    Lyrics

    Dull twilight spits hesitant sulfur rain
    Sky been down around our ears for weeks
    Only once -- gap-glimpsed moon over that anal-retentive border wall
    As we laughed through some midnight checkpoint under yellow urban cloud
    Weeks of frantic motion -- petrol veins of
    Europe pumping
    Through scratchy acid-bitten transparent winter trees
    Through brownish haze that makes a ghost of the horizon
    I'm rushing after some ever-receding destination
    Berlin tonight
    Table-dancing in black tights
    Waving a silver crutch in the blue lights
    Shape changing over glass
    On the front line of the last gasp
    Green shoots of winter wheat and patches of snow
    Russian walks dog in Saxon field
    From the top of a solitary tree like the one on the flag of Lebanon
    Unblinking eye of hawk follows traffic on the autobahn
    Tank convoy winds down smokestack valley
    Pound chemical pennants wave against the sky
    Turret gunner laughs when I throw up my hands
    I'm all glasses and grin to him under my "commie" fur hat
    Berlin tonight Table-dancing in black tights
    Waving a silver crutch in the blue lights
    Shape changing over glass On the front line of the last gasp
