Year Of The Rat

This song is by Enter the Haggis and appears on the album The Modest Revolution (2013) and on the album Cheers and Echoes: A 20 Year Retrospective (2015).

You stood high out of reach
There at the top of the tower
You blew out my butts, blocked out the sun
No end to the pull and the power

A rope tied over the land
Suddenly frayed and unwinding
Eyes sharp as a warrior's blade
But in your own smoke you were blinded

So come all you liars, you saints and lost souls
One day's black is another day's gold
It's a strange place to see you tonight
But it's all or nothing
And it's gone

What's that racket
Down on the street?
Is it the year of the rat or the sheep?
Smoke and sting, this chaos and reek
The hum and the haze of the hollows
It's a ruse, a line, between yours and mine
We're dumping the body of evidence
Spread that paper, cover your eyes
And flee to the walls and shadows

So come all you liars, you saints and lost souls
One day's black is another day's gold
It's a strange place to see you tonight
But it's all or nothing
And it's gone

So come all you liars, you saints and lost souls
One day's black is another day's gold
It's a strange place to see you tonight
But it's all or nothing
