Lions in the street and roaming
A beast caged in the heart of a city
Rotting in the summer ground

Left the chaos and disorder

With a strange creature groaning beside him

The ceremony is about to begin
Wake up!
Had this dream stopped?
The snake was pale gold
We were afraid to touch it
And she was beside me
Her dark red hair

I let my cheek slide down
Feel the good cold stinging blood

I liked to crawl back into my brain
I mean the game called 'go insane'
Now you should try this little game
Forget the world forget the people

Just close your eyes no way to lose
Release control we're breaking thru
Way back deep into the brain
And the rain falls gently on the town
And in the labyrinth of streams
Nervous hill dwellers in the gentle hills around
Fossils, caves, cool air heights
Each house repeats a mold
Beast car locked in against morning
Rugs silent, mirrors vacant
Wound in sheets
With semen eyes in their nipples

Your gloves and fan are on the ground
We're going on the run

Not to see the sun
Run, run, run

Moon is lying still
Witnessing the wild breeze
Let's run
Run with me
Run with me

Rich are the rooms and the comforts there
And you won't know a thing till you get inside
Dead president's corpse in the driver's car
C'mon along, we're not going very far

The minister's daughter's in love with the snake
Wake up, girl! We're almost home
Sun, sun, sun
Soon, soon, soon
I will get you

Let the serpent sing

The rivers and highways
Forests and falls
We came down from
We came down from
And I can tell you
I can tell you
Listening for a fistful of silence

I can do anything
I made the blue cars go away
For seven years I dwelt
Playing strange games

To the land of the fair, and the strong, and the wise
Brothers and sisters of the pale forest
Who among you will run with the hunt?
Now Night arrives with her purple legion
Tomorrow we enter the town of my birth
