see, I could talk for hours
and I'd never say a thing
waiting endlessly for no one
in this knocked-out fantasy
but when visions on the ceiling
threw my thoughts in disarray
I left desert-bound
and feeling changed

the scene was like a postcard
as we moved across the land
standing dark against the canyon
shadows bent across the sand
home was like a cut-out
in some re-enactment play
and my memories
were painted strange

well, he says he is no prophet
but he speaks with quiet ease
and his telegenic manner
makes you wanna wait and see
oh, everything was painless
like we knew it had to be

as with fission, as with cattle
strike the shepherd and they'll scatter
knock the planets out of line
a parting sacrifice
far past the burning farmhouse
the telegenetic sheep
floorboards splintering in movements
like a sawdust symphony
