Sky Divers

On a fast and speeding train
They're clutched, arm in arm, hand to hand
There's a karate chop, an aeroplane spin
And as he spun the Batman around faster and faster
He acted as a helicopter blade
And soon, the boxcar was sailing twenty miles above the surface of the earth
What will our heroes do now?
And then, like an umbrella, the whole tableau spun radial and crackled
And plummeted like an arrow to the earth
There it lay broken in a New York City trash can
Looking for all the world like an umbrella that has seen too much and forgotten nothing

Suspended the world's
Our mass we'll lose in the sea's bouyancy
Come leap off our lilies with me

Sky daughters dive through the sky
Sky daughters dive through the sky, maybe die
Would you dive off the sky dive for me?

Now falling was endlessly done
The child would have never have only begun
On wings like the rays of the sun

I was sitting, looking out the window just the other day
I said, "what's that infernal racket out there?" I said
But then I realized that it was just the garbage man
One of them turned at the window, he's rattling the pots and pans at me
And I leered my head out the window, I said "hey garbage man, ha ha ha, hey garbage man, garbage man!"
I said, "wash your brain and then you'll be brainwashed!"
So he said...

But the most fun I've had in a long while is
To watch the wish of the second-hand watch
Of the second-hand watch
The wish of the second-hand watch
To watch the wish of the second-hand watch
Of the second-hand watch
The wish of the second-hand watch
Of the second-hand watch
The wish of the second-hand watch
Watching the wishing of the second-hand watching
Of the wishing, the wishing of the watching
Of the second-hand watch
The wish of the second-hand watch
The second hand was watching the wish
The second-hand watch...
