Stars become ghosts
Ghosts of lost lions
Lonesome, listening to champagne
Sitting in beat up Datsun trucks
Beside gravel roads
Whispering your name

Time is windy
The lions told me one day
When I was afraid
The breeze it blows cold down your throat
Into your heart
Brought like a blade

Forged in the fires
Of galaxies crumbling
Humbly stumbling through cold space
In an engine roar that wind is formed
It does not wonder why
It blows away

Like brown paper bags
Pushed through parking lots
Lilting to wilt in storm and rain
Tragedy's clues to sing the blues
The tears of centuries
On harps tied with chains

To the mast
Of conscience and good cheer
Steering certain to a great whirlpool
But hold your head up
And lift your last cup
To the cold lips of the uncool
And drink
And smile
And drive that Datsun home
