In the distance there gleams the sun
but the walls all make us a bit too numb
and restrictions keep us under our beds
ontop of the land
for one man dying is an atmosphere
of screaming thoughts
left for ears to fear in solemn slumber
creeps on poorly divine
but half of the time you gotta draw the line back

so we yell goodnight for those who try to fight
the wicked willows and towering tremolos
and weeping witches on barbwire fences
For those who fight the light
With might tucked down in fright
Give in to invention
The thought of suspension
With something more than an old time pension

We heard them say that it's wrong to go
but in truth we're extending out the flow
and the poll gets lost as we
forget the behind and leave it waiting to die
but in the sun the everlasting love extends
and says it's better all than some
and the bogged down lovelies
with their feet on the ground
and their eyes on the now
as they go 40 ounces down

so we yell goodnight for those who try to fight
the wicked willows and towering tremolos
and weeping witches on barbwire fences
For those who fight the light
With might tucked down in fright
Give in to invention
The thought of suspension
With something more than an old time pension

yesterday's a dying light
died for someone else to fear
leave it on the other side
so you gotta fight the tight-ass-like
styles of the ringing ears
the ones who posit themselves as the master's peers

Come and see the show
cause it's time to watch you go into the mystery
earn a couple dimes and set yourself aside to
let all of your mothers free
Come and see the show
cause it's time to watch you go into the mystery
earn a couple dimes and set yourself aside to
let all of your mothers free
set all of your mothers free
set your mothers free

come enjoy the mystery
