Lightning flashed behind our eyes
Silhouetted clouds in the darkened skies
One hand on the wheel one hand in mine
Driving past fields of white

Our shadows grew tall as the sun went down
And crept and crawled through the cracking ground
They cast no light they made no sound
We closed our eyes they could not be found

But our hearts had stayed within our chests
Behind a cage of ribs and flesh

We strained to hide in an empty place
But our shadows had found that our feet had traced
On the splintered ground a hurried pace
Too soon we found we could not escape

But our hearts had stayed within our chests
Behind a cage of ribs and flesh
