Life on telephones/Love on open roads
Into great unknowns I stumble brightly
Indigo/breathless yet
I'll link to your regret
Sunflowers as teachers pets/Bent from lightning
I'll bet/I'll bend for you
Shadows give your light to me
Shadows give your light to me

In the ways the city pours itself out
You can make this happen
Beyond your doubt
You can make this happen all right now

Eastern days I'm unafraid/cause love to me is such a game
That I believe I can't embrace/the dreams of lovers
Shadows give your light to me
Shadows give your light to me

In the ways the city pours itself out
You can make this happen
Beyond your doubt
You can make this happen all right now

Zen baby/lightning strikes
The same heart/but never twice
Zen baby/we've got to fight
What's real and what becomes the night

In the ways the city pours itself out
You can make this happen
Beyond your doubt
You can make this happen all right now

    General CommentThis song is a tribute to Electric Prunes bassist, Mark Tulin. He played the Pumpkins for a little while and was a good friend of Billy's. This song was actually written for the Electric Prunes, but Billy took it back so he could use it as a tribute.

    I found this song better with repeat listens. Actually took me a couple listens to really feel/understand it. Looking forward to free track number 10 to complete the 3rd EP for Teargarden. Looking forward to the EP after that even more.
