Red Knife Mountain

Lyrics

 

I’m headed over
Red Knife Mountain
i'm bound to go
it surely seems
but i won't
feel too poorly
when you smile
in my dreams

there's been talk
of insurrection
cities burning
to the ground
but in the dark-
est depths of fortune
what's always lost
is often found

my piece of mind
is far from holy
the wailing cries
I cannot stand
And so I dream
On you my lover
We walk in silence
Hand in hand

the tide is turning
for the better
my heart is like
a bloody fist
as it pounds
away at darkness
freedom is
it’s only wish

I’m headed over
Red Knife Mountain
Please take care
Not to cry
For I’ll see
you my sweet Lucy
in the land
behind the sky

I’m headed over
Red Knife Mountain
i'm bound to go
it surely seems
but i won't
feel too poorly
when you smile
in my dreams
