Something warm and soft just passed through here
It took the precious things that I hold dearer
It rifles through the cling and disappears
The creeping darkness makes the small hours clearer

Like a cancer scare
In a dentist chair
Sucking in the air
Wire across the stair
Kicking down the door
At your local store
When your world of bore
Forces through the floor
Unexpected news
Wearing high-heeled shoes
Blowing out the fuse
Paying all your dues
Tempering lullaby
Like a fractured tie
It's a worthless lie
To the public eye

I don't take waves and strays back home with me
My bleeding heart does not extend to charity

Yes I'd have to say I like my premise, see
Did you know you're on closed-circuit TV?
To smile at me

And a dream you had
Of your mom and dad
On a beach somewhere
And the boys aren't there
With the cancer threat
In a cigarette
Tempering lullaby
Find a place to hide

And from the yellow windows of the last train
A specter from the next life breathes his bargain of pain
I look with you into the speeding black rain
Afraid to touch someone, afraid to ask her for a name

And in the morning when I find I've lost you
I throw a window open wide and step through
