Lyrics

Into the Fourth World

Written By: Nathan Asher, Music Nathan Asher and the Infantry

Can a man be torn down like a shopping mall
you took a hammer to my walls.
Can a woman be changed, like a channel's changed,
trading one face for another face.
We go driving by the docks again, we go driving by the docks in the summer, we don't feel anymore.

And it's silence in the trees, no breeze, no leaves move and no one speaks, she sits on my right side riding.

Can a man be lost, like the car keys,
go on, replace me.
Can a woman turn off, like a faucet turns off,
one day, the feeling is just gone.
We go driving by the docks again, we go driving by the docks in the summer, we don't feel anymore.
And it's silence in the trees, no breeze, no leaves move and no one speaks, she sits on my right side riding.

Overcast highway, Anna beside me, out there the freeway sounds like the ocean, nothing is moving, nothing is in motion, sit by the freeway, sit by the freeway

Silence in the trees, no breeze, no leaves move and no one speaks, she sits on my right side riding, Silence in the trees, no breeze, no leaves move and no one speaks, she sits on my right side riding.
