Elvis at the Wheel

Album: Sparks of Ancient Light (2008)

  • There is an independent book store
    The last one that remained
    All the othres you might look for
    Have been eaten by the chains
    The soldier on
    On one cleans the windows panes

    and it was there I read the story
    So strange it must be real
    Of a car in Arizona with Elvis at the wheel
    He is looking up
    The sky has something to reveal

    It is the face of Josef Stanhard
    Being formed by drifting clouds
    Above the sleeping Memphis mafia
    And unsuspecting cows

    This is a sign from god....
