Astronomy (Blue Öyster Cult cover) Lyrics
The clock strikes twelve and moondrops burst out at you from their hiding place
Like acid and oil on a madman's face reason tends to fly away
Like lesser birds on the four winds, like silver scrapes in May
Now the sands become a crust and most of you have gone away... yeah, gone away

Ah, come Susie dear, let's take a walk just out there upon the beach
I know you'll soon be married and you'll want to know where wind comes from
Well it's never said at all on the map that Carrie reads
Behind the clock back there you know at the Four Winds Bar... yeah

Yeah! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Four winds at the Four Winds Bar, two doors locked and windows barred
One door's left to take you in, the other one just mirrors it

Hey! Hey! Yeah! Hey! Yeah! Hey!

In hellish glare and inference, the other one's a duplicate
The queenly flux, eternal light or the light that never warms
Yes the light that never, never warms
Yes the light that never, never warms, never warms, never warms

The clock strikes twelve and moondrops burst out at you from their hiding place
Miss Carrie Nurse and Susie dear would find themselves at Four Winds Bar
It's the nexus of the crisis and the origin of storms
Just the place to hopelessly encounter time and then came me...

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Call me Desdinova, Eternal light
These gravely digs of mine will surely prove a sight
And don't forget my dog fixed and consequent

Astronomy! - A star! Astronomy! - A star!
Astronomy! - A star! Astronomy! - A star!
