The spring is in the streets again and too many seasons gone by
We move to cruise and stare at ourselves
Hoping to find
Someone half-blind
Somebody who
Will make us knew
To hold in the night
Guard us from fright
Change all thats gone for the new

While in our very city there lives a Unicorn of old
The Queen that holds the Unicorn
Will be reborn
His mighty horn
Falls on that day
Storms pass away
Night turns to day
The whole world is gay
Angels descend from the sky

The trucks are cold and barren again and the numbers have all turned to jade
I search for a way to tear out my eyes
So I won't see
The dying tree
Fall to its knees
and as it must
with fragments of lust
Return to dust
Then we are gone in the night

While in our very city there lives a real live Unicorn
the Queen who captures the Unicorn
is virgin again
just touching its hand
wisdom is hers
focus from blurs
possessing the key
brings life to the tree
and makes it grow taller again

the Sanctuary's crowded again
the poisons are all passed around
Each star walks in, we turned to the door
Our eyes leave our head
the zombies are dead
just walking around
held to the ground
our feet our bound
obeying each sound
waiting to meet god knows who

While in our very city there lives a Unicorn of Old
The Queen who holds the Unicorn
Will be reborn
His mighty horn
Falls on that day
Storms pass away
Night turns to day
The whole world is gay
Angels descend from the sky
