a wolf descends upon the spanish sahara lyrics – fair to midland

if you’re keeping score then you’re bound to win,
a birds eye view of a burning bridge,
you’ve gone through ghost towns settle past,
hoping the risk was worth a cause,

oh, sound off the false alarm,

but i’ll make my own colleague from wood and from ivory,
and reap the rewards of proximity,
i’ll *ssemble my equal from what i lack and require,
and gather what’s left unaccompanied,

it smells like disaster,
it looks like a trap,
so go by the wayside,
and never look back,

if you could spare me forty winks,
while you cry wolf and i count sheep,
what good old ghosts in kevlar vests,
with backbones like a jellyfish,

oh, stomp on your land again,

but i’ll make my own colleague from wood and from ivory,
and reap the rewards of proximity,
i’ll *ssemble my equal from what i lack and require,
and gather what’s left unaccompanied,

it smells like disaster,
it looks like a trap,
so go by the wayside,
and never look back,

if you are keeping score then you are bound to win,
a ring side seat at the main event,
oh, stomp on your land again,

it smells like disaster,
it looks like a trap,
so go by the wayside,
and never look back.
