Carbon Ribs
by John Mark McMillan

Album: Basement Sessions, Vol. 1
by John Mark McMillan


a thousand pairs of fiery eyes
burn like the serpent
down the hwy 5
as the long amber tail
of los angeles unwinds
i've got resurrection
down inside my skin
but for all my revelating
i just can't make sense
of this gravity we're in

cause i'm a dead man now
with a ghost who lives
within the confines of
these carbon ribs
and one day
when i'm free i will sit
the cripple at your table
the cripple by your side

a thousand miles
of pain i'm sure
led you to the threshold
of my heart's screen door
to tell me what it is i'm dying for
gravity comes
like a cold cold rain
to lead me to the rope again
but someone is standing
in my place

cause i'm a dead man now
with a ghost who lives
within the confines of
these carbon ribs
and one day
when i'm free i will sit
the cripple at your table
the cripple by your side
and i sit beside you
and i sit beside you
