Eli sat by the window, with his fingers on the table.
All the brains, paper, pencils circled 'round him, tried to zero in.
Mental image of the fretboard on his right hand caught his eye, like the sunbeam from the window,
and the glass hit his face.
It made sixteen cuts above his jaw!
It was said, he was dead.
He remains on two inch tape.
In the storm of poison that rode South through Yonkers,
beat Manhattan, like a skull beats its mirror.
Did you see that? Hey, there.
The black coat and the white hair.
Frostbite is in the air.

I'm not afraid of that man, I'm not afraid of the beasts who killed him,
I'm not afraid of the box I live in, or the holes I sleep in.
I'm afraid of the bleeding in my brain, and the rusted metal in my chest.
When the glass hit my face,
it shot eighteen years of energy out of a cannon!
Crystal said, when I'm dead,
I'll be remembered by my friends.
As a machine, so efficient,
I was almost living and breathing.
Did you see that? Hey, there.
The black coat and the white hair.
Frostbite is in the air.

Mental image of the steel strings on my right hand struck a chord,
like the electric man behind the wall.
and a hand hit my face.
It sent raging up my ribcage!
Sparrow said, we're all dead,
and there must be something wrong in my head.
When I shot out of that cannon,
I was almost living and breathing.
Did you see that? Hey, there.
The black coat and the white hair.
Frostbite is in the air.
