Galaxies With Long Yellow Curtains

Silver saucers of space echo omnipresent Circles in the chrome high sky Lip are like fists for sexual knowledge of you and I And I will be giving you violets and white Whispering, I'll be giving you violets and white To change your mind Realizing that I simply know nothing is a Wonderful place to be Skin of steely milk for your air-conditioned silk, Is so honey-sucking chic And I will be giving you violets and white Pistol-whipping, I'll be giving you violets and white To change your mind Don't you see the stars? The stars will far for us You see, the stars will fall for us For us

Dive 04:04
I don't really know what I said, or what I'm saying But you don't really know how I really feel, Or how I'm aching I know it's over Fallen in a deep blue, oh I still miss your lemon smile Just take it all, take all that I have to give Don't dive in head first with another one Dive into another one Just take it all, take all that I have to give to you I don't want to be the one to say it But consider yourself a turnstile I don't want to be the one to say it But it's too late to walk backwards Just take it all, take all that I have to give to you I know it's over

I take along a lonely song to keep me warm Cause' out in space it's freezing and so far from home, from home I've got my orange space suit and love from a video screen Moon-walkin' thrilla machine There is no light of the silvery moon when you're floating in space, in space I'm on a rocket ship to galaxies with long yellow curtains Hung from stars, stars that still shine They still shine, shining down on Earth to show the world we're not alone I spent my last night of the Earth with the woman I love A wet and juicy de love Robots and ray guns light my way to the great beyond Beyond my eyes I'm on a rocket ship to galaxies with long yellow curtains Hung from stars, stars that still shine They still shine, shining down on Earth to show the world we're not alone

Mind Eraser 02:34
Got a mind eraser, "set to kill" on phaser my friend I'm the dream creator, defying laws of Nature again trippin' I fall down and then I wake up Saving all the monsters of plastic avocado green, Thorazine I'm the vinyl whispers of the 1970's machine I fall down and then I wake up A few light years away A sky of linoleum Going out just enough too far Space is the ocean Supersonic polka dots bleeding fire There is more than just one sun

Stumbling over the heads of lions Tumbling into the mouths of truth Letting their tongues lick my flesh I can say I love someone Feats of the desperate daring dives Majestic spectres from under the deep The mother of milky water rides I can say I love someone Unlimbering sub-lingual love... I can say I love someone

Yellow Sun 03:24
She comes in like a train wreck on national TV "Temporary disaster", she said it would be But it's alright, she still shines She always wanted a super-hero in 3D I'm not even close to that But it's alright, she doesn't mind... that much You and me in the yellow sun Letting our rays get soaked-up by every one I dreamt we were the sun, we were raging in the sky It was just a dream I had, just a stupid dream I had... once You and me in the yellow sun Letting our rays get soaked-up by every one
7.
I'm in the middle of the stars again We'll be the light in the deep blue sky I'm in the middle of a sacred swim We'll be the warmth on the back of the deep blue sea I'm in the middle of electric love Way out smiles through way out wires I'm in the middle of a strange conceit Sometimes you are who you meet More space than sky Dead and being alive I'm in the middle of finding myself In this dislocation daydream Dis-dislocation Day-daydream I'm in the middle of the stars again Too fast to touch too slow to see I'm in the middle of a sacred swim Manifest destiny is my plan More space than sky Dead and being alive Dis-dislocation Day-daydream

Sparkler 01:57
The icon sits glowing Like a roman candle Doesn’t think of the "ifs" Can’t take or give herself She has her excuses She was a sparkler Everyone wants her to spread She has her excuses

God said son "You're on your own and you're not the only one." We all have our place, our moment in the sun Then the nightshade goes down Oh I won't deny it, it's been one hell of a ride Taking me down into it I don't want to go, go fast or too slow Promises make liars of us all Because "never" will come, and "always" will go Just a hand drawn circle Love, just to love Not what you're used to thinking of Nothing in return Can't be the perfect us To forgive to to not forget Oh I won't deny it, it's been one hell of a ride Taking me down into it I don't want to go, go fast or too slow Promises make liars of us all Because "never" will come, and "always" will go Just a hand drawn circle

Nothing but tar and turpentine Vanishing the grandeur of the wilderness Thitherward in the black mud and yellow dust Twilighted with tallow candles and pigs of lead My lindsey woolsey shirt is drenched in sweat Breaking upon a wheel steeped in the marrow, a foretaste of heaven Brought to bare this petrified heart That's like throwing stones to the bottom Tramps and blatherskites lay down their drunken heads My lindsey woolsey shirt is drenched in sweat Oh I belong to this world. I long for the day and the night, But it won't be long until I leave it... Only the Lord can know the answer How can I turn cold yet burn with fever No providence to fall upon And no woman to call my name Just twilighted tallow candles and pigs of lead My lindsey woolsey shirt is drenched in sweat Oh I belong to this world. I long for the day and the night, But it won't be long until I leave it...

Giant 04:17
It was bigger than me, it was bigger than you it was giant I want to turn on, dark red is my sun, so sweet so Strong, crushed velvet is your skin I didn't see God through stained glass eyes The silence becomes loud and clear Don't say we're wrong It was bigger than me, it was bigger than you it was giant There's so many levels to this it's an inferno Kind of a thing, don't close you hand until I'm in it Don't close your mouth until I'm finished Through it, don't lose sight of what's real Don't say we're wrong It was giant
