Track #6 on Neruda

Walking The Fine Line

Lost my job in that darkest place
Going to get back up
Clean my face
And take that longest ride
I talked to the man
With the busy pen
Tired of being on the losing end
I'm going to walk with pride

Walking that fine line
Between the sun and the sky
The smoke and the steel you and me
Taking that longest ride
Crack the sky
But get out alive this time

Me and my friend we been up all night
Had a drink on John, had a drink on the mine
Now we'll leave this ghost town

She said "show me a good man
I'll show you a slave,
Show me a free man,
I'll show you the brave.
Hold your head up high"

Never had the guts to turn it around
Never had the guts to tear it down
Now we got the chance to

We're walking that fine line
Between a man and a slave
The wind and the sea you and me
Taking that longest ride
Crack the sky
Get out alive this time

Walking that fine line
Between the wind and the sea
The smake and the steel you and me
Taking that longest ride
Crack the sky
Then get out alive this time
Walking that fine line
Walking that fine line
Taking the longest ride
Crack the sky
But get out alive this time
