Stolen Car
I walk through a field around the edge of my town
Just beneath an autumn sun a sky settles down
White clouds shroud a golden soil
Every year I pray alone in the temple of fallen skies
...for stolen lives
People I've known...
like stolen ground
Cut short by the thief of time
Alone I ask to see them once again...
A silent sunset like a Raven's eye watches me
A pair of headlights along a country road passes by
Stolen car like stolen lives...I ask no more
A long walk takes me to my town
It's 1980... 
I see a passing headlight along the dark edge of time,
like a fallen prayer that's settled down
