Two Worlds

"Everybody's workin' for the weekend... Everybody's goin' off the deep end." Loverboy

The urgency of afternoon
Sabotage me of my time
Hurry 'fore the lights go down
My fleeting peace of mind

Everyone against the bar
Grackles on thin power lines
Sip it up but do not drown
The little light inside

You're dreaming of an ancient place
You've visited before
Lucid winds whip across
The windows and the doors

The lonely wolf howls a tune
Slows the beating of your heart
Frozen here between two worlds
A child of the dark
