Motionless mechanical silence grabs hold

A screaming meadow ripe to explode

But all that comes out

Are the jackrabbits and plainsmen

With beaded brow and soon let down

Drinking to another goodbye

The wireless phone shakes the floor

A voice so shrill it weeps

For armies aching to return

Molded in perfected delight

Crowds beg for more tonight



Shouting crawls across the room

You, frozen by her style

Legs shake floorboards

To the beat of your heart

now here comes Denise down the aisle


Visions of vagabonds reigning supreme

Float about an outlaws dream

Waking up the very next day

To find his car to be taken away

Left now, all alone

In a world all his own
