Clock strikes twelve and moon drops burst
Like acid and oil on a madman's face
Like lesser birds on the four winds, yeah
Now the sands become a crust

Just out there upon the beach
And you want to know where the winds come from
On the map that Carrie reads
At the four winds bar (hm, yeah)
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Two doors locked and windows barred
The other one just mirrors it
In hellish glare and inference
The queenly flux, eternal light
Yes the light, that never, never warms
Never warms, never warms
The clock strikes twelve and moon drops burst
Miss Carrie nurse and Suzy dear
It's the nexus of the crisis
Just the place to hopelessly


These gravely digs of mine
And don't forget my dog, fixed and consequent
Astronomy, a star
Astronomy, a star

Clock strikes twelve and moon drops burst
Like acid and oil on a madman's face
Like lesser birds on the four winds, yeah
Now the sands become a crust

Just out there upon the beach
And you want to know where the winds come from
On the map that Carrie reads
At the four winds bar (hm, yeah)
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Two doors locked and windows barred
The other one just mirrors it
In hellish glare and inference
The queenly flux, eternal light
Yes the light, that never, never warms
Never warms, never warms
The clock strikes twelve and moon drops burst
Miss Carrie nurse and Suzy dear
It's the nexus of the crisis
Just the place to hopelessly


These gravely digs of mine
And don't forget my dog, fixed and consequent
Astronomy, a star
Astronomy, a star
