lyrics

I talk to the water in my father's well
Looking for stories that we didn't tell
Pull in the buckets from the water hole
We’re getting there slowly
walking right into the midst of our mind fields

You feed the horses to stay on the feet
"Stretch out a flat hand, your fingers won't bleed"
Secrets got lost in this snow
Dig in the sand don't throw it out your window
You feed the horses to stay on the ground
Look in the corner, the food that I´ve found

Wind in the dessert, sand is flying high
Man riding backwards while he catches a fly
My eyes in the distance watches the white beard kneel
He's digging up water, digging up slowly, leaving his mind field

You feed the horses to stay on the feet
"Stretch out a flat hand, your fingers won't bleed"
Secrets got lost in this snow
Dig in the sand don't throw it out your window
You feed the horses to stay on the ground
Look in the corner, the food that I´ve found

You feed the horses to stay on the feet
"Stretch out a flat hand, your fingers won't bleed"
Secrets got lost in this snow
Dig in the sand, don't throw it out your window
You feed the horses to stay on the ground
Look in the corner, the food that I´ve found
