"Changed only for a sight of sound, the space agreed
Between the Picture of time, behind the face of need"
"If the sun refused to shine
I don't mind, I don't mind
If the mountains fell into the sea
Let it be, it ain't me"
"Tiny purple fishes run laughing through your fingers
And you want to take her with you to the heartland of the Winter"
"Dead president's corpse in the driver's car
The engine runs on glue and tar"
