    ‘Round harbors, praying on the discarded,
    children go through the pockets of the damned.
    Sailors, who thought themselves free, lie martyred
    ‘round harbors. Praying on the discarded
    flotsam, kids look for treasures unguarded
    mixed in between the bodies in the sand
    ‘round harbors. Praying on, the discarded
    children go through the pockets of the damned.

    Children go through. The pockets of the damned
    give no quarter to frail youth, who are apt
    to thwart the dueling swords, their hearts too crammed.
    Children go through the pockets of the damned,
    grasping lockets stolen when they were scammed,
    and the map that shows where all the kidnapped
    children go. Through the pockets of the damned,
    give no quarter to frail youth who are apt.

    give no quarter! to frail youth who are apt,
    let them find their way! what need they have
    through streets of mistrust, a trap?
    give no quarter, to frail youth who are apt,
    who dance, disingenous, at every snap;
    the culture is their annointing salve,
    give no quarter to frail youth who are apt,
    let them find their way! what need they have?

    Let them find their way! what need they have
    St. Elmo's fire and the northern most star
    On the horizon with a white moon's halve
    Let them find their way! what need they have
    The magical waves of midnight's soothing salve
    Comfort aided worried souls from afar
    Let them find their way! what need they have
    St. Elmo's fire and the northern most star!

    St. Elmo's fire and the northernmost star
    inspire the neighbourhood dreamers tonight.
    Lofty, distant, bright and cold as they are,
    St. Elmo's fire and the northernmost star
    shine on poets, each a fey avatar
    of their endless, useless powers. Might
    St. Elmo's fire and the northernmost star
    inspire the neighbourhood dreamers tonight!

    Inspire the neighbourhood dreamers tonight.
    Stray the streets along with us lunatics.
    We'll dance in the dark and under streetlights
    inspire. The neighbourhood dreamers tonight,
    meanwhile, may cool on the fire escape's flight
    while looking down as madmen and halfwits
    inspire the neighbourhood. Dreamers unite!
    Stray the streets along with us lunatics.

    Stray the streets along with us. Lunatics
    rustle papers and try to guess our names
    in song, beating time with their walking-sticks.
    From one lamplight to the next, our heel-clicks
    keep time, as a dabbing pointillist picks
    each colour-fleck and its place in the frame.
    Stray the streets along with us, lunatics!
    Rustle papers and try to guess our names!

    rustle papers and try to guess our names,
    patriots in resistance, equal in freedom's struggle;
    when you come to take us, expect our passions' flames,
    rustle papers and try to guess our names.
    regardless the loss and misery's inflicted pains,
    our life we give to liberty, justice struck for all;
    rustle papers and try to guess our names,
    patriots in resistance, equal in freedom's struggle.

    Patriots in resistance, equal freedom's struggle
    All gather each night at the liberty tree
    Raised voice in song, raised flag, tea did guggle
    Patriots in resistance, equal freedom's struggle
    Against unlawful restraints and willingly smuggle
    People to assembles imprisioned to set them free
    Patriots in resistance, equal freedom's struggle
    All gather each night at the liberty tree.

    All gather, each night, at the liberty tree
    to tell the tales of your forgotten friends
    who are less than flesh—in only memory,
    all gathered each night. At the liberty tree,
    and under its shade, by an outline, we see
    them and their former restrictive grave attend
    all. Gather each night at the liberty tree
    to tell the tales of your forgotten, friends.

    to tell the tales of your forgotten friends
    you must conujure up memories that lurk within;
    recount the buried past, where truth attends,
    to tell the tales of your forgotten friends.

    to the insignificant, who faithfully followed, you sinned,
    bullied your way and broke their hearts to the end;
    to tell the tales of your forgotten friends,
    you must conjure up memories that lurk within.

