lyrics

roll the dice / I'm going in to claim my name /
the race is on / fire away /
labyrinth of sliding doors / the choice is mine /
where I go becomes who I am /
I am my father's eyes / I am my mother's heart /
I am my brother's hands / and the chance /
of soft, safe ground / anything I become /
will affect everyone / everything I have done /
will remain under the sun /
dreams come undone like paper / under city lights /
we flock to play broken horses /
let's play like broken horses /
here's my shot / fail me not / I place my bets /
don't hesitate / no time to waste /
cover me / my hands are stiff and trembling cold /
cover me this once for I have lost control /
cover me for I'm about to stake my soul /
it's in the woods / it's in the breeze /
it's heading fast over hills and seas /
it's in the branches and all the leaves /
it's under ground and above the trees /
it's in the air upon my skin /
beneath the crust and the cage I'm in /
it's in the streets / it's all there is /
and all around /
and from afar I see the lights of shooting stars /
oh if you were only among them /
I would let you go see our lives from up above /
and way down I'd still be here playing broken horses /
I'd be playing broken horses /
