Awake, awake.
Cause morning’s killed the night,
Thrown stones to put the stars to flight.
Hey look!
A cowboy in the east has caught…

A politician’s purse in a noose of light.

Dreaming…
Dreaming as dawn’s left hand was in the sky,
I heard a voice inside the bar cry,
He said,
“Wake up and fill your cup!”
Why?
“Because life’s liquor, it runs dry.”

“It’s almost time!”
And as the cock crew, those who stood before
“Last call!”
The bar yelled, “Open the door!”
You know,
“We don’t have long to stay,”
You know,
“We might not return no more.”
