You felt time collapse around you
Just before the coming of the tide
Breaking through the walls that bound you in
You never thought you’d reach the other side

You’re descending on the world
With the madness of a newborn god
We’re past the age of casting glances
The time for leaving won’t be too long

I drove a hundred down the highway
Far away from captive misery
All the flies and vultures in my rearview mirror
And only strange new paths ahead of me
