lyrics

How the Rest Were Won

A vast experience
Itself a game of chance
Torched from above
The sun’s relentless lust
The red eye still sees all
Even as it falls
Burning the horizon
Has come to realize that

This is how the rest were won
This is what the West has come to

Cracked lips and open heart
Destinations days apart
City thunder
And ways of countless wonder
One heel in the sand
Quick mind and open hand
Hold it steady
Dry eyes and finger ready

Street reminder
Loan roamer
Torn duster
Blind finder
Sun slinger
Just bringer
Life taker
Grave maker

This is how the rest were won
This is what the west has come to

Ripping through the soul
Reaching for it all
Back of trust exposed
Never again will be told

This is how the rest were won
This is what the west has come to be
