Hey, I found a whistle that hangs like a charm
And when my noose is tied
I could blow it and fall down into your arms
Fifteen centuries of dissolution and grief
To return a yellow trickster and a thief

Hey, I found a whistle that works every time
That's when the trail escapes to nowhere
And the flood erases the crime
Such conviction to paint all the walls with the blood
Of the young and the faithful and the good

Yeah, I found a whistle as thin as a sheet
To split the dumbness of a vision
Between asleep and a sleep
Tiny axes repeatedly raising the flag
All ignored, real emotion's such a drag

Hey, I've got a pistol that's aimed at your heart
And on dark nights when the moon is right
I could show you the head attached with a scarf
Aerophane sorceress, at home obeying the fates
When it's gone, has it gone all the way?

This time found a whistle
That works every time
Yeah, I found a whistle
That works, hangs like a charm

Yeah, found a whistle
That works every time
Yeah, I found a whistle
That works, closes my mind every time

A whistle
I've got it, I've got it this time
