Farewell, Angelina

Farewell, angelina,
The bells of the crown
Have been stolen by bandits,
I must follow the sound
The triangle tingles and the trumpets play slow
But farewell, angelina,
The sky is on fire, and i must go

There's no need for anger,
There's no need for blame
There's nothing to prove,
Everything's still the same
Just a table standing empty by the edge of the sea
Means farewell, angelina,
The sky is trembling, and i must leave

The jack and the queen have forsaken the courtyard
And fifty-two gypsies now file past the guards
In the space where the deuce and the ace once ran wild
Farewell, angelina,
The sky is folding, i'll see you in a while

See the cross-eyed pirate sit perched in the sun
Shooting tin cans with a sawed-off shotgun
And the neighbors,
They clap and they cheer with each blast
But farewell, angelina,
The sky's changing color, and i must leave fast

King kong, little elves on the rooftop, they dance
Valentino-type tangos while the make-up man's hands
Shut the eyes of the dead not to embarrass anyone
But farewell, angelina,
The sky is embarrassed, and i must be gone

The machine guns are roaring,
And the puppets heave rocks
And fiends nail time-bombs to the hands of the clocks
Call me any name you like,
I will never deny it
But farewell, angelina,
The sky is empty, i must go where it's quiet

Call me any name you like,
I will never deny it
But farewell, angelina,
The sky is empty, i must go where it's quiet
