This Empty Northern Hemisphere

"Smoke it flies from whisky mouths

Vagabonds walk this suitcase town

Summer left us beckoning

The cottonwoods were all worn out


Night comes fixing on the day

And the universe reigned again

While the wheels roll to find a flickering light


While you were sleeping I was the turning the dials

And I walled up your kingdom with radio wires

And the bells of the choir came in low and rumbling you should of heard them


Living here in this city on fire, well I’ve been fine

Just dancing drunk above the street

Me the ghost of caroline


And that was me, ya know, calling up above

From the steeples in the church yard


Watch the wheels roll to find another place home


While you were sleeping, you bet that I might

Walk this empty northern hemisphere wide

And the kingdom it came, well it all fell down

It all fell to dust

Watch it all fly down


While you were sleeping I was the turning the dials

...and I walked this empty northern hemisphere wide"
