Bound to Go

Lyrics

 

“trashcan gold never seemed to rise above

the din of countless neon nights”

she’s talking through the broken rattles of

a foreign kind of blinding light

 

she’s bound to go where no-one else will know

when the sun is sinkin’ low

 

rockstar noise in a bar at close of day

she hears the notes as perfect, round

with a deadpan grin that always helped her get away

to hear the colors underground

 

she’s bound to go where no-one else will know

when the sun is sinkin’ low

 

drifting through the rings of tired eyes

that bounce inside a brilliant flood

a simple act of moving in disguise

through walls of wasted angry blood

 

she’s bound to go where no-one else will know

when the sun is sinkin’ low

 

freezing cold on the surface of the street

she hears the silver of the moon

and blending through the fabric of defeat

comes undenied a dancing tune

 

she’s bound to go where no-one else will know

when the sun is sinkin’ low
