I woke before the clock had struck the hour of four
I was tired but my mind left sleep standing in her door
I’m standing here staring at blood drops on the snow
There’s something in the air everywhere I go

I’m going to raise up in the dawning before the calling of the crows
Leave this town’s wild money, down the street a steel wind blows
I’m still not convicted for the kind of seeds I sow
There’s something in the air everywhere I go

I have a psychic milk cow, I’ve got a clairvoyant mule
I heard the crown prince praying in the monastery vestibule
I’m in this cemetery of dreams, walking down it row by row
There’s something in the air everywhere I go

They’re playing dominos on the field amid the bodies and the blood
They say Noah’s down the road building a boat to ride the flood
It takes imagination to know which dice to throw
There’s something in the air everywhere I go (repeat)
