Joanna

The high apparitions
They're errantly due
The beauty in their ghastly view.
But we will broadcast the better
With hopes numbered few
And ebbing from the midst of you.

In the midnight of your soul
Bursting with vim
And vigorously dim
You petition the moon to shine on.

But you’re wrapped up in books
(Did you notice? Did you want to?)
You’re tied up into knots
(Did you notice? Did you want to?)
Oh, Joanna!

So if you shrug off these fetters,
If pulses have hung,
Cast away beliefs that spectres won.
For I will do them one better
Where spectres have gone.
So watch for my approach and case the dawn.

In the sunset’s flare I will find you.
If the dashers dares to claim you there
Well, I will fashion a map up to find you.

In the sunset's glare, I'll define you.
And if the devil dares to take you there
I will fashion a map up to find you.
I will follow it to the letter.

In the midnight of your soul,
Bursting with vim, and vigorously dim
You petition the moon to shine on.
"But you're wrapped up in books.
Did you notice, or want to?"
And I will manage to make you whole.
