Lyrics

At the Edge
(c) 2018 Kristina Stykos

We’re at the edge, standing in the glitter glow
The ripples of the river light slide on by
Let’s get ready speaking not duplicity
Dodging no reality and put things right

‘Cause the man is at the door
Ready to make his play
Who’s gonna be his whore
As he talks the truth away
Can’t even face the past
Or reckon with it honestly
The things that they put last
Are the things that they can’t see

We’re all refugees walking in a heavy rain
Struggling to find what’s left in the heart
But we’re ready, ready for a steady wheel
Gonna finally heal what drove us apart

‘Cause the man is at the door
Ready to make his play
Who’s gonna be his whore
As he talks the truth away
Can’t even face the past
Or reckon with it honestly
The things that they put last
Are the things that they can’t see

We’re at the edge, standing in the glitter glow
The ripples of the river light slide on by
But we’re ready, a revolutionary sky of blue
Overthrowing what we knew, for what we’ll be
