Silence in the rain On your window pane Silence in the rain Here it comes again From another plane Here it comes again CHORUS Can you hear the sound Flowing all around Can you hear the sound Heartsease in a gale On a windy day Heartsease in a gale Thoughts will blow away No more disarray Thoughts will blow away CHORUS Silence in the rain On your window pane Silence in the rain CHORUS

Have you got a minute of your limited lifetime to spare After all the minute you got is only yours to share Don’t you think it’s time to realize the time is now And forever You don’t have to run, you don’t need to be another you What’s done is done, let your mind fade out of view Don’t you think it’s time to realize the time is now And forever There’s no expectation No living in the past What’s the point of chasing Something that won’t last
4.
Over the rolling hills and far away You can find a new place to stay Beneath a waning moon you’ll walk alone Take the path by the big blue stone CHORUS Over the rolling hills It’s a confined free will Over the rolling hills you’ll see the truth No more aging, there’s only youth The sky from red to black will change its light Let us hope there are stars tonight CHORUS Over the rolling hills, you can be free No more nightmares or misery The endless stairs of change you must descend No one ever knows how it ends CHORUS Over the rolling hills you may not go How it would be you may not know

Blue halos Miles above the ground Blue halos You’re blotting out the sun The world will come undone When your rays start searing Blue halos Frequenting the mire Blue halos Through a fog of haze In an endless maze I hear a siren singing Blue halos Falling from the sky Blue halos Swooping down below I’m old enough to know But numb enough to stay I just can’t turn away

Reversed evolution Unmaking the mind A joint retribution All fates intertwined Craptacular reasons For trusting it all Abstaining from treason By taking the fall CHORUS I am, you are, Savage Minds The April fool leads the blind Into a faux résolution A speech demagogic From capital square Twisting the logic Believers beware (Beginners beware?) Light-hearted capers Performed by some bloke The audience's laughing But where is the joke CHORUS Newborn directions Grow underground A time for expression A time for new sounds CHORUS
7.
Like a Red Corsair With her windy hair She cruises ‘round the world without a care She’s the next of kin She’s the evil twin And we’ve lost the time we thought that we could win CHORUS Everyone has panic in their eyes Though she comes as no surprise It’s a call to account But there’s no amount That can bring her ghastly apparition down It’s the bitter end And a heaven sent As we her coming crawling around the bend CHORUS
8.
CHORUS Running out of mind, don’t you know that I’m Running out of mind, does it happen to you Running out of mind, don’t you know that I’m Running out of mind When nothing is right I just think we might So let me tell you something that you ought to know It’s time to drain the tap of the insanity flow Lest we all run out of mind If he was alive today I wonder what would Teddy say About the new commercial way If it bleeds It surely leads CHORUS Now the truth is up for sale The world is waiting to exhale What will follow in its trail The fault ain’t real It’s a delusive deal
9.
Is there anybody on the phone I want to be left alone Nobody ever comes my way And that’s ordained by common fate Got a house with a darkened steeple There's a rumor 'bout me eating people But that's how I engineered it In communion with my own spirit CHORUS Been ostracized But it's nice to be a self-dependent social outcast Been a troglodyte a long long time Knowing no one is not a crime When they sent me off to Coventry It was actually good for me CHORUS Is there anybody on the phone I want to be left alone But now this story of bittersweet Seems to be stuck on repeat
10.
Came to the city Of the many logs The sky was pretty Then came the fog Underneath the gilding Was a shade of gloom The towering buildings Were turning into seals of doom But in the country Of the tulip trees And the emerald leaves There's a place for me And I want to be In the country Staring up to the old moon On a dragon’s head There’s no king’s peace For the dancing dead Plagued by the vermin They crawl to light Almost wish they’d catch me And catapult me out To the country Of the tulip trees And the emerald leaves In the open air Won't you take me there To the country But if I can’t be there in summer time Friend of mine Will you wait Please would you wait Wait for me In the country Of the tulip trees And the emerald leaves In the open air Won't you take me there To the country
