    Lyrics
    From the dusty May sun her looming shadow grows
    Hidden in the branches of the poison creosote
    She twines her spines up slowly towards the boiling sun
    And when I touched her skin, my fingers ran with blood
    In the hushing dusk, under a swollen silver moon

    Lyrics
    We stopped for coffee
    In the redwood forest
    Giant dripping leaves
    Spoons of powdered cream
    I wanted to kiss you

    Lyrics
    It's four in the morning, the end of December
    I'm writing you now just to see if you're better
    New York is cold but I like where I'm living
    There's music on Clinton street all through the evening
    I hear that you're building your little house

    My name, I don't remember
    Though I hail from Ohio
    I had a wife and children
    Good tires on my car
    What took me from my home

    Lyrics
    If the world should end in fire
    The oceans boiling into flame
    I will watch the last sunrise
    And think of all the sunny days
    When the mystery of the skies
    If the World Should End in Fire  -  51,165 plays
