lyrics

You know, bumblebees don't fly, they just drift on the wind.
And the pale mountains don't seem so far when you think to way back then.
When Miranda's Birds would head out North, then you'd know it was Autumn time.
Just before the dawn they'd go catch the wind, casting shadows across the pine.

While outside in the street, the machinery sounds.
Blue slaves of repetition sing.
Dull fire of the night, come wash my dream away.

So then Harry got married, and we danced all night, with all that poison in our blood.
Someday he'll live in a big old house with three daughters and a son.
But I'm not really sure that's the life for me, out where the heart don't sing.
I'm the kind that needs to feel it all at once, sorrow's how I'm gettin' free.

While outside in the street, the machinery sounds.
Blue slaves of repetition sing.
Dull fire of the night, come wash my dream away.

But then we lost Jenny down by the water, it was near the shoreline hotel.
And we looked out there in the darkness, but all we found was ourselves.
And she came back in the morning, though she wasn't quite the
same.
But I guess that's the way things often go. You know people, they gotta change.

While outside in the street, the machinery sounds.
Blue slaves of recognition sing.
Dull fire of the night, won't you wash my dream away?
