You sent your silvery warning
Black horizon storming, storming
Summer steam in the morning
Oh Stanislaus, don't hold your breath for me

You were a beautiful fable
Swept your dirt under the table, table
I'd trade your oak for a maple
Oh Stanislaus, don't hold your breath for me

Saw you, saw you 'neath my window
Saw your, saw your body flowing down
They said, said you would enchant me
But I know, I know where you're going now

Used to play along your shore
Swam above your sandy floor, floor
Beckon me unto your door
Oh Stanislaus, don't waste your time on me

You showed your glittering meadow
Beneath the hemlocks and the meadow's nettles
You tried to lure from the meadow
Oh Stanislaus, don't waste your gold on me

Saw you, saw you 'neath my window
Saw your, saw your body floating down
They said, said you were enchanting
But I know, I know where you're going now
I know where you're going now

You sent your silvery warning
Black horizon storming, storming
Summer steam in the morning
Oh Stanislaus, don't hold your breath for me
Oh Stanislaus, don't hold your breath for me
