The Dog Tales

*
oh oh, you know sometimes i think life's just gonna pass me by
i've crossed insane fields, beyond the bounds of all reason
and i'm just about dog-tired
mm, it's strange, it's strange, down in the crease, under the soft-light-veil
oh well, guess i'll just dream the same dream
- lead me down
i dream a dog tale
oh yeah yeah

i live, and travel, in the crease
and i crawl through daylight in my sleep
i've been over the bridge, and i was lookin' down
but now there's no chance of wakin' me up
from these light dreams
- some of them go rail to rail
oh yeah some of these light dreams, you know
leave me down
i dream a dog tale, oh yeah yeah

i am beyond the bounds of all reason
i am

and i sigh, as i'm rollin' up my sleeve
but you don't want to lift this load
now i lie here, rusting, covered in a light dream
you wonder some of them glow? - they glow

whoa!
i am beyond the bounds of all reason, i am
standing alone in a gale, - caught in a hurricane, -
down in the crease, with some of these light dreams
- some of them go rail to rail
oh yeah some of these light dreams, you know
lead me down
i dream a dog tale, oh yeah yeah

rpt. intro ( bridge)

back down through the years,
- i can see it in a thousand mirrors -
one caustic reflection
now i lie in my tomb-town, grinding the gears
and turning keys, man, - i make it all up
i sigh as i'm rollin' up my sleeve
but you don't want to lift this load
i lie here rusting, - covered in a light dream
you wonder, some of them glow?, they glow

whoa!

rpt. chorus and fade
