Kingdom Come

a walk on the water and a slow-mo skid
as the sun sets down across the Burnside bridge
looking for another hand to hold you like you always did
the chalk and the ash and the footprints in the dirt
and the weight of the stars getting heavy till it hurts
how much searching can you do when your heart's on your shirt

in the back of your mind, like some little needle
a thorn in your side
a tiny little bruise to an awful lot of pride
shot down in the blink of an eye
asleep with a little bit of doubt under the bed
awake with a small suspicion hiding in your head
a walk across the water with the word hanging over our beds

are you still waiting for your kingdom to come?

can't wind the clocks back make sure less true
can't change the past or put one over on you
trying to keep up as the sun's sinking back in the blue
a walk across the water and a stone-cold look
turning fact into fiction into feeling underfoot
maybe someday you'll take a page out of a different book

one cracked crown and the house comes down
you'd tear it all to the ground
and let it burn
one white lie just like a thorn in your side
why can't you swallow your pride
will the world stop turning?
