lyrics

When all the lights go out
When the street owls hoot and the banshee howls
My voice floats down the corridor
You can hear me now, you lay your book down
And we stroll sideways into the gutter
Lean with our heads pressed up close against each other
And then you smile
'Cause you were bound for glory, child

And later on the road
We are dead and broke, but we are also wise
And just like Jack I'm for the mad ones -
Mad to live, mad to talk, desirous of everything at the same time
Like water from the Nile
Through the rear view mirror as the sun went wild
Yeah, you were bound for glory, child
You were bound for glory, child

On a ship near Darwin Sound
The captain rose early, and his eyes were round
He tried to follow a penguin home
Seen 'neath darkened waves, as his body drowned
And the night before he died
He showed me all your poems, he had every single one ranked and filed
Yeah, you were bound for glory, child
You were bound for glory, child

And so I fucked up again
Gave into strange arms and to glistening skin
I see you shed a tear
Got your mother's eyes
But where'd you get that stare?
And someone will say
'I can't believe anybody would treat her this way'
Yes, I will be reviled
But you are bound for glory, child
