Track Name: Anon
Golden
As the hair and the light that frame your face
Dangerous
Are the avenues that lead from this place
Finally throwing caution to the wind
It rises high as a kite and starts to spin
Dangerous
Words can open up so much possibility
And on and on, anon, anon

On and on, anon
On and on it goes
Everyone is sorry for the life they chose
Up from the depths of your darkened room
Creeping in the corners when the day is through

I only cry when the clouds roll in
Finally throwing caution to the wind
It starts spinning like a rising kite
And disappears into the cloudless night

And it was a long night
From now until dawn is longer still
And I was a liar
For telling us both it wasn’t real

I pulled over to the side of the road
And hiked down to where the roses grow
Headed through the tunnel where we used to play
And stood above where the bodies lay

Dangerous
Are the methods by which we’ll leave this place
And it’s worth it

And on and on, anon, anon

Down by the water, we will meet
And retreat to the shade
To stare at the clouds through shaking leaves
Anon, anon

So pull your car to the side of the road
And meet me down where the roses grow
Head on through the tunnel where we used to play
And lay beside me in a shallow grave

It will be a long night
From now until dawn is longer still
And I am a liar
For telling us both it wasn’t real

Stare at the clouds through the shaking leaves
Quiet enough, I can hear you breathe
On and on, anon
As we lie beneath the dancing trees
Anon, anon
