I pull at you, reach within for the hidden star
so surprised, don’t you know you wear it?
glittering in your soul, so bright you are

look at you, like a hermit inside a cell
biding time, waiting for something
what you want, it's not so hard to tell

telescope, stretch you out to the very edge
of your near, of your far, and longing
walk you right, right up to that ledge

The droplets are Tom Hanson and Gordon Ranney. We make loud, fuzzy pop music ... guitars will jangle, shoes will be gazed upon, dreams will go bump in the night.
