lyrics

Monsters and magnets are falling to floors
Toward the metal receivers in waiting 

Constant distractions from nuns in the hall 

Near the pirates and thieves meditating 


As we look on 

As we look on 


Give me the Operator 

Careful now watch, you'll wake her



Mixing solutions in cauldrons of days 

While the witches eat wafers on sunday 

No longer related to which they pertain 

Thoughts unlinked, cut adrift in the ether 


As we hang on 

As we hang on 


Give me the Operator 

Careful now watch, you'll wake her 



Plastic rebellion in sevens and spades 

From a lark to a bore to a panic 

Furrows displayed on the foreheads of dames 

Who walk decked out and dazed in the evening 


As we hang on 

As we hang on 


Give me the Operator 

Careful now watch, you'll wake her 



Spastic companions embrace by the sea 

With their heads turned gently to morning
