ALEXANDER’S DARK BAND

Alexander’s dark band can’t come out at night.

Alexander’s dark band lives alone in the light.

Alexander’s dark band bows and frowns brow to brow.

Alexander’s dark band is here for us now.

 

Rain clouds put out the red carpet treatment for you.

Always moving somewhere, always just passing through.

The visitor’s advantage, every sky becomes new.

And people stand there pointing at your view...

 

I can’t keep my eyes on the road.

Sound the trumpets, please come closer, water explodes.

Alexander plays in the storm, naked as the day he was born.

 

Alexander’s dark band, weighed down by it’s own gold.

Alexander’s dark band is good luck I’ve been told.

Alexander’s dark band stretches miles end to end.

Alexander’s dark band turns to black where it bends.

 

Double bowed, swift as lightning, hanging around.

Drawing a sweet infants breath to find what I’ve found.

Dying fast at 42 degrees as you are.

You disappear, I get back in my car.

 

I can’t keep my eyes on the road.

Sound the trumpets, please come closer, water explodes.

Alexander plays in the storm, naked as the day he was born.
