lyrics

The evenings out against the sky
Half deserted streets where you and I
Explore the aching corners of our minds
Like patients on a table etherised
The yellow smoke that falls from window panes
Lingers on the pools that stand on drains
There’s time to murder and create
To lift and drop a question from your plate
I've known the evenings, mornings, afternoons
I've measured out my life with coffee spoons
And all that's left is you
I hear the dying voices dying fall
Beneath the music heard beyond the hall
I've know the eyes already known them all
When I am pinned and wriggling on the wall
But how should I begin to change my ways
To spit out all the butt ends of my days
When my weak spirit quickens to rebel
I've known my heart already known it well
