The Velocity of Saul at the Time of His Conve.. - text

Loosen the wire, your time has expired
The only word left is “goodbye”
In my new dream the light's shining on me
Little needles of sodium unstitch the seams of the sky

Hold your head higher, the heavenly choir
Is settling in for the night
And where I had friends I am left with loose ends
Four hours of vision exchanged for four hours of fright

But enough of “the fight,” enough “you and I”
Enough of “prevail” or “walk in the light”
While the angels stand by I get high as a kite
I'm too tired to smile or know that I'm right. Am I right?

And all our best-laid plans, they crumbled in our hands
Our flags fell where they'd fanned
You held in your breath, long after projections of death
You sat in the waiting room gasping and rasped on dry land

But the audience is tired; “we've had enough fire
We're entering the age now of ice”
And I, feeling older, pull off to the shoulder
And wonder, with my head in my hands, should I call my wife

And say “enough 'you and I,' enough of 'the fight'
Enough of 'prevail' or 'walk in the light'?”
While the angels stood by I got high as a kit
Too tired to smile or know that I'm right

“Enough 'you and I,' enough of 'the fight'
Enough of 'prevail' or 'walk in the light'?”
When the spacecraft came down I was left on the ground
Will you keep me around, will you help me survive
After my time?
