in the brutality of this moment, we are at a checkpoint. will we make it through?or will we go underground?

Lyrics

did you see her walking along the river road her head held high her pockets full of stones she is one of the many you are one of the few when she imagines kindness she doesn't think of you she's gonna waltz across the checkpoint she's gonna drift on through away from the ruins of everything she knew with nothing to declare she's gonna slip through the veil leave her mark on the palimpsest wander out beyond the pale you're no friend to the traveler to the lame or the poor and you will never have her you can't kill her anymore she's gonna waltz across the checkpoint she's gonna drift on through away from the ruins of everything she knew leave the gleanings for her some wood to keep her warm and a pail of water some kind words now that she's gone a million fragments stories in the sand in the shadow of the creosote where all the journeys end she's gonna waltz across the checkpoint she's gonna drift on through away from the ruins of everything she knew she's gonna waltz across the checkpoint she's gonna drift on through away from the ruins of everything she knew
