Telescope

Telescope
( © Music and Lyrics Andy Hill)

A billion disconnected stars
A billion roaring flames
Egoís pointless little wars
You can almost give them names
I know its there inside me
To let a better spirit guide me
Back to that world we used to know

But when I finally caught your eye
You were looking through a telescope
At a galaxy that used to be
A zillion years ago

Rumorís ugly repetitions
Over time and distance
And willing apparitions
Of mutual resistance
Thatís how a ghost becomes a tyrant
Though weíre both so defiant
Of that very ghost we cannot overthrow

But when I finally caught your eye
You were looking through a telescope
At a galaxy that used to be
A zillion years ago

I thought Iíd never want to see your face again
From a reliable but undisclosed third partyís pen
Comes word that cross you bear is heavy as itís ever been
But outside the asylum my old best friend

Itís a blizzard in December
A frozen wasteland of regret
Where what is useless to remember
Is crucial to forget
And I would just let it all roll on by
Accept a why for a why
Besides Iím thirsty and whatíll we do anyway
With all this snow?
