gone away on the water

down to the banks in the grey
caught in the grip of the heaviest weight
wrestling plans and promises made
lighting the water to lead you away

sometimes this earth seems so cold
it always takes everything that it's owed
every bone belongs back in the dust
even the iron succumbs to the rust

gone away on the water

every light drifts slowly away
a guide for the ones who can no longer stay
gone down a road for some lost lonely soul
there is a light for each hungry ghost

only a river, only a road
only a highway to somewhere unknown
only a light on its way to the sea
only a ghost sailing slowly from me
