I hope the painful memories only flex their power over you
Focus on the parts that make you feel good
Easy to recognize, black bandages on my eyes
Find a few cul-de-sacs of my own, there's only one place this road ever ends up
Nothing in the shadows but the shadow hands
I'm gonna lock 'em up tight and eat jam out of the jar all night
Transfiguration's going to come for me at last
You smile as you ease the gun from my hand
We were the one thing in the galaxy
See the sunset turning red, let all be quiet in your head
I will find a crowd and blend in for a minute, and I will try to find
His paw hits the horn, I am going to regret
I sang all night, the moon shone on me through the trees
Held under these smothering waves by your strong and thick-veined hand, but one of these days
He took your hand there in the skating the rink
Click your heels, count to three
Ride the sentimental rodeo down to where the shadows grow
And 24 hours later, you had left me completely alone
I said a small prayer for the poor and the naked and the hungry
When death came calling today, I heard the gentle grace of his cadences
Everybody else looks tiny, I could almost smell the fear
And we love these dogs that roll on the lawns here in Galesburg
When the blade hits the bone, everybody hears it sing, shower room full of people
In the unstoppable camera of my mind's eye,
And the dream went on forever, one single static frame
I bet against the chances that you'd ever be mine
Someday something's coming from way out beyond the stars to kill us while we stand here
When I come up empty-handed the feeling almost overwhelms me
Draw my arms into my hospital gown
When you punish a person for dreaming his dream
In the fresh light of day, I felt something falling away
Because from where we are now, it seems, really,
The Canterbury Tales will shoot up to the top of the best seller list
The last of something bright burning, still burning
Throw my better self overboard
The wind began to wail, and you gathered your hair behind your head
And we lay there together in the darkness
Springtime's coming, that means you'll be coming back around
This morning I went down to the Catholic Church, 'cause something just came over me
I know that one of us, I'm not saying who,
And along the highway where unlucky stray dogs bleed
Dance in a circle with bells on
Let some mysterious chunk of space debris
Let it all fill with smoke
Flip on the high stakes radio
I wanna sing one for the cars
On the day that I forget you
I want to say I'm sorry for stuff I haven't done yet
And slowly, surely I saw the whole story unwind
Be ready and be brave, and remember what we had here
And we dance like drunken sailors
And high above the water the eagle spots the fish
Make up magic spells
Aren't you that old wrestler with the bullwhip?
A tiger's never gonna change its stripes I guess, I guess
Count a couple of stray hopes outloud
Where the dead will walk again, put on their Sunday best
I stood there like a business man waiting for the train
God bless all vampires every night
Rummage through the gutter storehouse now
