Mojave Rain

Shadowplay

Hoo hoo hoo, hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo
Hoo hoo hoo, hoo hoo hoo hoo
Hoo hoo hoo, hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo
Hoo hoo hoo, hoo hoo hoo hoo

To the center of the city
Where all roads meet, waiting for you
To the depths of the ocean
Where all hope sank, searching for you

Well I was moving through the silence without motion
Waiting for you
In a room without a window in the corner
I found truth

Ahhh, ahhh, ahhh

In the shadowplay acting out your own death
Knowing no more
As the assassins all grouped in four lines
Were dancing on the floor

And with cold steel odor on their bodies
Made a move to connect
But I could only stare in disbelief
As the crowds all left

I did everything
Everything I wanted to
I let them use you
For their own ends
To the center of the city in the night
Waiting for you
To the center of the city in the night
Waiting for you

Hoo hoo hoo, hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo
Hoo hoo hoo, hoo hoo hoo hoo
Hoo hoo hoo, hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo
Hoo hoo hoo, hoo hoo hoo hoo
