LyricBob Dylan/Dylan ThomasSong/Poem
The grievers grieve among the street burned to tireless death
Well, I set my monkey on the log/And ordered him to do the Dog/He wagged his tail and shook his head/And he went and did the Cat instead
The heavenly ambulance drawn by a wound/Assembling waits for the spade's ring on the cage.
Over the choir minute I hear the hour chant/Time's coral saint and the salt grief drown a foul sepulchre
And you who philosophize disgrace and criticize all fears/Take the rag away from your face
A bald wig for Jack the Ripper who sits/At the head of the chamber of commerce.

The kings of Tyrus with their convict list/Are waiting in line for their geranium kiss
The drunken politician leaps/Upon the street where mothers weep/And the saviors who are fast asleep/They wait for you

Well, I rush into your hallway/Lean against your velvet door/I watch upon your scorpion/Who crawls across your circus floor
So sing your praise of progress and of the Doom Machine/The naked truth is still taboo whenever it can be seen
Peck, sprint, dance on fountains and duck time/Before I rush in a crouch the ghost with a hammer, air,
