about

The line 'The dogs bark but the caravan moves on' is taken from the old arabic proverb...

lyrics

You use silence as a weapon
Each long second a victory
So short for you
Eternity…
All my grand intentions
To Garbo-like pretentions
Fall so soon to you
Leaving me nothing
Only words chasing down
Hard and bright
Like dust falls as meteorites.

And the dogs bark
But your caravan moves on
Trailing lines of tangled dreams behind you
And the dogs bark
But all witnesses are gone
While sleepy girls awake who don't yet know you.

But the person that you run from
Isn't that girl, or the next one
And her charms were awful bright
All those sad connections
All temporary diversions
Rolling down the years
Saving your faith from
All the words chasing down
Hard and bright
Like dust falls as meteorites.

The dogs bark
But your caravan moves on
Trailing lines of tangled dreams behind you
And the dogs bark
But all witnesses are gone
While sleepy girls awake who don't yet know you.

You use silence as a weapon
Being with you a cold heaven
A leo fire
A thread of smoke
But someday you'll be happy
A light will surround you
Fire will rise again
You'll follow your own star
Of all the sparks in the sky
Hard and bright
Like dust falls as meteorites.

And the dogs bark
But your caravan moves on
Trailing lines of tangled dreams behind you
And the dogs bark
But all witnesses are gone
While sleepy girls awake who don't yet know you
