Cross Out the Eyes

Lyrics

Cross Out The Eyes - Thursday

Lets call this the quiet city

Where screams are felt as the waves of the stoplights

Drive through the streets

As gunshots punctuate the night

The sides we take divide us from our faith

 

And the mourning dove gets caught in the telephone wire

Asleep you set the fire in your own house

 

And the night was a knife the cut

And I'm paralyzed

 

Cross out the eyes blur all the lines

Tearing this canvas from the wall

Cross out the eyes put lines through these cries

Pulled all the leaves from the trees that fall

Yeah trees that fall trees that fall trees that fall fall

 

A silent dance that we did into this hospital bed

 

Hear voices from another room:

"It happens all the time"

But July in the sand then

The leaves fall and counting down our days to live

Drain the blood from this valentine:

 

 

See blue skies getting caught in the trail of all this smoke

 

We can rise like candles in the dark -Yours always"

And an envelope marked with your new address

 

Asleep you set the fire in your own house

 

And the night was a knife that cut

And I'm paralyzed

 

Cross out the eyes blur all the lines

Tearing this canvas from the wall

Cross out the eyes put lines through these cries

Pulled all the leaves from the trees that fall

Cross out the eyes blur all the lines lines

 

Cross out the eyes blur all the lines cries

 

The eyes cross the eyes cross

 

It was the first time face to face

 

Crossing the line talking to the other side of death

Hearing the words that choke memories into flatlines

Calling your name hoping for something to wash these dreams of you away

Til we die memories and flatlines

 

Cross out the eyes til we set off these lines

 

Cross out the eyes til we set off these lines

 

Cross out the eyes

Our fence was blown down in a winter storm in this field

 

(Cross out the eyes)

Stretches out of this world into the sound

(A trace of)

What can we do the put a stop the the coming white days

(A love song)

I'm hoping for something to wash these dreams of you away
