I hired a coach to take me from confusion to the plane

 

And though we shared a common space I know Ill never meet again

 

The driver with his eyebrows furrowed in the rear-view mirror

I read his name and it was plainly written nathan la franeer

 

I asked him would he hurry

But we crawled the canyons slowly

 

Thru the buyers and the sellers

Thru the burglar bells and the wishing wells

 

With gangs and girly shows

 

The ghostly garden grows

 

The cars and buses bustled thru the bedlam of the day

I looked thru window-glass at streets and nathan grumbled at the grey

 

I saw an aging cripple selling superman balloons

 

The city grated thru chrome-plate

 

The clock struck slowly half-past-noon

 

Thru the tunnel tiled and turning

Into daylight once again I am escaping

 

Once again goodbye

 

To symphonies and dirty trees

 

With parks and plastic clothes

 

The ghostly garden grows

 

He asked me for a dollar more

He cursed me to my face

He hated everyone who paid to ride

And share his common space

 

I picked my bags up from the curb

And stumbled to the door

Another man reached out his hand

Another hand reached out for more

 

And I filled it full of silver

And I left the fingers counting

 

And the sky goes on forever

 

Without meter maids and peace parades

 

You feed it all your woes

 

The ghostly garden grows
