Alcatraz Lyrics - The Gathering Field

Review The Song (0)



Steven and I hitch-hiking
Our day off to Hanover
Beat up car with young girl driving
Slow down and pull over

In the rear view mirror
Like co-conspirators we did smile
I did not know that I was running
I saw the sunlight streaming

Down on the landscape
Of my Alcatraz escape
From the sadness 'twas born in my soul

Three years passed, still I was suffering
Spent that March in Charlottesville
Saw the ghost of Thomas Jefferson
Sitting on my window sill

With his thin powdered hair
sponsored links
And his concubine there he did smile
I did not know that I was running
I saw the twilight gleaming

Down on the landscape
Of my Alcatraz escape
From the sadness 'twas born in my soul
I went down through the labyrinth
Of my falsified regret
Deep in flight from the light in my soul

Oh what a complicated tapestry I sewed
All that energy I wasted on my fear
All those years spent stumbling down that lonesome road

It's not very clear
How far or how near I have come
I did not know that I was running
I see the sunlight streaming

Down on the landscape....
