Leave the heart of the city
For the hert of the world
Leave the heart of this city
Love the way her trust unfurls
Follow her hand to the dark end of the street
Cross in the night, invisible to the electric eye
Sippin' on a little Night Train
Slippin' in to the car to stay warm
Keep moving, keep moving
Sleep by day, move at night
Keep moving
Follow her hand to the dark end of the street
Cross in the night
Become invisible in a blink of an eye
Out past the border patrol
Who's thunderbird's no match
A helicopter shadow follows you
Way out past the downtown city glow
Cross the Santa Cruz and I-10
Past the cancerous sprawl into fields of thorn
Through the Rincon Mountains and Cochise
Stronghold South of the Chiricahuas
Drifting and drifting...
