Josh Ritter – Monster Ballads lyrics

Radio waves are coming miles and miles Bringing only empty boats Whatever feeling they had when they sailed Somehow slipped out between the notes

Out on the desert now and feeling lost The bonnet wears a wire albatross Monster ballads and the stations of the cross Sighing just a little bit Sighing just a little bit

And I was thinking? Bout what Katy done Thinking? Bout what Katy did The fairest daughter of the Pharaoh? S son Dressed in gold? Neath pyramids

Out on the desert now and feeling lost The bonnet wears a wire albatross Monster ballads and the stations of the cross Sighing just a little bit Sighing just a little bit

Ones and zeroes bleeding mesa noise And when you? Re empty there? S so much space for them You turn it off but then a still small voice Comes in blazing from some vast horizon

And I was thinking? Bout my river days I was thinking? Bout me and Jim Passing Cairo on a getaway With every steamboat like a hymn

Out on the desert now I? M feeling lost The bonnet wears a wire albatross Monster ballads and the stations of the cross Sighing just a little bit Smiling just a little bit

    Sometimes I actually prepare to recall a favorite memory. Like preparing your self for the feature once the previews are over. As the memory enters my mind it injects a flash of realism--almost as if I'm living the moment. My nerves do there best to render the feeling to my soul but no matter how hard I try to retain it the feeling leaves the instant it arrives. Josh ritter's lyrics slow that moment down-- allowing just a bit extra time for my peripheral memory to come front and center.
