 words and music by Steve Gregoropoulos (Temple Bells, BMI administered by BMG)

Hang the obsidian men from the hulls of the craft that race across the sky
all we have left - they suddenly felt it was time to fly

hand in the wake of a dream they never had the gall to believe in what went by
diamonds and pearls, westchester girls on the license plate

riding the wave that brought them
we are the sound of the forest we ride

no germs and needles
no specks of dust and no goodbyes
back at the speed of light
suddenly watching the cars go by
oh hang the obsidian men
