Rocky was old, and the rocky road
was his life, a smile in a knife,
freed to bleed into the town.
the stores were full of blood and oranges.

-- he walked around like a silver clown,
lost in a town of invisibles
the clock was stuck at 13
..a fool juggled oranges.

Rocky was hard when saw the boy
24 that was all just 24
and that kid liked the way that man
danced across the street to shake his hand

he looked around at the old town
that boy had to laugh
that clock was stuck at 16
an old man eating oranges
