"Incandescent Blue" as written by and Bruce Cockburn....
I sneaked across the border
It was threatening rain
So I could stand in this tunnel waiting for the roaring train
And watch those black kids working out Kung Fu moves
If you don't want to be the horses' footprints, you've got to be the hooves

Hear that lonesome violin play
See the notes float up into the overcast
And change to white birds as they sail on through
And soar away free into incandescent blue

People getting ready behind all these rectangles of light
"Put on your grin mask, babe
You know we're stepping out tonight"
You hear that sound like hammers, only small?
It's what people's heads say when they beat them against the wall

Concrete vortex sucks down the wind
It's howling like a blinded violin
Oh, tongues of fire, come down and kiss my brow
If I ever needed you, well, I need you now
