We laid down deep in the cold war
Packed our bags and set sail for the north shore
The memories of Spain that we never made
Still wait in Barcelona
Under the shade of old palisades
With Miller and Hemingway

Raise High

The candidate comes, she has dust in her pockets
So eager to trade her life for a chain, her love for a locket
But the candidate came and no one was saved
So they're closing the polls
Around when the rain has come to claim
What we can't even save

Raise High

After the war, with blood in the water
My albatross in an ocean of red
After the war, we'll rise again

It took you too long to wave your goodbye to me
But I'll raise high
