Stars and Bullet Holes - lyrics

playlist Playlist
Along the west coast of a modern land
I anchored my boat in the gloom
Anxious, I walked up the steep rolling hills in the fog
In the light of the moon
Welcome travelers from Sacramento to San Francisco!
Passing by miners digging for gold and silver
All through the night
Fishermen, fishing for Dungeness crabs
Or anything else that might bite
One of the miners hands me a strange dark rock
And says "It's all right"
I turn around from this kind old man and notice
A flame fierce and bright
Standing now on top of a hill
My neckskin crawls and I feel a chill
Cause at the docks, my old brigantine
is on fire and is sinking
Is this the end?
I wonder as I run
Running faster than anyone
No, I won't surrender, I'll never back down
I'll find my own way in this prodigious town
Nothing to rescue it's far too late
I realize as I get close
Stopping to catch my breath
Outside old Victorian homes
I don't have a boat to sail with no more
I guess I just have to walk
I'm heading south crossing a giant bridge
Sturdy as a rock
But at the docks, my old brigantine
Is on fire and is sinking
It's not the end
Determined, as I stroll
Head held high, I will never fall
No, I won't surrender, I'll never back down
I'll find my own way in this prodigious town
I hear bullet shots and wild horses escape
Away from the mainland and into the lake
And as I run towards an abandoned saloon
I notice a graveyard for hot air balloons
One has a wicker basket, good as new
Another an envelope with twigs sticking through
A small sewing job now and this bag's complete
The only thing lacking, is a source of heat
I check my pockets quietly, but all I have is that rock
I smash it in anger, into the ground
And notice a small spark
This isn't granite or a lump of coal
But quite a magical stone
Ascending towards the sky
I guess that old man was right all along
Astounded, as I fly
Looking down at the night sky
I didn't surrender, I didn't back down
No, this ain´t the end
Astounded, as I fly
Looking down at the night sky
I didn't surrender, I didn't back down
In this prodigious town.
