Clock strikes twelve and moondrops burstOut at you from their hiding placeLike acid and oil on a madman's faceHis reasons tend to fly awayLike lesser birds on the four windsLike silver scrapes in MayAnd now the sand's become a crustMost of you have gone away
Come Susie dear, let's take a walkJust out there upon the beachI know you'll soon be marriedAnd you'll want to know where winds come fromWell it's never said at allOn the map that Carrie readsBehind the clock back there you knowAt the Four Winds Bar
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
Four winds at the Four Winds BarTwo doors locked and windows barredOne door to let to take you inThe other one just mirrors it
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
Hellish glare and inferenceThe other one's a duplicateThe Queenly flux, eternal lightOr the light that never warmsYes the light that never, never warmsYes the light that never
Never warmsNever warmsNever warms
The clock strikes twelve and moondrops burstOut at you from their hiding placeMiss Carrie nurse and Susie dearWould find themselves at Four Winds Bar
It's the nexus of the crisisAnd the origin of stormsJust the place to hopelesslyEncounter time and then came me
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
Call me DesdinovaEternal lightThese gravely digs of mineWill surely prove a sightAnd don't forget my dogFixed and consequent
Astronomy - a star
Astronomy - a star
Astronomy - a star
Astronomy - a star
