Something follows you back from the other side
from the locked up basement at the house of blue light

Close your eyes and you’ll fall right through the floor
there are things in this world you can feel
all your life but you’re taught to ignore

all the strength that waits at your side
on the wings that heave
and they sigh
painted in the corner of your eye

where once there were halls and gardens
where captains’ wives would bathe
and tattoo the names of sailors lost to the waves

but nobody lives there anymore
in the castle
in the clouds
nobody lives there anymore
in the castle
in the clouds
they’ll leave you pounding
on the door.

to pry open the heart that’s rusted shut
mend the lines of talk
where the’ve all been cut

makes a man wanna cry
when he’s turned away
you’re just a guest
in this world––it’ll have
you for a while but you
don’t get to stay

just as you’re
turning to go
from the cliffs that
tower below
send you off and let you fall so slow

and all your memories
leave you
alone in the hands of thieves
and con men that carry you
off in the smiling breeze

up to the chambers in the spire of the
castle in the clouds
up with the sweetness of
in the castle in the clouds
when you get too cold
and tired

drift to sleep and
when you wake,
all the bad dreams have flown away
let the stars be
your guide
they’re passing over one at a time
see them all open wide
and when you look to see what’s inside … oh no …
it’s true … I can’t believe … oh no … it’s you
haven’t I seen
you before?
