Around My Grave by Dead Men Talking
Official music video here:


Somewhere in it there's a song
This life of mine
A whole collection of singing postcards flying
like prayer flags in the desert wind
But it's only the beginning
I was only born at dawn
Tangled in the twisted pines
Of the California sun

Oh Mama, I think I'm lost
And I think you warned me not to cross
Oh Daddy, I think I've been saved
I'm chasing dreams around my grave

Before the diamond stars sell themselves to the night
I'd like to steal one and hide it's light
So when I'm done with all this running around
Got kids, a wife, all settled down
Then when I'm old, beyond repair
I'll sell my diamond to the gatekeeper

These are desperate times in a dark, dark world
But won't you dance with me on the sinking ship
The earthquake sleeps yet and the oil still flows
It's the devil's path, but it's paved in gold
