(Verse)
Going for broke in a film noir smile
Know it’s hard to your easy start
You don’t let the clicks or injustice get you down
There’s more to find than what you pick up
Sometimes the furthest isn’t quite enough
Shadows are good companions for the lot that you say

(Bridge)
The world’s deserted and down
Like there’s no love around
The river of life cuts across
Hearts no longer entwine

(Chorus)
Words shine on like precious stones
Judgment day, the truth be known
The miles and years make it better
Through gilded tears

(Verse)
Race around to the rattling drone
Diamonds in the distance make the battle sound
Equilibrium found on the outskirts of any town

(Bridge)
The world’s deserted and down
Like there’s no love around
The river of life cuts across
Hearts no longer entwine

(Chorus x2)
Words shine on like precious stones
Judgment day, the truth be known
The miles and years make it better
Through gilded tears

Miles and years make it better
Through gilded tears
