Notes From The Fallen

(oehler/goedken)

On cool nights like these
With sunlight gone from sight
I’m striking out on my own
Feel the pulse inside ignite
This town’s on fire
With shimmering beams of light
Falling up and soaring down
We’ll be floating here all night

Fake
Don’t let it show
The air is all aglow
And everyone you know
Is looking on tonight
Anyone who’s anyone
And everywhere you know
Everyone below
Is bathed in neon light

Hours start slipping by
Empty prayers I recite
Huddled up and left alone
Alive in words that we incite
We drift off course
Searching for the way tonight
Floating down and soaring up
Trapped and sinking with the light

Fallen
See the ground below
Jagged and aglow
And everyone you know
Faces hard and white
Anyone who’s anyone
And everywhere you know
Disappear below
Here in neon light

The dawning day breaks
Soft lines traced in flight
Empty now we return on home
Retreat back to our concealed site
Memories grow dim
Inside these columns of light
Falling up and soaring down
We’ll be out again tonight

Everything’s aglow
And everyone you know
And everywhere below
Is bathed in neon light
The air is all aglow
Everyone you know
And everyone below
Will be out tonight
