Kicking Up The Dirt (Highways and Ghosts)

(Garth Michael McDermott)
When do we spike the drinks? I'm partially drawn to the therapy
If this is swim or sink, I'm only as deep as my memory

So then who's gonna falter first
We're part of a shell of a universe
Where heaven or hell isn't better or worse
And sifting through the earth is just kicking up the dirt

I was looking through the fence, you were pressing your face upon the glass
We were leaning up against the walls of our past with a stone to cast

Thinking who's gonna falter first
We're part of a shell of a universe
Where heaven or hell isn't better or worse
And sifting through the earth is just kicking up the dirt

Small repairs that are tended to now make us so much stronger than this
How will you fare on a new fairground?
Can you make up the time that you missed?
Can you tell it like it is?

So then who's gonna falter first
We're part of a shell of a universe
Where heaven or hell isn't better or worse
And sifting through the earth is just kicking up the dirt
