Metallica – Astronomy

The clock strikes twelve and moondrops burst

 
Out at you from their hiding place,

 
Like gasoline and oil on a madman’s face

 
As reasons tend to fly away,

 
Like lesser birds on the four winds, yeah

 
Like silver scraps in May,

 
Now the sands become a crust

 
And most of you have gone away

 
Oh come, Susie dear, let’s take a walk

 
Just out there upon the beach,

 
I know you’ll soon be married

 
And you’ll want to know where winds comes from,

 
Well it’s never said at all

 
On the map that Carrie reads

 
Behind the clock back there you know

 
At the Four Winds Bar

 
Hey! (4x)

 
Four doors at the Four Winds Bar,

 
Two doors locked and windows barred,

 
One door’s let to take you in,

 
The other one just mirrors it

 
Hey! (4x)

 
In hellish glare and inference

 
The other one’s a duplicate

 
The Queenly flux, eternal light

 
Or the light that never warms,

 
Yes, the light that never, never warms

 
Yes, the light that never, never warms, never warms, never warms

 
The clock strikes twelve and moondrops burst

 
Out at you from their hiding place,

 
Miss Carrie Nurse and Susie dear

 
Find themselves at Four Winds Bar

 
It’s the nexus of the crisis

 
And the origin of storms,

 
Just the place to hopelessly

 
Encounter time and then came me

 
Hey! (4x)

 
Call me Desdinova,

 
Eternal light,

 
These gravely digs of mine

 
Will surely prove a sight

 
And don’t forget my dog

 
Fixed and consequent

 
Astronomy – a star (4x)
