An eerie banjo-tinged Knopfler-esque scenario from the perspective of the stranger in all of us seeking safe harbor in a strange land. A deft story set in an easy to listen to cinema-esque soundscape.

Lyrics

Testament

Fourteen days and fourteen nights
We move in the dark and hide in the light
Cause everybody knows when it comes to a fight
Someone’s bound to lose

The Good Book says you reap what you sow
And the last will be first, not the first ones to go
And where you gonna go when you can’t go home
And no one waits for you

Heaven knows what is right
But this weary bird in flight
Needs to know when it’s safe
To come down

Heaven knows what is right
But this weary bird in flight
Needs to know when it’s safe
To come down

So who’s gonna rise and who’s gonna fall
And who’s gonna turn away from us all
And who’s gonna come when they hear the call
And the angels sing

Now I have a dream that keeps me awake
I’m out on a ship tossed in the waves
And there on the shore I can see your face
Looking out for me

Heaven knows what is right
But this weary bird in flight
To save its soul, with all its might
Swinging low just out of sight
Needs to know when it’s safe
To come down
