lyrics

She’s behind the counter for just one more hour
Puts on the best smile she can
For the insane and sages in temples and cages
Who all want to hold her hand
for a piece of sky she’s had her eye
on a castle made of sand
she don’t need a reason just one more season
and she’s off to join a rock in roll band
Kathleen Kathleen don’t forget who you’re meant to be
You were meant to be my lover some day on a movie screen

Can’t say she didn’t warn ya She’s gone to California
Where puppets cut their strings
they lay around for hours smoking flowers
And preach about many things
The hustler comes with a highway tongue
To turn trees into wedding rings
upon a saddle in Seattle where the needle stings

If you have to wonder they invented the thunder
To beat like a drum in your mind
Pain comes as a porter throws you a quarter
And tells you get back in line
A face in the crowd shouts out loud
Can someone please tell me the time
Count your sheep and go back to sleep
We’re trying to turn water to wine

The flag dreams still flies it seems
But who knows where or when
Watch the train leave the station and another generation
Comes up behind you again
Some wander the isle for winning style
While others went to the wheel
They hear it creak even in their sleep
And forget how to feel
