tuesdays are lyrical

Calexico -
All Systems Red

felt a tremor stir beneath my breath
that forecast storms on the gallop poll
waking up from the nightmare news
hoping to read a sign in the morning air

nothing changes here and nothing improves
all say my friends who just want out
and leave these troubles behind
scatter like paper in the eye of the storm
documented with a silenced note
that's only heard from far away

more cards in play, following suit
everywhere you look, you only see red
wonder when to call off the race
watching a horse run down it's last legs
when you think it couldn't get much worse
the numbers rise on the death toll
and the chimes of freedom flash and fade
only heard from far away

i hear you can't trust in your own
now the grey is broken in the early morn
and the words forming barely have a voice
it's just your heart that's breaking without choice

everything you learned is distorted in your head
bouncing off the wall, unraveling the thread
staying up with the blue screen glow
forgetting everything you ever dreamed years ago

when the dead is flowing down my veins
i want to tear it all down and build it up again
hear your heart that's breaking without choice
i want to hear those chimes ring ring
ring again.
