In the sun I
Left my clothes to dry
And while I lied there naked
I fell into this trance

The stones along the ground
Cut into my feet
And the smokestacks, coughing
They bowed to me

What do you do
When the telephone rings?
When you’re all cluttered in
by things, things, things

Parading around
Without the uniforms
Of a busy world
Letting our instincts drive us
We could drive anywhere

We’re out of touch with our urges
A compass needle undecided
We have in us instruments more accurate
By which we should be guided

I followed and I emerged
On the other side
Of a cataclysmic night
The shades striped sunlight on the wall
And everything was alright

Immeasurable directions
To an unknown destination
