Golden Hearts

How long have you been kicking

Rocks that turn to dust

Destroyed by what’s been filling

Your golden heart with rust

That tree that you’ve been climbing

Tell me where it leads

Across a moonlit river

Among the frightened leaves

It’s someplace quite worth knowing?

It’s quite a sight to see

Where devils dance and parlay

Come fire walk with me

The path of least resistance

It’s trampled in the weeds

Excuse my cheap persistence

I’d follow if you’d lead

The rocks that I’ve been kicking

Each mineral’s a must

To know when I’ll be ready

To rebuild you from dust
