On the night that my love broke through
On the night that my love broke through
Revelations that came unglued
On the night that my love broke through

Cell doors were opened,
God stepped out the way,
Prisoners got one acre of land and one year's pay.

Flower's long since dead
Stiffened at the neck.
Colours came back in green and yellow and in red.

Unemployed cowboys
Staggered on Fairfax.
Trucks pulled up and fifteen men hollered and hopped in back.

A copy of Vechouski[?],
At the bottom of the stack,
Got picked up by some dropout who read it front to back

Send me out the tin hands of the past![?]

Hands are crawling out of
Grimy bathtub drains.
Janitor was laughing, he had finally gone insane.

City buses swerving,
Arriving right on time.
Vending machines were serving glasses of white wine by the dime.

Street lights got a burst of
Electricity.
Sparks danced across windshields like a grand finale.

Metal detectors beeping,
Sound was deafening.
Everywhere bleeding at dug up wedding rings.

We all stopped to listen to it sing!

On the night that my love broke through
On the night that my love broke through
Revelations that came unglued..
On the night that my love broke through
On the night
On the night
On the night
On the night
