Gavin Harrison’s drumming throughout this track is nothing short of amazing.

Gold man bites down on a silver tongue
Takes a deep breath and blows the candle out
He knows the truth but he keeps it to himself
Here it is
You can only save yourself
When we bite the dust
We will hide our cuts from the world
When you’re in the dirt
You don’t show your hurt to the world
Cold man, white knuckles on the wheel
Well it’s all just there to steal
You just gotta take it
Take it like the harridan you are
It’s the time of the almost rain without you
I am in debt to night
And gone to earth for love
And I, a shadow
And what of us?
