In The Flicker (Sundowner)

The air is filled with dust and smoke The cities burned down long ago Washed in fear we salvage hopes We walk the same abandoned road I dance to the here and the now I dance to the bullets against the ground We live in the flicker tonight We chase the waves of dawn 'til we die The vultures circle overhead They heard every word I said We search for ghosts that roam our past Revel in dreams that never last I wear a bulls-eye on my back A scrap of metal in my chest I live or die with every step The gloom is brooding in the west How many lives have I got left? Just leave my corpse to ride the desert wind Just lay me dead never return again
