real slow today lyrics – boris grebenshikov

this is a dangerous tale
of oxygen and flame
tale of running away
nowhere to run
all i can see is you
visions of water in the desert sun
things gonna get real slow today
things gonna get real slow today
takes one prisoner
takes one to show him the way
then comes this lesson in natural history
and these ladies are laughing at me
can i join the fun?
i know i’m haunted, keeps the flame bright
i guess i can say i’m alright
just a burning arrow stuck in my heart
well, anyway…
and some people say that
we shouldn’t cross this line
but there is no line
only the sky
i want to see you smile
want to feel us get up and fly
shouldn’t we?
