I am becalmed in virtue
Lost to nothing on a bay of dreams
Warm weather and a holocaust
The tears of God flow as I bleed

Left to die by two good friends
Abandoned me and put to sleep
On a shore where oyster beds
Seem plush as down
And ripe enough for the luxor dream

Recall the dream of luxor
How fluids will arrive
As if by call or schedule
Resume through the morning tide
Where entry is by seaweed gate
And plan the plan of dreams
To lose oneself in reverb
In all that is and all that seems

So ladies, fish, and gentlemen
Here's my angled dream
To see me in the blue sky bag
And meet me by the sea

The oyster boys are swimming now
To claim me back from the dead
The creatures back from vertigo
They fear to fall but haven't fell
Will reclaim tries and try again

The oyster boys are swimming now
Hear them chatter on the tide
Of the lost and language lost
Hear them chatter on the tide

We understand, we understand, we understand
And so do i
We understand, we understand
But fright is real
And so am i

So ladies, fish, and gentlemen
Here's my angled dream
To see me in the blue sky bag
And meet me by the sea

The entry to lost vestibule
Opens on the bay
An instant shape of mercury
Lost and then retained
An instant is an eyelash
Caught on the tide
Below this bay
And then besides...

The oyster boys are swimming now
One deal is what we made
Forest keys and whirlwind cold
Green keys too and keys of gold
Even locks that won't explode
When the skies become a scroll
Having lost it's interest
See that's the deal we made
Just to join the oyster cult
The blue oyster cult

We understand, we understand - blue oyster cult

    General CommentThe 4th song in the chronological order of the Imaginos saga. This is when Imaginos is left to die on a beach and the Blue Oyster Cult, basically aliens but also somehow related to the gods worshipped by Native American civilizations before Cortez, offer to save his life if he will become their minion on earth. Imaginos has no choice but to agree and it is because of this that he carries out his negative influences on the history of mankind.

    General CommentSince we've already got the meaning, it's time for mindless babble!

    I like this a lot better than "Subhuman" from Secret Treaties, in large part because it's easier to understand the words, and the lyrics to both of them (but this one especially) are just so ... cool.
