And when I woke the leaves were orange
And the green grass had died.
The branches wound up
The jack-in-the-box sun or the moon or whatever you see anytime.

Anyway, her head fell with the leaves-
Unfastened, like the clapper of a bell.
Skyline met with beds to burrow under the hills- around or over or however it was any way, anywhere, any time, any place that you choose.

Open the door and let it fly out the window, into the stream any way, anywhere that you choose.

She laughs in a way that sends the lemmings from the cliff.
There's murder in her smile but no one seems to mind.

But now's the time
To hide all your children in the ribcage of a dead dog, Or whatever you choose to do.
Anything, any time that you choose.

Open the door and let it fly out the window, into the stream
Any way, anywhere, any thought, any song, Anything any time that you choose.
