over the skies at the Rhinian-Neil-Young-center, Castle Huelchrath:
You can even see the Earth’s shadow on the moon. On top is Venus, the more brilliant planet. Next to the moon is Jupiter, the gas giant, our solar system vacuum cleaner.
Up and down the old homestead
The naked rider gallops through his head
And although the moon isn’t full
He still feels the pull.
Out on the floor where the cowboys dance
Approaching slowly at a glance
Here comes the shadow of his stance
The reins are fallin’ from his hands.
Why do you ride that crazy horse?
Inquires the shadow with little remorse
Just then a priest comes down the stairs
With a sack of dreams and old nightmares.
Thanks to Grandpa.
