2nd verse: 

The wars of pride and property 
The rebel Irish and the promised land Jew 
Fighting behind his eyes and overseas 
Wounded in action and no ceasefire in view 
Brave reporters bring the battles home 
But tonight inside that box 
Just more bang bang ketchup color to him 
Just more Twentieth Century Fox 
All because that ghostly girl comes haunting 
Just out of reach - outside his bed 
And she kicks the covers off his sleep 
For the clumsy things he said 
She commands his head - she tries his sanity 
She demands his head - Tonight unknowingly

3rd verse: 

Vaguely she floats and lacelike 
Blown in like a curtain on the night wind 
She's nebulous and naked 
He wonders where she's been 
He grabs at the air because there's nothing there 
Her evasiveness stings him 
With long legs - long lonely legs 
Bruised from banging into things 
One day he was standing just outside her door 
He was carrying an armload of bright balloons 
She just laughed 
She said she heard them knocking 
And she teased him for the moon 
"Is one the moon, dear clown, 
Tied to a string for me?" 
He tried but he could not get it down 
For truth or mystery 
  

||||||          ||||||           |||||| 
777777          999700           222000 
||||||          ||||||           |||||| 
He tried but he could not get it down      for 
  

|||||| 
777600 
|||||| 
love or money
