I saw old women waiting at the bus stop, with the rain coming down.
And I saw people circling like buzzards to the tune of the traffic below.
I know.
Let the wheels turn slowly.
I know.
Let the lights go down.

Teachers with brandy in their coffee.
Younger cousins getting excited about a movie.
I know.
Let the lights go down right now.
I know.
Let the parents go out for a night on the town.

Taking turns making phone calls to old relatives.
Stuttering into the phone.
I know.
Let the words find their own way out.
I know.
Let the lights go down, let the lights go down.

On your own now, leave again.
Find a home and learn to lower your hands.
