How about a weekend job? Let’s have the internet pay the bills! How about a hole in these walls?- no I’d rather not let that spill. All the way to Ogallala! All the way to Solomon Island waters! They’ve all been hearing something-
They’ve all been humming something -
And when lights go down I hear a song that I’ve never heard. Only one old tone, I cant sing along, there’s no words. Only one old man would listen to my fears. Only one dying man would lend me his ear. And he said:
“Kid are you kidding me? Are you kidding me? Are you kidding me, I’ve heard that bell for years!”
How about a contract? A dotted line across a child’s throat. I’ve been having horrible dreams! I’ve been seeing horrible versions of me! Erotic elevator! What floor you gonna let me on? Apocalyptic instigator! Are you trying to turn me off?
“Can you hear it? Can you hear getting louder? I can hear it, and it’s getting clearer, I can hear it and it’s getting nearer, I can hear it and it’s almost here!”
