The vagabond church bell is hiding all the baying of the hounds in the vans
Raw electricity toils in the sewers as Mary Magdalene drinks from Stalin's hands
Now the violent symphonium is packing all the instruments of polygonic strings
Crying hymns of Artaud in the asylum and mismatching every note that he sings
Inside the evolutionary cycle Winston Churchill and Nostradamus deal cards
To Oedipus sitting in the corner who just turned his glass eye into shards
Pontius Pilate is hanging his latest robe out on the street for display
And the sidewalk prophet is convincing everyone to let the cards fall as they may
Through the sound mist, Terpsichore is calling, giving calling cards of silken reverie
To the pornographic animists in heat who thrive in apologetic misery
And the philosopher who's been poisoning the river with diluted strychnine
Proposes a toast with Milton and Paine, the delicate draft of his vine
