pulling faces lyrics – anthony phillips

flashing meteors follows
comets climb in starling numbers,
and the saucers slip by upon the milky way.

marking time, counting sheep on venus,
stranded here on ether
i couldn’t get my feet into a windbreak today.

pulling faces and swapping places
grab the bull by the h*rns
but i still seem to be torn
from the plough i have
seen the earth rise
and the bear sailed away…

correlating cl*sters
destination undecided
as the virgan voice cries, “proceed to orion”

lighting years with aurora’s beacon
banished here for treason
they didn’t give a reason for this sentence in sp*ce.

pulling faces and swapping places
grab the bull by the h*rns
but still i seem to be torn
from the pole i have
seen the crab rise
and the fish flew away…

pulling faces in empty places
and now at last we’re forewarned
and though the bull’s lost his h*rns –
after years of trekking
through the starglow,
it’s the end of the universe.
