lyrics

At night,
running through the air,
through landscapes of our eyes;

there is something else
behind these walls and doors
leading into breakfast at night.

All I wanna do is
jump through the floor;
didn't you when you'd just woke up?

A party is starting at night,
and the lonely lounge club singers
become physically demented,

while the man behind the wall
is dying in a room of saturated blues
and cigarette smoke illuminated by
black and white camera flashes
from photographers in tuxedoes.

They said a hospital at night
inside a tall lifeless building
is fluorescent greens and pale walls;

somebody in a gown
loses all character inside of 'em
at the sight of a syringe,

but manages to remain calm
in front of doctors
waiting for the next parade of infants
to march in their doors.

All they're gonna do is
break the law;
didn't you when you'd just come into this world?

He died on the street that night,
fueled by the messages on the billboards
starring signs of the apocalypse

and silver screen dreams of a last chance
at his road to fame through the back entrance
of the theater where the rocket ship went off;

and the ashes of Hi8 video tapes of the crash
sent him back to bed,
waiting for the window to open up into the sky.

He was no more;
his soul sinking into the stained cement,
in the raindrops
in the mud
in the friends with mouths wide open,

and the bluest sky
from the oceans of all their entire lives,
at night.
