Lyrics
Sundown, only light, no sound
Another long-lost day never found
Shot down, don’t believe no foolish clown
He’ll go away until he hears a special sound

Building and searching for more…

Rotten town, I’ve got to get out tonight
I’ll turn to brown if I don’t shout, alright!
You keep me here and feed me the beer
You say that I like
You go away until you need a special favor
You’re all my life is not about
You give me reasons, more reasons for me to break out

And went I get time away from home
I wander back to the place I used to roam
And there I find the deer with the golden eye
He sees all, but only when he really tries
And there is a fox who stalks the briar patch
But all he found was the egg that wouldn’t hatch
So far from home, an eagle soars alone
Her bird’s eye view can’t find the golden key to the throne

Hideaway, come find me today, some way
You’ll take me in if I have no sins to pay, okay?

Sundown, only light, no sound
Another long-lost day never found
Shot down, don’t believe no foolish clown
He’ll go away until he hears a special sound
Oh no, gotta go
Although I’ve tried so hard to make it right
It just hasn’t worked out so far
For the deer with the golden eye, just now has to say goodbye
“Goodbye”

Analysis: A true hybrid of a song, with the electric guitars, vocals, and harpsichord recorded in 1988 and the acoustics, bass, drums, and some vocal overdubs done in 1990. It was all mixed together in 2004, for a unique, journey of a song which comes full circle.
