Angelfish


Brother Fear

The buildings rise high
Up above the city where the sun
Is sailing through the red sky
And through my veins you run.

Brother fear's on the street
Flying high through the markets and the rain
Brother fear
you take my heart away
Brother fear's on the street.

And down the streamlined
Avenues that glitter far below
A green Bugatti ghost rides
Across the bright windows.

Brother fear's on the street...

The canyon streets wind
Deep around the city's nervous soul
Through passages of lost time
I feel your ebb and flow.

Brother fear's on the street...



Fighting In A Lighthouse


Through the curtains that blew apart
Drifted a strange old tune
And the sunlight with its dying rays
Floods the room with another day

The senile sea numbers each single
Slim silvered stone
The senile sea numbers each single
Slim silvered stone.

On the surface cool neon danced
Swam with a day old moon
And when I touched your fine boned shoulder
On the strand walking next to you

The senile sea numbers each single
Slim silvered stone.

Through the curtains that blew apart
Drifted a strange old tune
And the lighthouse with its slender beam
Crossed the room where the woman leaned.

The senile sea numbers each single
Slim silver stone
.



Paradiso


Night falls on Paradiso's dawn
And the halos glow around the town
Their soft delight
Beneath the bridges sigh
They take me in their arms
And hold me tight.

Light pours from a swinging door
And a trumpet comes sliding through the calm
And carefree night
Beneath the bridges sigh
Take me in your arms
And hold me tight.
Cold Paradiso night.
Take me in your arms
And hold me tight.
The broken up alleys dream
And from a hotel a woman screams.



6th Floor Elevator Blues


Don't book a room above the fifth floor
When you stay at the Hard-Luck Hotel
The ladders won't reach any higher
And if you fell.

It's like the barman always
That " winners always take the stairs
Because if there should be a fire
The elevator will take you there."

A pink moon rises over Oldtown
Along the street of no return
The cars lie naked and abandoned
And safe from harm.

You hang suspended from a wire
You crawl beneath the lizard's lair
But please believe what momma told you
"The elevator will take you there."

Don't book a room above the fifth floor
When you stay at the Hard-Luck Hotel
The ladders won't reach any higher

And if you fell...



Tremaine


Tremaine you settle like a bird
Watching you my life begins
Tremaine the steady currents curl
Clear blue and silver skinned.

Uncertain scenes come back to me...
Staring out from the wooden porch
Dusk falls
The west horizon burns
From the shallow corn.

Tremaine your silent figure soars
Crucifixed against the sun
Tremaine your twisted figure turns
Watching you upon the wind.

Uncertain scenes come back to me...
Staring down past the whitened walls
Dust roars
The cafe lights that blur
And the market hall.

Tremaine the silence seems to roar
From the pool as you descend
Untamed and magic was the world
Watching you my life begins.

Uncertain scenes come back to me...
Driving round in your battered car
Backyards
Where silhouettes would merge
Beneath the tragic stars.
Uncertain scenes come back to me.



Sea Change


Sea change
No one can change my life
But the days seemed endless
And the burning embers
Of their fire remain.
And there were times
When I dreamed of youth
And there were times
When I've seen nobody but you
Sea change.

Sea change
No morning came so bright
As the gold September
When I saw your slender
Figure cross the rye.
And there are times
I deny the truth
And there are times
When I see nobody but you
Sea change.



Roulette


Your hands black as the night will fall
Your serpent fingers wrap
Through blind corridors.
Your hands black.

Your hands black as the rain that falls
On unseen lakes that lap
Loose lined to the shore.
your hands black.

From the deep sleep I rise and walk with you
And the spring takes you there
High in the clear air
And the spring takes you there,
High in the scented air
And the spring takes you there.



The Lights of Phoenix


Sometimes when I feel lonely inside
The lights of Phoenix roll on down...
The stars above us roll on down.

Sometimes like a dream burning you rise
Into the desert's rolling sky.
The lights of Phoenix roll on down
Into the day.

You climb in the steep thunderous night
Your wings above us burning bright.
Sometimes when I feel lonely inside
The lights of Phoenix roll on down....
The stars above us roll on down
Into the day.


Missing


He takes a long cool slow drink from
The wrinkled surface river bronze
Sliding through his torrid plain
His Taurus rage.
