Without A Sound

from Cuimhneachan Town by C.J.Lee



Dearest JJ Miller I want to tell you a true story
A song you sing along dirt roads a song of love in the morning
A voodoo breeze through the willow trees shes nowhere to be found
She up'd and left down the gravel road of this stonequarry town
Without A Sigh
Without A Sound

A cactus collecting crown juggles spikes on her steeple thrown
he's got a rattle snake inside an old squeeze box 6 months good behaviour
Well god only knows what he's done as they disappear into the crowd
Like a mariachi band lost at sea
Their gone Without A Sigh
Without A Sound

Sell your soul while you still can
This demented voice sounds familiar
It echoes through the empty heads of all the mannequins, the empty bottles, the broken mirror

So tell those see-through little girls and the evening news lobbyists
the rivers and the floating limbs i can taste them in your noble kiss
but i won't tell about the ghosts you see the night watchers of this town
When the roster crows at the break of dawn
yeah he crows with all the cross road guards that had left this place
10 million years ago now with all the night flying crowd
right over mariachi bands that were bound but drowned
Without A Sigh
Without A Sound

I heard you married a pretty Irish boy and you moved up to the palms
Where the markets strong and it's safe and warm right there in your baby's arm
Your so beautiful but i keep my ears close to your heart
Those marchi bands I hear no more they drowned
without a sigh
without a sound
