The Black Light Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Leave the heart of the city
For the heart of the world
Leave the heart of this city
Love the way her trust unfurls
Verse 2
Follow her hand to the dark end of the street
Cross in the night, invisible to the electric eye
Sippin' on a little Night Train
Slippin' into the car to stay warm
Verse 3
Sleep by day, and move at night
Sleep by day, and keep moving at night
Keep moving, keep moving
Verse 4
Follow her hand to the dark end of the street
And cross in the night
Become invisible in the blink of an eye
Verse 5
Out past the Border Patrol
Whose thunderbird's no match
A helicopter shadow follows you
(Past the cancerous sprawl into fields of thorn)
Way out past the Downtown city glow
Cross the Santa Cruz
I-10 through the Rincons, Cochise Stronghold
South of the Chiricahuas
Drifting and drifting(x3)
