Carbon Ribs

This song is by John Mark McMillan and appears on the album The Medicine (2008).

Original video
A thousand pairs of fiery eyes
Burn like the serpent
Down the hwy 5
As the long amber tail
Of los angeles unwinds
I've got resurrection
Down inside my skin
But for all my revelating
I just can't make sense
Of this gravity we're in

Cause I'm a dead man now
With a ghost who lives
Within the confines of
These carbon ribs
And one day
When I'm free I will sit
The cripple at your table
The cripple by your side

A thousand miles
Of pain I'm sure
Led you to the threshold
Of my heart's screen door
To tell me what it is I'm dying for
Gravity comes
Like a cold cold rain
To lead me to the rope again
But someone is standing
In my place

Cause I'm a dead man now
With a ghost who lives
Within the confines of
These carbon ribs
And one day
When I'm free I will sit
The cripple at your table
The cripple by your side
And I sit beside you
And I sit beside you
