Skywalk to Crescent Town

lyrics

I'd like to leave here tonight
Kick the star spurs in my sides
I'm your shadow beast
I will ride
I will ride

Blossoms that burst into fire
Open a wound in the sky
Starlings, jackdaws, vultures and kites
Have found a trap door in the night

All birds will leave earth tonight
Kick the star spurs in my sides

A dizzying flash
Bluebells hammering wide
Your nails, your teeth in my side
Archways dilate
Gusts of light in my eyes
Rows of parched houses
Catching on fire
I'd like to leave here tonight
Kick the star spurs in my side
I'm your shadow beast
I will ride
I will ride
I will ride
