Strange signals the morning leaves, oh I see the birds up in the trees Does reality seem to glow to those who don't understand or know? Don't let me down for you're the one thing I believe in Disappear 'tween clouds of stone, not here where the old men sit and groan And palsy shakes the last few hairs, on the fossils of what once was there Don't let me down, for you're the one thing I believe in Need declare but am so weak, and my lungs won't pull the air to speak I feel my muscles atrophy, the time has come my friends I must leave Don't let me down, for you're the one thing I believe in And life, life, seems so right Wake me up, wake me up in the middle of the night And oh, to think Oh, to think, oh, to think, oh, to think No...

Find the time find the remains 88 years review the game Fight the hype, fight the shame Fight to be called by your rightful name Look up to the hills tattooed by master men Their names on your lips as the journey begins Been chasin' ghosts and lost rhythms And you'll know one day, you'll know In the sun in the snow Hidden under cathedrals you've never known On the hills on the land Truth lost in the water or buried in the sands Buried in the sands. Look up to the hills tattooed by master men Their names on your lips as the journey begins Been chasin' ghosts and lost rhythms And you'll know one day, you'll know Look up to the hills tattooed by master men Their names on your lips as the journey begins Been chasin' ghosts and lost rhythms And you'll know one day, you'll know

Step out the bone house to find yourself amongst the animals tonight Everybody's looking for that chance that last minute rush to get high But it's all right When the vultures come to feast I'll be the first to bite Cause I'm all night Prometheus' fire I'll wash the dark in light Pick up the Krypton stumble Sampson, you let someone in too close 'Cause you know the dope's always down at the watering hole down at 2nd and Coles But it's all right When the vultures come to feast I'll be the first to bite Cause I'm all night Prometheus' fire I'll wash the dark in light How they ignite Dynamite the stars and snuff out the light What closed sight Can break the confines of the anti socialite? But it's all right When the vultures come to feast I'll be the first to bite Cause I'm all night Prometheus' fire I'll wash the dark in light How they ignite Dynamite the stars and snuff out the light What closed sight Can break the confines of the anti socialite? Alright...

In that morning I wake up and try to make the best Of all these books and things that spark my interests Never could I be stuck behind the desk Wondering why I never took the risk Oh these motors won't fix themselves Can't start a block that wasn't built Well somethings just seem so obvious Funny how all things new deny that one day One day they'll rust Winter's day I was in my brother's '66 We were listening to Darkness (on the Edge of Town) The retired fields all seemed to sag with age Halted diesel engines on a December day Oh these motors won't fix themselves Can't start a block that wasn't built Well somethings just seem so obvious Funny how all things new deny that one day One day they'll... These lights, these lights warmingly bright I'm out on the highway The poison blinding my sight I see the city, the factory lights the foreman says, "You're done for life." I don't know, oh, I don't know where to go.

Machiavelli's round table has their chain mail on tonight In the streets of New York turning that East Village upright In the high rise castle walls princesses overdose on that sweet kiss And lost in New Jersey is that unfortunate young prince And those Baptismal waters flow Bells of Rhymney chime all alone Time flickers, fade away slow All weathering the cornerstone Weathering the cornerstone Dressed up so cocky, Ichabod unknowingly goes out tonight And winds up in Connecticut where the last of the Mohicans lies Even the lowliest servant knows that nothing is how it seems That American justice is the gallows or the guillotine Baptismal waters flow Bells of Rhymney chime all alone Time flickers, fade away slow All weathering the cornerstone Weathering the cornerstone There watching from the balcony sits Draco and his team Watching princes and paupers losing the New American Dream From the bay to the church walls Paul Revere's still beating that bad horse down And the Piper disappears into the woods without a sound Baptismal waters flow Bells of Rhymney chime all alone Time flickers, fade away slow All weathering the cornerstone Weathering the cornerstone And on a night like tonight, I'm Song of Myself collecting dust on the shelf You're a book of fairy tales, oh stories we all know so well Remember to light candles if you ever bring me out again And I promise to be all of those fairy tales
