Up With The Smoke - Down With The Ash

This song is by Turboweekend and appears on the album Ghost Of A Chance (2009).

I saw the animal six as a silhuette fixed on the back wall
I turned my body around so I could face the sound of the cat's call
The broken window was shaking and my bones were aching to follow the trail
Where the curtains were torn by the claws and the horns I saw the sweep of the nine tails

Through the shimmering light I stumbled into the nights empire
And with the spark in my hand I followed blood in the sand to the bonfire
This is a farewell to names, old tags burn in the flames with a flash
And as your old body chokes you rise up with the smoke and come down with the ash

Wind from the coastline blows cross the highs and the lows turning wolves into sheep
Just when the skyline quakes, clouds fall into the lake, stars are lost in the deep
Trombones and tamburines play, big sound makes everything sway
Vision blurred by the heat, bodies are chained to the beat

Breaking the loop, I saw the birdmen swoop down for prey
Their beaks in my back I heard the branches crack as they flew me away
This is a farewell to names, old tags burn in the flames with a flash
And as your old body chokes you rise up with the smoke and come down with the ash

It has exploded the frames, memories tied to the games of the past
I am divided and tossed, among the bones of the lost I am the first and the last
Heart beat, heart beat. We've never been down this street
These licks these tricks - We're playing with the animal sixth

Through the shimmering light I stumbled into the nights empire
And with the spark in my hand I followed blood in the sand to the bonfire
This is a farewell to names, old tags burn in the flames with a flash
And as your old body chokes you rise up with the smoke and come down with the ash