    You must conjure up memories that lurk within;
    then raise your glass and drink with me.
    We'll drink to the departed, and speak of the sins
    you must conjure up. Memories that lurk within
    tend to make men bold—fistfights you will always win
    in hindsight. Too drunk to believe?
    You must. Conjure up memories that lurk within;
    then raise your glass and drink with me.

    then, raise your glass and drink with me!
    To birth and death and all that's inbetween.
    Naked we came, with nary a clue, naked we go; so,
    then raise your glass and drink with me!
    If all we get is this life's lot, there's nothing really free;
    better to believe in a greater scheme:
    then, raise your glass and drink with me,
    to birth and death and all that's inbetween!

    To birth and death and all that's inbetween
    moments lost remembered through the years
    an hourglass of times pictured unseen
    to birth and death and all that's inbetween
    caught like large islands in the stream
    moved by emotional stress and tears
    to birth and death and all that's inbetween
    moments lost remembered through the years

    Moments lost, remembered through the years,
    torment the lot of us. When we awake,
    there is naught but the forward face that fears
    moments lost. Remembered through the years
    are the expurgated stories one hears.
    The vacancies make us long to remake
    moments lost remembered-through. The years
    torment the lot of us when we awake.

    torment, the lot of us when we awake,
    aware our dreams are much preferrred;
    with the advent of the day, others, who on the take,
    torment the lot of us, when we awake.
    drained by cares and drama, it's joy we forsake;
    praise and thanks so seldom heard
    torment the lot of us, when we awake,
    aware our dreams are much preferred.

    Aware our dreams are much preferred,
    in revelry we spend our nights
    in complete madness, though absurd,
    aware. Our dreams are much preferred
    to the tameness of life, demure,
    yet a hostile world makes you quite
    aware. Our dreams are much preferred.
    In revelry we spend our nights.

    to leisurely repent next day.
    Ah, how time flies when we delight
    in revelry. We spend our nights
    unconcerned; for it's not our plight
    to worry if the piper's paid.
    In revelry, we spend our nights—
    to leisurely repent next day.

    to leisurly repent next day
    as if the world were ours to spend
    every moment, nought but play,
    to leisurely repent next day
    brings us lack and strong dismay
    wishing life once more begin
    to leisurely repent next day,
    as if the world were ours to spend.

    As if the world were ours to spend
    the oceans gather at it's tides
    with the sun and moon to tend
    as if the world were ours to spend
    waves wash away and mend
    sorrows of our souls hides
    as if the world were ours to spend
    the oceans gather at it's tides.

    the ocean gathers at its tide
    packs her bags, intent to leave forever;
    tumultuous, herself beside,
    the ocean gathers at its tide;
    a thousand leagues she's cried,
    distraught becomes a thether;
    the ocean gathers at its tide,
    packs her bags, intent to leave forever

    Packs her bags, intent to leave forever,
    but stops for one last kiss goodbye.
    She lingers on my lips and then never
    packs her bags. Intent to leave forever,
    her histrionics completely severs
    love. She, once it had gone awry,
    packs her bags, intent to leave forever,
    but stops for one last kiss goodbye.

    Butts, tops; for one last kiss goodbye
    groupies expose the sexy parts
    without a thought. Each wants to cry
    but stops, for one last kiss goodbye
    might be enough to dry their eyes
    'til the next gig. The music starts
    but stops for one, last kiss: "Goodbye
    groupies! Expose the sexy parts!"

    groupies, expose the sexy part;
    delivering the goods, for dollars.
    (looking for love is a poisoned dart)
    groupies expose the sexy part.
    in business, no need for a heart,
    ignore the newcomer when she hollars;
    groupies! expose the sexy part,
    delivering the goods for dollars.

    Deliver the goods for whatever amount of dollars.
    Lost in the hood? Say your goodbyes
    to the strangers above who shut out such fearful callers.
    "Deliver the goods!" For whatever amount of dollars,
    you can't buy an easy exit from this looming horror.
    Life is good! You don't want to die.
    Deliver the goods for whatever amount. Of dollars
    lost in the hood, say your goodbyes.
