Lyrics:
Send a telegram
Tell me your thoughts
I want to live for a day
In the way that we lost
But unfortunately the twain
Got crissed not crossed
Locked the keys in the car
So the legs have to walk
The desert terrain
We been wayward and plain
Waiting for rain
In the decade afraid
Of what pain might do
To the pleasure we knew
Before we had to move on
I did my best for you

Doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo doo

Darker
We dance alone this way
It's getting darker
We dance alone this way

I waited for a fire
To collide with the ground
Tried to get back on the world
As it was turning around
Splinters and pieces
From a life that crashed
Watching every minute
Of the wreckage go past
'Cause motions wearing down
All my thoughts
'Til they're all smoothed out
Like rocks were tossed
Ducks and drakes
Over water we go
Where we see there's only memories
Drowning below

Darker
We dance alone this way
It's getting darker
We dance alone this way

On a gravel train
We were waiting for hope
I was a light fading out
Like a stray on a rope
Let the scenery pass
Like a blown-out TV
Thought I saw a ghost
But it might have been me
Might have been the world
That was moving too fast
Caught up in the future
That was drunk on the past
Now looking for a place
Where the lights unravel
Last ditch road
Trespassers travel on

Darker
We dance alone this way
It's getting darker
We dance alone this way

We dance alone this way
