GOODNIGHT

hey you standing there
won't you come talk with me
why do you look so scared
like a cat stuck in a tree
drink from your cup while it runneth over
feel the blood clear from your eyes
say goodnight to the soul controller
cause we've just crossed the bridge of sighs
but how long will it take
before we finally see
we're just birds in an open cage
when will we be free

all ye lost in hell be found
cause heaven is flying down
to rescue all those who drown
with the angels of solid ground
and their fire that burns by night
be a cloud that shelters by day
you can kiss the devil goodnight
say goodbye and be on your way

have you got a song to sing
please sing it loud for me
and i'll give you this golden ring
to take away your misery
it says "this as well will pass
both the sorrow and the love filled chords"
its not the fingers to be looking at
but the moon they're pointing toward
cause words be like ball bearings
to loosen up the soul and its friction
listen what silence wants hearing
tween reality and fiction

all ye lost in hell be found
cause heaven is flying down
to rescue all those who drown
with the angels of solid ground
and their fire that burns by night
be a cloud that shelters by day
you can kiss the devil goodnight
say goodbye and be on your way

when your tears fall to the garden
they fall like a gentle rain
they fall like seeds to eden
to plant the tree of life again
and you're more than welcome back
just walk through the spinning swords
just walk out of your hermit shack
just walk through the palace doors
and don't doubt for a minute
and don't doubt till you're home
and don't doubt till you're finished
till there's no doubt in your bones...

all ye lost in hell be found
cause heaven is flying down
to rescue all those who drown
with the angels of solid ground
and their fire that burns by night
be a cloud that shelters by day
you can kiss the devil goodnight
say goodbye and be on your way
