Visit mysterious fields
See them with small courage
There you will come to a bird
She may scream the word
But if that's what you think you heard
Then that's what you've heard
And if that's what you want to hear
Then that's what I will tell you

Black with the morning
The storm, and the morning star, its
Look, we are angels, or was
From a pregnant sky
And if that's where you think you'll go
Then that's where you'll go
And if that's what you want to feel
Then that's what I will sell you
And I'll come back, translucent and peeled
At Huffman Prairie Flying Field

I've come to start up my head
Been closed and locked up
For far too long
For far too long
For far too long
For far too long

    General Commenta few corrections, it should be:

    Black without warning
    The storm and the morning star
    It's look! we are angels on wires
    From a pregnant sky

    General CommentIt's one of my favourites too. It has some great build ups particularly just before the end's "For far too long".

    I'm amazed that this song has such a strange title then found out it was where the Wright Brothers invented flight. Even more amazing is that the lyrics fit.
    I'm so used to GBV songs with quirky indecipherable lyrics.

    General CommentThis song along with GBV closing with "Don't Stop Now" at their last live show is perhaps the most perfect way they could have gone out.

    General CommentTrough lyrical medium Pollard throws splashes of imagery on a canvas of jagged disconnected thought bubbles. He is the Pablo Picasso of Rock and Roll lyrics.
