By the time the luminous descent of the bright star unfolds
And tablets of strangelove are shattered and bruised
By the time the oleander is falling from bloom
And tears of the crocodile water the sun

By the time you make up your mind
I ever you do
I hear the drums of heaven too
By the time you make up your mind
I ever you do
I hear the drums of heaven too

By the time paradise alley is littered with rust
And the arc of dayglo is curtained in gloom,
By the time kidney bone cities are bcrumbling to dust
And the empires and all of the mirates burn

Ice on the mountain
Wind and the dust storm
Sails in the desert
It's old and exploding
Seers and the prophets
Drums of heaven
