Sonic Youth – Number One lyrics

Here it comes again out of the rain
Seems to have a new kind of same
Been playin' on a simple ride
Sign comes alive and speaks the mind
It turns to me and it turns to gold
It turns to see a fast lane slow
It's been away too long
It's been away I'm gone
East coast and on
To the west star
Lookin' out I thought I saw it blink
Coming on to me like a silver eye
Pick it up and tune it on in
Head on out to a western starland
It's been a man and gone
Now it's singing a song
Like a western star
It's going my way
Looking out I'm back in time to stay
Into the eastern sign away
It comes alive thru, through and clearer
A ghost arrives to, to your mirror
You've been away too long
It's been way too long
Eastern star is on
A disappearer
(Disappearer demo)
