Sugar cube drop into a yellow cup
What makes the world just waking up
Revolve?

Who knows where on earth it's going to stop?
I can't hear you 'cause we're breaking up

And the stones in the track make work for the mechanic
And the birds all fly from the branches in a panic
And a backfire echoes down the hillside
As the last headline report dies

Ice is melting at the distant Pole
The gin and tonic glasses overflow
Dissolve
Dissolve

The precious little else that I could say
Your stupid tears of laughter washed away
Dissolve
Dissolve

While the poisonous light pours from the picture palace
And it flickers on, tries so hard to be scandalous
A child keeps beating on a toy drum
And the tablets dropped on your tongue

(Dissolve) So salute me in moving frame
(Dissolve) I might not be there when you look again
(Dissolve) The mourning border card behind the clock
(Dissolve) The hour that he passed, unwound and stopped
