THE NEXT BLUE SKY

The only lights they leave on here
are the exit signs
who’s the next in line to go?
Empty floors, reflective glass
You can see this future knows no past
you know what’s going on
there’s nothing left to do
But roll on through, and beyond, down the road
You go then you’re gone

Around the bend to the next blue sky
This is the sound of me saying goodbye
Around the bend to the next blue sky
This is the sound of me saying goodbye

We walk these streets with tired eyes
To find something we recognize
This used to be my town
Like the dominos in the middle rows
Not the first to go
or the last to know
We all fall down

If I can’t get a witness
Can I at least get a drink?
Raise a glass to the last
As we step cross the brink

Around the bend to the next blue sky
This is the sound of me saying goodbye
Around the bend to the next blue sky
This is the sound of me saying goodbye
Around the bend to the next blue sky…

In our western dreams
We could do no wrong
And it felt alright til the lights came on

The sun was setting in the west
The birds were singing on every tree

Around the bend to the next blue sky
This is the sound of me saying goodbye
Around the bend to the next blue sky
This is the sound of me saying goodbye
Around the bend to the next blue sky
This is the sound of me saying goodbye
Around the bend the sun is shining
This is the sound of the future rewinding
