T Bone Burnett - Dope Island lyrics

We lived outside the law
We struck with wild desire
We blinded all we saw
We made the sun our fire

But now a line’s been crossed
Our intuition lost
Where yellow orchids bloomed
The land is scorched an doomed

We were both here and gone
We rode with cruel deceit
We took the moon at dawn
The stars fell at our feet

But now the die’s been cast
Our vision fading fast
Where rivers ran with gold
The fields are black and cold

Darkness falls through the banyan tree
Beating wings of no birds
Waves of loneliness break on me
In the sound of no words

But now the night’s gone dead
The hours filled with dread
Where blue magnolias laid
The colors twist and fade

We lived outside the law
We struck with wild desire
We blinded all we saw
We made the sun our fire.
