Clock strikes twelve and moondrops burst
Out at you from their hiding place
Like acid and oil on a madman's face
His reason tends to fly away
Like lesser birds on the four winds
Like silver scrapes in May
And now the sand's 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 the 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 locked and windows barred
One door to let to take you in
The other one just mirrors it


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

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

Just the place to hopelessly
And the origin of storms
Encounter time and then came me
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

Astronomy...a star
