Just Like Nomads

The rat just hit another bar,
Tonight heís already gone too far...
Making enemies with the sun,
Hitting on the heroine...
Itís all right, she was looking for
The villain tonight...

Blurried sidewalks full of eyes,
Behind the amber windows the warm dream lies...
Guarded by the vagrant in thrift cloth,
Holding out his cup for itsí empty doom...
While the damsel's crying on the church steps,
Underneath the stardoms...

ĎCause friday night is kicking alive,
But there are those of us who can barely survive...
Dealing off the crusted rinds,
In their ashtray living room of drastic shines...
Again the ancient races start,
But they somehow have always missed the mark...
In tiny huddled embers of might,
Just like nomads with no home but the Night.

The store fronts have been boarded up,
To make way for the charging swine...
But they drift on as intricate cobwebs,
Hidden upstairs in their forbidden guild...
Wagering their souls with the dark,
Avoiding the time when they pay for their part...

Again the ancient trials start,
But they somehow have always gotten off...
In the trudging lines to Charonís raft,
Just like nomads with no home but the Path.
