A restless sleep
I dreamed a dream the other night
Where I rode the back of this blackbird in flight
He took me down just to see what I could sow
Another light in this big city glow

When I touched down
I hardly recognized the place no more
Cause now there were signs
And they hung from every door

One said "Please"
One said "No"
And one said "Sure"
One said "Be careful, boy, you know it ain't safe no more"

One body breaks, one body's born
One seam is sewn, you know one seam is torn
One person waits for a sign that'll never come
One person lives each day like it's their last setting sun

I met a man and he wore a diamond ring
Said the path we take, well it can be a funny thing
Have you heard them trumpets sound?
Have you heard those angels sing?
And I cried: Dear Lord, won't you spare me, please?

His face grew red and his voice, well, it went higher
Goddamn you boy, you're gonna be fodder for the fire
I clicked my heels as I lit up a cigarette
And I cracked a smile, said: "Try not to forget"

One body breaks, one body's born
One seam is sewn, you know one seam is torn
One person waits for a sign that'll never come
One person lives each day like a sell-out setting sun
