I was dreamin' of ships
In the evenin' sun
My tongue on the ocean
Made me feel all numb

There was no sadness,
no, honey, honey, nothing was wrong
Just cotton and velvet
you know I need not a song

The poet barks
mouth full of stars
says you better find someone
before it's too dark
Oh, before it's too dark

Oh, milky flowers
under the sun
and I, the king of nowhere
you know I'm still on the run

Oh, imaginary heroes
Goddamn, I'm as lonely as one
they got me talkin', they got me talkin' to the bluebirds
Oh, baby, where have I gone?

Now the poet barks
mouth full of stars
Says you better find someone
Before it's too dark

I think it's already too dark
I think it's already too dark

I woke up to the passin' of planes
On some silver day
And it stoned me to my soul
and honey I just floated around all day.

I can count my fingers...
I can count my fingers...
Now I can almost spell my name.
And every thirty seconds somethin' new
and every thirty seconds somethin' new
and every thirty seconds somethin' new.
