the dark, the stars, the dirt, the snow

from by rushmore beekeepers



written March 20, 2018


something about nights being so dark
can't see my hand in front of my face
getting lost on my way back home
seeing a little further out in space

the way the stars shine out here
makes me dread going back to the city
i could never live in the middle of nowhere
but there has to be somewhere in between

something about walking on a dirt road
it's a different feel wherever you go
faces and voices with slight variations
people living lives i will never know

something about snow in the desert
it's beautiful, seems so out of place
when i travel this all kinda runs together
it's anywhere and i’m up for the chase

the way the stars shine
