Songs Title:nathan la franeer


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
