Wild Light – Red House lyrics

I rode the steed into the road
You want to ride, but I said 'No. '
The lighting flashed inside your howling rage
But I don't feel a thing.

First there was a wall, and then a town -
The colony that lives between us now
Whatever came to mind, we used to shout it loud
Open up the doors and let everyone run out
Into the wide, wide open
To the blinding light.

Who turned this Love into a Court?
Who hung The Law over our bedroom door?
When I rode away, they said they pardoned me
But did they give me grace? Or were they just weak?

You answered all my prayers babe
But none of my desires
And now we're both tired

There ain't no one alive
That ever could ever be the cage
For something so wild

Now there's a noise that covers this sound
Of a calling slowly being missed.
But my voice is wild with the young alarm
Of new life afraid to become-

Nothing! Nothing! Nothing! Nothing!
Nowhere! No One!
Nothing! Nothing! Nothing! Nothing!
Nowhere! No One!
Nothing! Nothing! Nothing! Nothing!
Nowhere! No One!
