    "Farewell Transmission" Lyrics

    Songs: Ohia feat. Magnolia Electric Co.

    The whole place is dark
    Every light on this side of the town
    Suddenly it all went down
    Now we'll all be brothers of the fossil fire of the sun
    Now we will all be sisters of the fossil blood of the moon
    Someone must have set us up
    Now they'll be working in the cold grey rock,
    in the hot mill steam... in the concrete
    In the sirens and the silences now
    all the great set up hearts
    all at once start to beat
    After tonight if you don't want us to be

    a secret out of the past
    I will resurrect it, I'll have a good go at it
    I'll streak his blood across my beak and dust my feathers with his ashes
    I can feel his ghost breathing down my back
    I will try and know whatever I try,
    I will be gone but not forever
    The real truth about it is
    no one gets it right
    The real truth about it is
    we're all supposed to try
    There ain't no end to the sands
    I've been trying to cross
    The real truth about it is my kind of life's no better off
    If I've got the maps or if I'm lost
    The real truth about it is there ain't no end to the desert I'll cross
    I've really known that all along
    Mama here comes midnight
    with the dead moon in its jaws
    Must be the big star about to fall
    Long dark blues
    Will o the wisp
    The big star is falling
    Through the static and distance
    A farewell transmission
