Last night, late, I was watching it snow,
it always goes sideways in the city
It comes right out of the streetlights, you know..
Pumped out by an engine deep inside the earth's core
It goes sideways in the city
Cover the shapes and erase the date
This could be any evening in any place
The blizzard blows from left to right,
which is funny cause the piano's playing "Summertime",
So sounds the alarm of Ragtime
It's Ragtime keeping time
Brave to the waves of it's residue,
it's laughter from another room
The white-crowned sounds of possible,
the sound that lures me
"Don't you hurry. Don't you worry, kid, we'll be seeing you.
We'll see you when you are ready."
Ragtime turning out the sun and moon,
it's gravity is soothing
It winds me in a sleek cocoon
I'll reveal myself when I'm ready,
I'll reveal myself invincible soon.
