1. Canyon Bones

From the recording 40 Miles from Midnight



Wind and water ever tug
Tumbling down these canyon spires
Washing out their flesh and blood
Bones under vermilion sky

Sleep now, stones from abov
eIn peaceful rest now lie
Dream primeval yellow sun
Passing over channels of fire

Canyon bones, canyon bones
Carry me to my home
Canyon bones, canyon bones
Out here all alone
Canyon bones, canyon bones
Deepest place I’ve ever known I’ve ever known…

[instrumental bridge]

Running rivers fast again
Water lifts my spirit high
Ancient voices around each bend
Echo life long held desire

Drinking down desert heat
Shimmer vision in my eyes
In this copper land revealed
Truth beyond all time survives
