lyrics

(For the folks back home in the Okolona area of Louisville, Kentucky)

A zero crossing points to now and back then
Wake those dead memories and make them beg
All those streets all these houses but no friends
Wander back into the skull of your zombie head

Okolona's far away
Space and time are outta phase
And there's nowhere you are safe
Okolona

The quarry's filled and the stars they've all changed
And the sounds that are filling up this town are rearranged
No time to cross another sin off of your list
Disenchanted disillusionment and dissed

Okolona's far away
Space and time is just a phrase
Like killing time and being saved
Okolona

Seeing trouble doesn't help--you just see red
Skate away into the night where there's no bed
The words are written in your blood on the wall
How much pain in this world have you caused?

Okolona's far away
Space and time is just a phase
Where nothing matters anyway

Okolona's far away
Space and time are outta phase
And there's no where to escape
Okolona
