Lions in the street and roaming
Dogs in heat, rabid, foaming
A beast cagedin the heart of a city
The body of his mother
Rotting in the summer ground.
He fled the town.

He went down and crossed the border
Left the chaos and disorder
Back there over his shoulder.

One morning he awoke in a green hotel
Whith a strange creature groaning beside him.
Sweat oozed from its shiny skin.

Is everybody in?
The ceremony is about to begin.

Wake up!
You can't remember where it was.
Had this dream stopped?

The snake was pale gold
Glazed & shrunken
We were afraid to touch it.
The sheets were hot dead prisons
& she was beside me.
Old she is not... young
Her dark red hair
The white soft skin.
Now, run to the mirror in the bathroom
Look!

She is coming in here,
I can't live thru each slow century of her moving.
I let my cheek slide down
The cool smooth tile
Fell the good cold stinging blood
The smooth hissing snakes of rain...

Once I had a little game
I like to crawl back into my brain
I think you know the game I mean
I mean the game called 'go insane'

Now you should try this little game
Just close your eyes, forget your name
Forget the world, forget the people
And we'll erect a different steeple.

The little game is fun to do.
Just close your eyes, no way to lose.
And I'm right there, I'm going too.
Release control, we're breaking through.

Way back deep into the brain
Way back past around my pain
Back where there's any rain.
And the rain falls gently on the town
And on the heads of all of us.
And in the labyrinth of streams
Beneath, the quiet unearthy presence of
Nervous hill dwellers in the gentle hills around,
Reptiles abounding
Fossils, caves, cool air heights.

Each house repeats a mold
Window rolled
Beast car locked in against morning.
All now sleeping
Rugs silent, mirrors vacant,
Dust blind under the beds of lawful couples.
Wound in sheet.
And daughters, smug
With semen eyes in their nipples.

Wait!
There's been a slaughter here.

(Don't stop to speak or look around
Your gloves & fan are on the ground
We're getting out of town
We're going on the run
And you're the one I want to come)

Not to touch the earth
Not to see the sun,
Nothing left to do but
Run, run, run,
Let's run

House upon the hill
Moon is lying still
Shadows of the trees
Witnessing the wild breeze
Come on, baby, run with me
Let's run.
Run with me
Run with me
Run with me
Let's run.

The mansion is warm at the top of the hill,
Rich are the rooms and the comforts there
Red are the arms of luxuriant chairs,
And you don't know a thing till you get inside.

Dead President's corpse in the driver's car
The engine runs on glue and tar
Come on along, we're not goin' very far
To the East to meet the Czar.

Some outlaws live by the side of a lake,
The minister's daughter's in love with the snake,
Who lives in a well by the side of the road
Wake up, girl, we're almost home!

Sun, sun, sun
Burn, burn, burn
Moon, moon, moon,
I will get you
Soon!
Soon!
Soon!
I am the Lizard King
I can do anything.

We came down
The rivers & highways
We came down from
Forests & falls
We came down from
Carson & Springfield
We came down from
Phoenix enthralled
& I can tell you
The names of the Kingdom
I can tell you
The things that you know
Listening for a fistful of silence
Climbing valleys into the shade.

For seven years I dwelt
In the loose palace of exile,
Playing strange games
With the girls of the island.
Now I have come again
To the land of the fair, & the strong, & the wise.
Brothers & sisters of the pale forest
O children of Night
Who among you will run with the hunt?
Now Night arrives with her purple legion.
Retire now to your tents & to your dreams.
Tomorrow we enter the town of my birth.
I want to be ready.
