Crucify the blinding sky for light
Love's lover is like a lightning rod
Howling wind has been heard in my head
Dead dreamers in a burning car

Your mind is a diamond blue and green
Shining out through your eyes like falling leaves
When you open your mouth a swarm of bees will appear

My dear steer clear, have no fear
For you know just what they call you here:
You're the laughing lover covered in tears

Steal away the sun, the moon and stars
Start simple with a woman's voice
Wisdom lingers on the fingers of the fortress
Like a lazy ghost

Your mind is a dragon of dying bird
Like to circle the flames singing words unheard
When you're death like a thread pulls you in and your lover herds
My dear its clear have no fear

For you know just what they call you here: you're the laughing lover covered in tears

Sanctify the blinding sky for light weaves wonders out of bits of clay
Howling wind has been heard in my head breaking bread, but in a gentle way

Your mind is a diamond blue and green
Shining out through your eyes like falling leaves
When you open your mouth a swarm of bees will appear

My dear its clear have no fear
For you know just what they call you here you're the laughing lover covered in tears
