Still So Far Away

from by Jay Clifford



Still so far away

Canary and coal
Blackbird and wire
Circling suns
Turn the winds toward your kingdom on fire
Siren in red
A priest with a bull's head
Called you a liar

Still so far away
Still so far away

Shadow and moan
Shelter the soul
Pulleys and rope
Raise the arms of the gods in control
Columns of air
Foundation of blank stares
Is taking it's toll

Still so far away
Still so far away

Waiting in the cold gray light
On the tarmac
Every heartbeat organized
Planes overhead
Like ravens over a riverbed
Maybe see you one more time
In the blue light
Every gesture sterilized
But i saw it on your face and you knew
It was just a lie, a lie, a lie

Still so far away
Still so far away
