Immaculate Height

    Johnny get a hold of your life
    Wherever I go your face is in front of me
    But you won't believe it.

    Holding up the end of the line
    There never was a crack in the ice
    You won't believe in it.

    You are a diamond set
    On an Immaculate height, set.

    Bury your end of the wire.
    Lying awake in the hours and the emptiness
    Want me to run from the days we are living in?
    You'll only get a look at your life when you're leaving it.

    And then the silence says
    When you wrestle your plight
    When you lie on your back with your eyes on the firmament

    Your burning mouth, your blazing eyes, c'mon.
    If you believe in it.
    It's a respectable life.
    The police on the beach will find nothing is innocent.

    Johnny get a hold of your life.
    Stop on the edge till the animus drains away.
    Or follow the loneliest road
    Run in the dark til the light comes screaming in

    Through the silence says
    You are alone on the ice
    And you stand on the banks to find nothing is happening.

      La signora è in lacrime
      si ferma ad ascoltare
      attraversa si blocca metà della strada
      colpo di vento la fa continuare.
      La signora quando tace sembra una volpe
      va al cinema da sola ma ha paura ad entrare
