DThere is a man holding a megaphone, so he Amust have been the voice of God. The bystandD7ers claimed they saw angels flying uGp and down the block. Well, they must have Gmbeen attached to wires.

Ddon't know when but it will Gcome and then we will finally know theGm way out of here. GmAnd I will throw away this wrinkled map and my chart of stars and compass, cracked. And I'll climb out that tree all wet with sap to avoid the hungry beasts below. I'll cut out my love's tongue and sing of a graveyard gray and a garden green and then we won't have to worry no more. No we won't ever worry again abouthow this song or story ends about how this song and story will end.
