lyrics

I always hoped that I would die
in battle
Mosquito bites and skinny knees
bruises from the gleaming saddle.
Then Excalibur fell somewhere under the bed,
I collected my cuts to keep them fat and fed--
I'm a museum,
to all my Fuck Ups instead.
Wake up, Little Joan
I know you can't be dead...

She's an unmarked graveyard
off the highway in the back of your mind
And the wolves are crying out,
"Don't you know, it's been here the whole time?"

And the petals are falling all around me now
I push my ear down to the summertime ground
for a heart beat

Pick Up
Your steel and ride--
take to the trees while there's still time
Take the rainbow bridge to the top of the glacier
In the thundercloud, I know I can face her--
Valkyrie
Pick up your steel and ride with me

Do you remember where you were
at the moment that you lost track of time?
Sold your armor for a busted lip,
the fight inside of you died?

And the petals are falling all around me now
I push my ear down to the summertime ground
for a heart beat

Pick Up
Your steel and ride--
take to the trees while there's still time
Take the rainbow bridge to the top of the glacier
In the thundercloud, I know I can face her--
Valkyrie
Pick up your steel and ride with me

...And the sunlight is pouring in,
dandelions are on the wind...
I got a feeling
this is the moment
something good is about to happen--

An incantation
a face in the flame
I can't recall the place
because it's never the same--
Hold Steady
Take Aim, girl
and say my Name...

BLOOD MOON crashes in
and says, "SHUT UP AND I'LL GIVE YOU A SIGN--"
"The time has come for you to decide
if you're gonna survive."

Take the rainbow bridge,
to the cosmic divide
and shout from the tower,
It's a Rock & Roll Suicide--
"I'm Alive!"

Pick up your steel, it's time
to ride.
