Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

When we got to Alturas

we left the children at a quarter to ten
no sense in trying to save them again
we grabbed the liquor and the diamond rings
we almost grabbed it all

we hit the highway at a hundred and three
we drove along the edges of infinity
the road was hissing like a snake on fire
we were headed for a fall
we were headed for a fall

there wasn't any medicine left
all the prayers were broken
our best and brightest were thrown out of the car
we couldn't go very far
there was nothing left to cure us
we couldn't shake the devil on our tail
that's when we got to Alturas

we saw the bells in the highway bricks
they used to ring long ago
we pulled the ropes and grabbed our necks
we weren't ready to go

when you're in trouble the world is a fiend
when you are hiding it can see everything
when you can't stand it is time to run
that is the moment when you are done
you are done


there wasn't any medicine left
all the prayers were broken
our best and brightest were thrown out of the car
we couldn't go very far
there was nothing left to cure us
we couldn't shake the devil on our tail
that's when we got to Alturas

can't get back to Klamath Falls
we'll never make it to Reno
the forests are on fire like a birthday cake
hey can you loan me a C note?

our days are numbered, our nights are marked
we hide in the shadows and throw light in the dark
we gotta find the best and the purest
we're waiting on a train in Alturas
we are the furthest we can go


we left the children at a quarter to ten
no sense in trying to save them again
we grabbed the liquor and the diamond rings
we almost grabbed it all

we hit the highway at a hundred and three
we drove along the edges of infinity
the road was hissing like a snake on fire
we were headed for a fall
we were headed for a fall


can't get back to Klamath Falls
we'll never make it to Reno
the forests are on fire like a birthday cake
hey can you loan me a C note?


there wasn't any medicine left
all the prayers were broken
our best and brightest were thrown out of the car
we couldn't go very far
there was nothing left to cure us
we couldn't shake the devil on our tail
that's when we got to Alturas
