lyrics

Firearms and Fireflies

There’s a difference between knowing and knowing better
There’s a difference between knowing and knowing better
In a shotgun in the shadow of a billboard
She lives and daily senses
To ask and answer all alone
While colors bleed across the sky

Clouds converge or they drift alone
While cicadas scream and the river shines along
They sing
Oo de lally lullaby
Oo de lally lullaby

Firearms and fireflies
Flash and thunder in the night
Freely falling

Rippled leaves in jagged motion
Catch my throat and burn my eyes
A noble savage haunts this place
A trace of grace displaced with time
Oo de lally lullaby
Oo de lally lullaby

Firearms and fireflies
Flash and thunder in the night
Freely falling

I feel forever like Aurora sleeps
But I know she’ll be back again
Amber lenses cleanse my eyes
The sky the breeze the trees now sigh
Oo de lally lullaby
Oo de lally lullaby

Firearms and fireflies
Flash and thunder in the night
Freely falling
And we struggle and we break
And we give and we take
And we do it all over
And we struggle and we break
And we give and we take
And we do it all over
Yeah we do it all over
Just to do it all over

I confess, undress
Just bless me with your lullaby
Oo de lally lullaby
