Blue Ridge
Lyrics by Benton Crane, 2019
Music by Benton Crane/Ice Station Zebra

Through the ridges wind has formed 

Starry-scape silhouette is borne 

Threatened eyes & tired hands 

Won’t revive what the lord demands 

 

Treading light from across the way 

Push and pull a sunlit haze

Settled down and footstep ridden 

Rest assured the rest is hidden 

The rest is hidden in plain sight

This time I swear I won’t let you down 

Always sure to put up a fight

Never miss a step in your entire life

Witness fame and flashing lights 

Obscure possess a dayless night 

Lasting light with blinded fault

Misconceived but standing tall 

 

Now listen to the silent breeze 

Tricks left up unbuttoned sleeves 

Willful westward wind is yet

To blow the blue ridge road unkept 

The rest is hidden in plain sight

This time I swear I won’t let you down 

Always sure to be so light

Never miss a step in your entire life

I never thought I’d see the day 

Blue Ridge Road takes me far away
