Blue Oyster Cult – Astronomy lyrics

Clock strikes twelve and moon drops burst
Out at you from their hiding place
Like acid and oil in a madman's face
His reason tends to fly away
Like lesser birds on the four winds
Like silver scrims in May
And now the sands become a crust
Most of you have gone away

Come Susie dear, let's take a walk
Just out there upon the beach

I know you'll soon be married
And you'll want to know where winds come from
Well it's never said at all
On that map that Carrie reads
Behind the clock back there you know
At the Four Winds Bar

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Four winds at the Four Winds Bar
Two doors bought and windows barred
One door to left to take you in
The other one just mirrors it

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Hellish glare and inference
The other one's a duplicate
The Queenly flux, eternal light
Or the light that never warms
Yes, the light that never, never warms
Or the light that never
Never warms
Never warms
Never warms

The clock strikes twelve and moondrops burst
Out at you from their hiding place
Miss Carrie nurse and Susie dear
Would find themselves at the Four Winds Bar

It's the nexus of the crisis
And the origin of storms
Just the place to hopelessly
Encounter time and then came me

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Call me Desdinova
Eternal light
These gravely digs of mine
Will surely prove a sight
And don't forget my dog
Fixed and consequent

A star

A star
A star
A star

    Meaning!?! Meaning!?! I think we all know what this song means, don't act coy with me! Are you being coy with me!?! The Gold! It's in the. Arrrhhh. (slump).. Actually it's probably just another Bouchard Bros. Version of a love song and their search for the perfect love that will never be. And in the end the submission to the Forces of Time and what is the Present and the knowledge that even the most self-centered and fleeting of Love is still part of a bigger more timeless Love that extends past the physical senses. Or maybe Joe's just nuts. Whadda I kno?
