Astronomy Lyrics

Clock strikes twelve and moondrops burst

Out at you from their hiding place

Like acid and oil on a madmans face

His reasons tend to fly away

Like lesser birds on the four winds

Like silver scrapes in May

And now the sands become a crust

Most of you have gone away

Come Susie dear lets take a walk

Just out there upon the beach

I know youll soon be married

And youll want to know where winds come from

Well its never said at all

On the map that Carrie reads

Behind the clock back there you know

At the Four Winds Bar

 

Hey Hey Hey Hey

Four winds at the Four Winds Bar

Two doors locked and windows barred

One door to let to take you in

The other one just mirrors it

Hey Hey Hey Hey

Hellish glare and inference

The other ones a duplicate

The Queenly flux eternal light

Or the light that never warms

Yes the light that never never warms

Yes the light that never

Never warms

Never warms

Never warms

The clock strikes twelve and moondrops burst

Out at you from their hiding place

Miss Carrie nurse and Susie dear

Would find themselves at Four Winds Bar

Its the nexus of the crisis

And the origin of storms

Just the place to hopelessly

Encounter time and then came me

Hey Hey Hey Hey

Call me Desdinova

Eternal light

These gravely digs of mine

Will surely prove a sight

And don't forget my dog

Fixed and consequent
