There on the threshold below to the garden
In front of the rest of the city that ends at the
Banks of the river and stretches back to me and
Holds a square patch of backyard where I’m looking at
Bunches of children, some vexed at their parents,
Take colorful strings draped cross branches of lemon and
Orange (?) from the ends of it, seemed like
I can not see nothing covering the canopy

(And I feel the breezes blow, pushing storms on my arms,
I'm out on the tips of spires, you can stare into the sea)

    Lyric CorrectionThe "(?)" is "lit" I believe.

    Lyric CorrectionI think rather than it being "I can not see nothing covering the canopy" he is saying " I can not see nothing underneath the canopy."

    General Commenti hear "i see nothing beneath the red canopy, which makes sense if he's on some spires looking down, and it has some nice red imagery to go with the orange and yellow from the fruits.
