  • Morning is born, 6:24
    Gabriella wasn't sure if she was really sleeping

    Doing her chores
    Like watching neighbor's tv through the kitchen window
    Yeah

    The door growled on its hinges
    Early wind has searching fingers
    Gabriella hung the black laundry dry

    There's dead wood burning out here shout out
    Out here come beautiful fireflies
    Is this as far as I can get, she says, on one tank of gas
    When I'm with captain madness
    Is it as much as I can live before I vanish in a guess
    When I'm with captain madness?

    On the cusp
    Of aquarius
    Captain's not with the status quo gurus

    He keeps mixing life and love with quick cement
    Like her heart is vacant room to rent
    And he stirs it with a wooden spoon

    This is as far as I can get, she said, on one tank of gas
    When I'm with captain madness
    It's as much as I can give before I vanish in a guess
    When I'm with captain madness
    I'm packin' up my broom and my pointed shoes
    And sail from captain madness
    I must be on my way but did love to be with you
    My captain madness

    You are a hollow man
    I am hollow too
    Doubt keeps dripping through these cracks
    I don't know how it happened
    I never cast a spell on you

    Far as I can get on one tank of gas
    When I'm with captain madness
    It's as much as I can love before I vanish in a guess
    When I'm with captain madness
    I'm packin' up my broom and my pointed shoes
    And sail from captain madness
    And I must be on my way but I did love to be with you
    My captain madness
    Yeah
