Hazy four o’clock shadows
Commence the seance
Nine lives on the spirits

‘Til the desert suns prevail
In every scream eternal
Locks out boredom forever
Paints your fishes black

It’s so exciting
Separate hearts
Midnight close

Almost crying
Underneath the vine
Fly like the jet
The tan and white

Evening I hear whistling
In my ear wax
Seven shapes

It is said that the lyrics most people have proposed for this song (including the above) are actually very far from what Peter is actually singing/saying. However, no official source to the band has released the actual lyrics, so it may be guess work alone for this song.
