All matters put aside
we push the windows open wide
it's a gesture as you do on the first day
I felt a sudden urge to run
like a torso in the sun
waking up after a century of bad luck

The parlor is a womb
the house a brightly lit tomb
I think we should always be outside
where somewhere on the street
someone is calling out for me
I should go out and see what it' s all about

I remember the night
when I entered into your light
and happiness ran through our wires
with a clear and heavy sound
from the body we just found
that is red, that is warm
and that moans when you touch it

And just what is this light?
This bright and burning fright
it's what causes the image to appear
and the garden in bloom
is prettiest in the dark room
when its features glow with radiant wires

We saw him last night
the painter on the bridge
crying out 'cause he is slowly going blind
but as a final work of art
he wants to be flying around the yard
unattended and released from his own weight

You nearly split my face in half
when we collided in the hallway
in the hallway
The sun is going down
and the rain falls in an old way
in an old way
We're out on the street now
come on and show me your way
your way
