lyrics

In rented space
Your bones replace one who has gone before
But there's an open door that will clamp its jaws
When you have run your race.
A dent in time you called your life
One lived by many before
But there's a hope for more far from the cross you bore
Closer than eyes shut tight.

The ring is always boxing the fighter
The book is always blocking the writer
And the sun won't make a difference, it always keeps its distance
The dog day star will always shine brighter.

You spent your pay on rainy days
Now that you're broke it pours
But the sunglasses you wore held to your face through wars
Onwards now to grace.

The ring is always boxing the fighter
The book is always blocking the writer
And the sun won't make a difference, it always keeps its distance
The dog day star will always shine brighter.
The ring is always boxing the fighter
The book is always blocking the writer
And the sun won't make a difference, it always keeps its distance
The dog day star will always shine brighter.
