A post-apocalyptic love song


Wish me goodnight
In a bunker near Barstow
Turn out the artificial light, til tomorrow

Time has stood still
Since we took all we can borrow
I'll take a sleeping pill
And dream of tomorrow

All the lizards lie
Belly up, in the furrow
Looks of surprise
And eternal sorrow

Some traipse the desert
In the emptiness and the hollow
Full of greed and regret
Others follow

Lie with me tonight
Belly up, til the blues go
I won't be surprised if you say no

There's a picture on the wall
Of a simple man and a silo
To remind us all
How the tune goes


from Long Goner, released September 10, 2012
