LOCHS & LAKES


LOAD YOUR BAGS
AND HOLD YOUR SIGHT
JUST DON'T BE AROUND
WHEN I'LL BE BACK

FROM DUST TO BONES
THROW YOUR STONES
THE PILLAR GRAY
COLLAPSED AND CAVED

THE ROCK & GROUND FOR BED
AND HARDENED STARES IN RED
NO LIGHT OR DARK FOR IT

BUT HAND IN HAND THEY WAIT
EMBRACED & PUSHED AWAY
TO HAVE, TO HOLD, AND STAY

RECALL THE LOVE YOU HELD
AND HOLD IT DOWN AGAIN
IN LOCHs & LAKES FOR GRAVES

SO HOLD IT
STEP ON IT
AIN'T HAVIN' IT
DONE UP WITH IT

DON'T QUIT
CROWD IT IN
SUFFER IT
FELL HEAD ON END

THE ROCK & GROUND FOR BED
AND HARDENED STARES IN RED
NO LIGHT OR DARK FOR IT

BUT HAND IN HAND THEY WAIT
EMBRACED & PUSHED AWAY
TO HAVE, TO HOLD, AND STAY

RECALL THE LOVE YOU HELD
AND HOLD IT DOWN AGAIN
IN LOCHs & LAKES FOR GRAVES

SO HOLD IT
STEP ON IT
AIN'T HAVIN' IT
TO HELL WITH IT

DON'T QUIT
CROWD IT IN
ARE YOU HAPPY NOW
HAVE YOU DROWNED IT OUT?


TAKE IT FAST YOU LOST YOUR WAY
AND IT DROWNED IN LOCHS & LAKES
AND YOUR MIND'S BEEN RUNNIN' TRAILS
AND YOUR FIRE'S RAISING HELL
AND YOU FOUGHT YOUR BATTLES WELL
ALL YOUR WARS YOU LOST IN VAIN
AND YOUR CHEST AN EMPTY CAGE
AND YOU CAN'T FILL IT UP AGAIN
