There was a grown man dying from fright
so surprised at the things he would say
with a giant fantasy life
running round on feet of clay

naked except for a perpetual debt that
couldn't be stripped away
an unrightable wrong that moved him along oh
closer to division day

I spent a long time living with that
I could never give it a name
when you don't know what you're looking at
oh it makes it much harder to tame

mostly they'd meet when he was asleep and
have some sick exchange
that struck him as wrong and moved him along
closer to division day

can I make an exception for this bad connection that
only goes one way
because I knew all along that I didn't belong
with you on division day

the moon's hanging over the bridge
looking down where the water shines
and the man standing up on the bridge
like he's done so many times

thinking about, how to stay out,
out of troubles way
he was flying to fall away from you all
it's over division day
beautiful division day
