First released on: Meet You There, 2007

        
the match burns down, it nips your fingers
it wakes you from the dream of where you thought you were
wrong, wrong, got your face right in it
as if the world could care

and sliding under the wing to starboard
a moon goes up and down on some city somewhere
your heart is jammed, the chamberís loaded
silver bullets of joy or despair

and you can trust in the power of music
you can trust in the power of prayer
but itís only the white of your knuckles
thatís keeping this plane in the air

Iíve got scar tissue, Iíve got cash in hand
got a season ticket to the promised land
and I do this for a living mister donít you understand
that Iím dancing dancing dancing
dancing as fast as I can?

and when youíre dry they bring you brandy
the gates of sleep you gotta push on through
who stands guard while youíre dreaming
of blue skies, blue over blue?

and you can trust in the power of music
you can trust in the power of prayer
but itís only the white of your knuckles
thatís keeping this plane in the air

Iíve got scar tissue, Iíve got cash in hand
got a season ticket to the promised land
and I do this for a living, mister, donít you understand
that Iím dancing, dancing, dancing
dancing as fast as I can?
