Artist: Patti Smith and Fred "Sonic" Smith
Albums: Until the End of the World (1991)

No equation
To explain the division of the senses
No sound to reflect
The radiance of time
In the beginningest dream
Halls of disorder
Where we are swept to encircle dawn
Strapped in a low car
Racing through silence
Trumpeting bliss
You could kiss the world

Standing outside the courthouse
In the rain
Seemed like a lost soul
From the chapel of dreams
With a handful of images
Faces of children
Phases of the moon
One little thing you get wrong
Changes the dimensions
Swept memory
Diffused and lost
Like a prayer in the sun

Sometimes you can't tell whether you're waking up
Or going to sleep
Unnumbered streets
All the games cannot be yours
All the sights
The treasures of the eye (the eye)
Does the divided soul remain the same?
No equation to explain
Destiny's hand
By love (by love)
Drawn by the whispering shadows
Into the mathematics
Of our desire (desire)
