I saw your girlfriend there. I saw her—there
She whispered tragic things. Tragic—words
Was hard to follow her mind’s own motion
Like arks of Joan swinging side to side
We did not agree on if heaven’s a good device
Her goddess ego in overdrive
You’re counting on it too much
You trashed our house on a hunch!
There you go

Take this gold ring from my fat finger
Weigh it as proof I’m a measured man not a singer

Look into my eyes. Look into my—eyes
You are not easily swayed, if “swayed” means “moved.”
Was hard to follow your mind’s own motion
One German class and you’re sanctified?
We will not agree on the point of an afterlife
You miss a step and you miss it twice
You’re counting on it too much
You trashed our house on a hunch!
Blame a ghost

I’m signing Chinese autographs for my neighbors
They said they went to the moon and back, found a savior
I sprinkled pieces of golden ring on their cradles
They said it’s sure proof that hidden men talk to strangers

Imagine an alien species of explorers from a galaxy some 70 million light years distant. Countless generations have lived and died on the journey to Earth. Whole histories, micro-civilizations come and gone. But at last they are here. Markarians are here. Only…somewhere along the way, rounding the Sombrero Galaxy, they forgot why they came. And how to get back.
