Lyrics: Jim Caroll
Music: Ray Manzarek
Would you watch me in the hurricane?
Would you shatter in the wind?
Would you sand bag all your destiny?
Would you set the pet bird free?
Would you stroke the eyelid of the storm…
Shut down Radar Skim on Vice
Would you tape the “X”s on the window
Let go Dive slow Lay with me?
East Coast, got a hurricane
West Coast, got the same
High high wind, and the heavy rain…
People got “X” marked/on their window panes
Like Moses in Egypt and the blood stains
Like Moses and Pharoah and the bloodstains
Would you shrink in the hurricane?
Would you scream in its force?
Would the foam form a gyro?
Would you worry what be lost?
Would you cut the flower in the hurricane?
Burn stem/ drop hem/ choose your dress?
Would you strap the child to the swing?
Take aim Feel tame On the wing
Waitin’ for the eye of the hurricane…
Looking for the eye of the hurricane…
