There was grown man dying from fright
So surprised by the things hed say
With a giant fantasy life
Running round on feet of clay

Naked except for a perpetual debt
That couldnt be stripped away
An unrightable wrong that moved him
Along closer to division day

Spent a long time living with that
Never could give it a name
And when you dont know what youre
Looking at it makes it much harder to take

Mostly theyd meet when he was asleep
And have some sick exchange
That stuck him as wrong and moved him
Along closer to division day

I cant make an exception for
A bad connection that only goes one way
Sell out for a song where I dont belong
With you on division day

The moon stood up on the ridge
Looking down where the water shines
And a man looking over the bridge
Like he done so many times

Thinking about how to stay out
Out of troubles way
And flying to fall away from you all
Its over division day, beautiful division day

Thinking about how to stay out
Out of troubles way
Flying to fall away from you all
Its over division day, beautiful division day

SMITH, STEVEN P.
