Back To The Races
« back
Cannot face the past
I'd rather face the dark
Don't know what to say
Dont't know where you are
Is love too strong a god

Hpw long do we have to go
Ever tempted by
How far we'd have to fall

To feel that way again
I'll come back for the farm
I would've met you there
But I got terribly lost

You waited there so long
Finally you walked off
And I just passed the road
The road I shoulda turned

On... on your mark
You have my word
That I'll return
If you don't look back
And up we'll go
As it was on earth
So shall it be, so, so shall it be

I'll be in the shed
Waiting for the ram to sleep
I just combed my hair
So that maybe you'd like me

Everything to all
And all that fades away
But I can see you on
I can see you

On... on your mark
You have my word
That I'll return
If you don't look back
And up we'll go
As it was on earth
So shall it be, so, so shall it be

Lights blown out
On our backs
Sold our capes
To make it back

Beat the sword
Into a plow
Take my place
Take it now... and go
    Chorus:
    Back to the races
    And on with the day
    Back where the sacred are
    Back to the races
    And off with their heads
    Let the kings horses fall

Run
The fall might arrive
One more minute please Ma
Before we go inside

It's not dark to me
No it's not dark at all
And all the confederate kings
Are waiting in the hall

On your mark...
You have my word
That I'll return
If you don't look back

And up we'll go
As it was on earth
So shall it be so...
So shall it be so, and go
    Chorus:
    Back to the races
    And on with the day
    Back where the sacred are
    Back to the races
    And off with their heads
    Let the kings horses fall

One more time around
One more race to go
Send my name to the owls
Will I see you far below

Please don't turn around
Cause they'll take me back away
I can feel the moon
Draggin' me towards the race
