Alone. Listless. Breakfast table in an otherwise empty room
Trade winds find galleons lost in the sea / I know where treasure is waiting for me
Whenever you're wrong, admit it / Whenever you're right, shut up
I suffered like a metal being cast / I went to school to age to learn the past
There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
She's got eyes of the bluest skies / As if they thought of rain
There is a place where the sidewalk ends / And before the street begins / And there the grass grows soft and white
Such beauty that for a minute / Death and ambition, even love / Doesn't enter into this
Let him who hath understanding reckon the number of the beast / For it is a human number
Take a small example, take a tip from me / Take all of your money, give it all to charity
Philosophers and ploughmen / Each must know his part / To sow a new mentality
In the Bible Cain slew Abel and East of Eden he was cast
I'm rolling thunder, pouring rain / I'm coming on like a hurricane
I am the maker of rules / Dealing with fools / I can cheat you blind
I don't shout or jump about / Or have to talk real loud / When you see me passing / It ought to make you proud
so world is a leaf is a tree is a bough / (and birds sing sweeter than books tell how)

Look at the stars / Look how they shine for you / And everything you do
So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see / So long lives this, and this gives life to thee
My later loves on 15th Street / My greater loves of Lower East Side / My once fabulous amours in the Bronx
Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December / And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor
Help! I need somebody / Help! Not just anybody / Help! You know I need someone, help!
Memories will slowly fade / I lift my eyes and say / Come on, take me away
I've been around for a long, long year / Stole many a man's soul and faith
Tyger! Tyger! burning bright / In the forests of the night
I came up once and hollered! / I came up twice and cried!
Come! vouchsafe to me what has yet been vouchsafed to none / Tell me the whole story
But all this crowded life has been to thee / No more than lyre, or lute, or subtle spell
There is another sky / Ever serene and fair / And there is another sunshine / Though it be darkness there
Money, so they say / Is the root of all evil today
In this bright future you can't forget your past
We sat together at one summer's end / That beautiful mild woman, your close friend
Soon, soon the flesh / The grave cave ate will be / At home on me
