I caught a glimpse of your eyes last night
In a restless dream
Waking out of green field blue seas and stars
Your eyes arise like the specters of flowers
I turned out the light and clicked fast the door
And the book falls

I had so many thoughts
So many signs
I made sense of nothing at all
His green dream is unreal
The crickets sing

Across deserts and plains
The lost feast
Their shimmering teeth are marking the passing of time
A cloud falls
A bird shivers and sings
Its beak is stained with night
Pure gold

The dark is waiting
The darkness is hungry
The deep is angry
And the telephone rings on
A film screen descends
And the silent movies play
Buster Keaton falls and rots
As Big Ben sings and boils on an endless swamp

The silence is treacle-thick
And calls us to prayer
Paint God with your blood
And fill haunted women with knives and kites and gauges and valves
And make them weep long hymns
To gaseous and clumsy mortality
While the fish descend

Remember, remember
Remember, remember
Remember, remember
Remember, remember
Oh the burning ember
Embedded in your chest
The soul watches TV and gorges itself on blood and popcorn
And that's what I call decay
And that's what I call decline
And that's what I call decadence and degeneration

Hard times, Mr. Lindsay?
You have stopped my watch at the stroke of three
And you call for the police
There's a time for tea
And a time for expiring
When your notice to quit is in the post

You should know
Your little cow and calf is gonna die

And God gave Noah the rainbow sign
And then he said "It's the fire next time"
God gave Noah the rainbow sign
And then he said "It's the fire next time"
God gave Noah the rainbow sign
And then he said "It's the fire next time"
God gave Noah the rainbow sign
And then he said "It's the fire next time"
God gave Noah the rainbow sign
And then he said "It's the fire next time"

And God gave Noah the rainbow sign
And then he said "It's the fire next time"
And God gave Noah the rainbow sign
And then he said "It's the fire next time"
And God gave Noah the rainbow sign
And then he said "It's the fire next time"

It's the fire next time
It's the fire next time
Oh it's the fire next time
It's the fire next time
