“Land: Horses/Land Of A Thousand Dances/La Mer (De)”
Artist: Patti Smith
Albums: Horses (1975)

The boy was in the hallway drinking a glass of tea
From the other end of the hallway a rhythm was generating
Another boy was sliding up the hallway
He merged perfectly with the hallway
He merged perfectly
The mirror in the hallway

The boy looked at Johnny
Johnny wanted to run
But the movie kept moving as planned
The boy took Johnny
He pushed him against the locker
He drove it in, he drove it home
He drove it deep in Johnny
The boy disappeared
Johnny fell on his knees
Started crashing his head against the locker
Started crashing his head against the locker
Started laughing hysterically

When
Suddenly
Johnny
Gets the feeling
He's being surrounded by
Horses
Horses
Horses
Horses
Coming in in all directions
White shining silver studs
With their nose in flames
He saw horses
Horses
Horses
Horses
Horses
Horses
Horses
Horses

Do you know how to pony
Like Bony Maroney
Do you know how to twist
Well it goes like this
It goes like this
Baby mash potato
Do the alligator
Do the alligator
And you twist the twister
Like your baby sister
I want your baby sister
Give me your baby sister
Dig your baby sister
Rise up on her knees
Do the sweet pea
Do the sweet pee pee
Roll down on her back
Got to lose control
Got to lose control
Got to lose control
And then you take control
And then you're rolled down on your back
And you like it like that
Like it like that
Like it like that
Like it like that
Then you do the watusi
Yeah then the watusi

Life is filled with holes
Johnny's laying there, his sperm coffin
Angel looks down at him and says oh pretty boy
Can't you show me nothing but surrender?
Johnny gets up
Takes off his leather jacket
Taped to his chest
There's the answer
You got pen knives and jack knives and
Switchblades preferred
Switchblades preferred
Then he cries
Then he screams
Saying
Life is full of pain
I'm cruisin' through my brain
And I fill my nose with snow
And go Rimbaud
Go Rimbaud
Go Rimbaud
And go Johnny go
And do the watusi
Oh do the watusi

There's a little place
A place called space
It's a pretty little place
It's across the tracks
Across the tracks and the name of the place is
You like it like that
You like it like that
You like it like that
You like it like that
And the name of the band is
Twistelettes twistelettes twistelettes twistelettes
Twistelettes twistelettes twistelettes twistelettes

Baby calm down
Better calm down
In the night in the eye of the forest
There's a mare
Black and shining
With yellow hair
I put my fingers
Through her silken hair and found a stair
I didn't waste time I just walked right up
And saw that up there
There is a sea
Up there
There is a sea
Up there
There is a sea
The sea's the possibility
There is no land but the land
(Up there is just a sea of possibilities)
There is no sea but the sea
(Up there is a wall of possibilities)
There is no keeper but the key
(Up there there are several walls of possibilities)
Except for one who seizes possibilities
One who seizes possibilities
(Up there)
I seize the first possibility
Is the sea around me
I was standing there with my legs spread like a sailor
(In a sea of possibilities)
I felt his hand on my knee
(On the screen)
And I looked at Johnny
And handed him
A branch of cold flame
(In the heart of man)
The waves were coming in like Arabian stallions
Gradually lapping into sea horses
He picked up the blade
And he pressed it against his
Smooth throat
(The spoon)
And let it deep in
(The veins)
Dip in to the sea
To the sea of possibilities
It started hardening
Dip in to the sea
To the sea of possibilities
It started hardening in my hand
And I felt the arrows of desire

I put my hand
Inside his cranium
Oh we had such a brainiac-amour
But no more,
No more
I gotta move
From my mind to the area
(Go Rimbaud go Rimbaud go Rimbaud)
And go Johnny go and do the watusi
Yeah do the watusi
Do the watusi
Shined open
Coiled snakes
White and shiny twirling and encircling
Our lives are now entwined
We will fall
Yes we're together
Twining
Your nerves
Your mane of the black shining horse
And my fingers all entwined through the air
I could feel it
It was the hair going through my fingers,
(I feel it I feel it I feel it I feel it)
The hairs were like wires going through my body
I I thats how I
Thats how I
I died
(At that tower of babel they knew what they were after)
(They knew what they were after)
[Everything on the current] moved up
I tried to stop it
But it was too warm
Too unbelievably smooth
Like playing in the sea
In the sea of possibility
The possibility
Was a blade
A shiny blade
I hold the key to the sea of possibilities
There's no land but the land

Looked at my hands
And there's a red stream
That went streaming
Through the sands
Like fingers
Like arteries
Like fingers
(How much fits between the eyes of a horse?)

He lay
Pressing it against his throat (your eyes)
He opened his throat (your eyes)
His vocal chords started shooting like (of a horse)
Mad pituitary glands
The scream he made (and my heart)
Was so high (my heart)
Pitched that nobody heard
No one heard that cry
No one heard (Johnny)
The butterfly
Flapping in his throat
(His fingers)
Nobody heard
He was on that bed

(Possibility)
(Like mad pituitary glands)
It was a
Black tube

And go inside the black tube
So when he looked out into the steep
Saw this sweet young thing (fender one)
Humping on the parking meter
Leaning on the parking meter

In the sheets
There was a man
Dancing around
To the simple
Rock and roll
