As soon as he gives a name to whatever it is he finds so goddamn frightening,
he'll empty his crippling pen,
It is not so difficult then . . .
So he fell in with the studs
Too late now it seems the city's dry mud took his might underground, now no more surprises, no more clowning around
There goes a naked man dressed up like an ordinary citizen
Look at him go down with his business men, cattle
Let him go
Sometimes I now still call on him to dip me in the river but he won't heal me now, now that he is lost himself
Now he just drops in to pin me against the wall
Now he just drops in to see that I surely fall
When the sun hits the water with a cattle-call refrain
The doctor and his daughter look for somewhere else to stay
