aim low…

we hit the blue fields
in the blue sedan we didn’t get much further
just as the sun was rising in the mist
we were all alone we didn’t need much more

so fast this expedition
so vast this heavy load
with a touch of luck and a sense of need
seeing the guns and their faces
we look around the open shore
waiting for something

shoot high break low
aim high shoot low
break high let go
shoot high aim low

this was to be our last ride
with the steel guitar and the love you give me
underneath the skin a feeling, a breakdown
well we sat for hours on the crimson sand

exchanges in the currency of humans bought and sold
and the leaders seem to lose control

shall we lose ourselves for a reason
shall we burn ourselves for the answer
have we found the place we’re looking for
someone shouted ‘open the door’
look out….

shoot high break low
aim high shoot low
feeling of imagination
break high let go
shoot high aim low

shoot high aim low
nothing you can say
shoot high let go
takes me by surprise

shoot high aim low
who says there’s got to be a reason
who says there’s got to be an answer

we were all alone, we didn’t need much more
shoot high aim low
the sun’s so hard on this endless highway
shoot high let go
shoot high aim low
i’ve heard the singers, who sing of love
shoot high let go
in the blue sedan we never got much further

    Wow…even without the music, these words are hauntingly fabulous. Absorbing.

    For some reason this song conjures up images from Saving Private Ryan’s Omaha Beach scene… maybe because it was on tv this weekend but yeah… that’s all.

  4. I don’t know. I see a mix of James Dean and Chris Isaak with a little Harry Nillson for color.

    I sang my balls off for you, baby.
