Slotcar

lyrics

My breath unfolds out in front of my head like a silver rug
I'm wrapped up in clothes that I've outgrown as my brogues sink into the mud
I built you a slotcar with sticking wheels and flashing lights
You leave me alone now, a ghost on the road in the dead of the night

May God's love be with you

My brother dear, for thirty some odd years you bared your chest
Alone with your machine, a lighthouse in the sea of your own unrest
I built you a slot car with sticking wheels and flashing lights
You leave me alone now, a ghost on the road in the dead of the night

May God's love be with you

There is a song that lives on thru the morning
A white lily falls upon the box in which you sleep
For underground there ain't no sound but the calling
Of Angels as they cradle you in the dark and the deep
In the darkness and the deep
