I felt the rays of God shine in my hands
Burn all the plans
I’m going to grip the sun
Learn how to use it

Gimme some light
The eyes are all in bloom
With a beautiful madness and a dangerous sadness
Nightfall came too soon
It crept through my window and commanded my soul
In blankets made of stars
We’ve gone too far
I was a leper in armor
He said
Gimme some light
Stars for gutters and winter leaves
Indian lovers taken from the valley
Black Hill thunder and the Ghost Dance queen
They discovered nothing
Return to me
