Light floats down day river on uh red raft o' blood
Night blocks out d' heaven like uh big black shiny bug

It's hard soft shell shinin' white in one spot well
It's hard place dat I'm livin' but I'm doin' well, well
The white ice horse melted like uh spot uh silver well
It's mane went last then disappeared the tail

My life ran thru my veins whistlin' hollow well
I froze in solid motion well, well
I heard the ocean swarmin' body well, well
I heard the beetle clickin' well

I sensed the thickest silence scream
Then I begin t' dream my mind cracked like custard
Ran red until it sealed turn t' wooden 'n rolled like uh wheel well, well
Thick black felt birds uh flyin' with capes of solid chrome

With feathers of solid chrome 'n beaks of solid bone
'n bleach the air around them white 'n cold well, well
Till it showed in pain the hollow cane clicked like ever after
Its shadow vanished shinin' silence well, well
