Well it took a long time but you've finally worn out your smile
That's when I knew it
I've run outta bar a time?
You always used to say that you could learn a lot through wasting time
And that if you look hard
You'll see yourself in your lovers eyes

Your time is near it won't be long
You've got to go when you're called upon
No light of day no sight of dawn
Don't turn around just walk right on

You came riding into town with a black and white five and ten
Said I'll be your captain
And take you back home again
It's your third time around but you know I'll get a second wind
But if we ever get there they'll be no one there to let us in

Your time is near it won't be long
You've got to go when you're called upon
You caught me dancing in the street last night
You walked right past me into the light

Packed up my souvenirs, tied my shoes, and sold my car
Yes I should have known it
I'd never get very far
Ever since we've met you've been a hungry and a restless child
You're just like your father
You know he's got a poison mind

Your time is near it won't be long
You've got to go when you're called upon
You said you and me we'd never will pretend
But my broken soul is never gonna mend

    (2nd line). I've run out of borrowed time . Amongst many other errors concerning the words. But I hate to sound snoody. It pretty much amazes me that no one else has commented on the poetry in this song (for lack of a better term). (last line) "(a) broken soul is never gonna mend. not (my) Love how Caesar Vidal uses the word soul instead of heart. They allways say that broken hearts will someday mend, but what about when your very soul is broken?

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.
