The tunnel to the big blue sea

The tunnel to the big blue sea
The captain of the sailing ship was Jesus
The stars flew about the sky thinking
Follow the mother home

The tunnel into the big ocean
Suns came to the surface like whales
Sleepwalkers balanced on celestial tightropes
You were taken home in a black van

You saw what you were not meant to
The bureaucracy said to you –
Your mother died giving birth to you
On the Peabody estate one spring morning

The tunnel into the big ocean
Is crumbling under a meteorite
Far away you see two knights jousting
Now the dead one walks along the highway
