Recorded at Headgear and Lord Baltimore with Chris Moore.
Keep to the outside of your skin
pulling apart all the needles and pins
Filter the twilight through your bones
Savour the highlights nobody notices
Always remember the tenderness of spring
materialized into timeless points of view
all the dances of your youth
leaving pretenders and benders
all the past behind
Hold on to your friends!
Follow the night that overflows
into a swirling murmur of souls
Everyone here is so enthralled
flowering dreams to be more bizarre
Follow the heat of one you love
all the mystique of one you love
I love you forever, whatever that might mean
I wish I could split myself in two
but I can't, no I can't
teach me the answer to these riddles
what do they mean?
Materialized into timeless points of view
all these dances, dances of my youth
Take what, you can!
