Wise on a birthday party, in a world
Full of surprising fireworks and sudden silence. Shh...
Lies on a stranger's bed
The new day breaks like a speeding train
Or an old friend ever expected, but never knocking.
Holding your own in a battered car,
All night parties, cocktail bars
And smile when the butterfly escapes the killing jar.

Sure eyes awake before the dancing is over
Wise or naked in secret Oktober

Freefall on a windy morning shore
Nothing but a fading track of footsteps
To prove that you'd ever been there.
Spoken on a cotton cloud like the sound of gunshot
Taken by the wind, and lost in distant thunder.

Racing on a shining plain
Tomorrow you'll be content to watch as the lightning plays along the wires, and you'll wonder...

Sure eyes awake before the dancing is over
Wise or naked in secret Oktober

Sure eyes awake before the dancing is over
Wise or naked in secret Oktober
