There is a town in north Ontario
With dream comfort memory to spare
And in my mind I still need a place to go
All my changes were there

Blue, blue windows behind the stars
Yellow moon on the rise
Big birds flying across the sky
Throwing shadows on our eyes

Leave us
Helpless, helpless, helpless
Baby can you hear me now
The chains are locked and tied across the door,
Baby, sing with me somehow

Blue, blue windows behind the stars
Yellow moon on the rise
Big birds flying across the sky
Throwing shadows on our eyes

Leave us
Helpless, helpless, helpless
Helpless, helpless, helpless
Helpless, helpless, helpless
Helpless, helpless, helpless

    Song Meaning2 ontological states of being:
    1st vs. - in your head; poetically and in a personal response captures all the ways we store and represent our reality (Kant - I think, therefore I am) as an internal process (even in commheterce with "the world"). This is where most of us "live" almost all of our waking lives.
    2nd vs. - integrated oneness of being; not a representation of 'reality,' but direct experience ... those beautiful zen moments we are occasionally blessed with BUT
