goodbye to night…

thunder…
keeping me awake…
flashes of lightning in a darkened sky…
soon rain will come…soon…

hookers run for cover under awnings…
desperate johns drive-by wanting…
old beat-to-shit vans waddle down the street…
dealers on cellphones dialing for dollars…

boarded houses condemned…
crack parlors policed…
no longer a place for a junkie to call home…
flies ’round dumpsters…

thunder…
keeping me awake…
flashes of lightning in a darkened sky…
soon rain will come…soon…

bars release hounds into this night…
stumbling home…
weaving between lines…
for tomorrow sorrow begins…

and old dogs bark…
chained pitbulls…
a bum collecting cans…
this hour…this hour…

thunder…
keeping me awake…
flashes of lightning in a darkened sky…
soon rain will come…soon…

i watch…
from above…
i watch…
my sins cast long ago…

kids on corners practicing metaphysics…
flying from street-lamp to street-lamp…
cloud to cloud…
and the music goes boom…boom…boom…

thunder…
keeping me awake…
flashes of lightning in a darkened sky…
soon rain will come…soon…

goodbye to night…
