From A Balance Beam by Bright Eyes

There is a man holding a megaphone

He must have been the voice of God

The bystanders claimed they saw Angels

Flying up and down the block


They must have been attached to wires

I'd seen one laying in the lawn

With a broken arm so I called 911


Well that's one less founded opinion

One more cause for a dispute

So the street filled like a basin

Up with cameras and their crews


And they washed away the rumors

Leaving just the concrete truth

It was a spectacle

No I I mean a miracle


So then I fell like that girl from a balance beam

A gymnasium of eyes all were holding on to me

I lifted one foot to cross the other and I felt myself slipping

It was a small mistake sometimes that is all it takes

Now I'm staring at my wrist hoping that the time is right

When the planets will align there will be no planets to align

Just the carcass of the sun

And little painted marbles spinning senseless

Through an endless black sky


It was in a foreign hotel's bathtub I baptized myself in change

And one by one I drowned all of the people I had been

I emerged to find the parallels were fewer I was cleansed

I looked in the mirror and someone new was there


But I was as helpless as a chess piece

When I was lifted up by someone's hand

And delivered from the corner my enemies had got me in

But in all of my salvation I still felt imprisoned inside

That holding cell that is myself


So I wait for the day when I'll hear the key

As it turns in the lock and the guard will say to me

"Oh my patient prisoner you waited for this day and finally

You are free you are free you are freezing"


Now I'm staring at the sun waiting for it to explode

This day is gonna come don't know when but it will come

And we will finally know the way out of here


And I will throw away this wrinkled map

And my chart of stars and compass cracked

And I'll climb out that tree all wet with sap

To avoid the hungry beasts below


I'll cut out my lover's tongue and sing

Of a graveyard gray and a garden green

And then we won't have to worry no more

No we won't have to until again
