here
in a chemical spill
a thousand colors swirl
how i'd like to be
how i'd like to be

does the sun still shine like it did before
i hear the summer's nice
and in the winter it still snows
does it make you think
or do you ever dream
and now all the things i am
is who i was all along

I find that I am home
with the world outside the door
the sun is coming up and i am terrified
If i could shut the blinds or
hide between the lines
I'd give anything to escape the light of another day

we can make a shelter here
on the far side of the knoll
weather out the storm
we've be charged to bear
don't lose sleep my friend
over things that haven't happened yet
nothing too bad
lasts for too long


from Long Division, released May 22, 2013
Written, recorded, and performed by Ross Turpen except for lead electric guitar, which was performed by Erik Mueller.
