Oh, how we danced and we swallowed the night
For it was all ripe for dreaming
Oh, how we danced away all of the lights
We've always been out of our minds

The rum pours strong and thin
Beat out the dustman with the rain dogs
Aboard a shipwreck train
Give my umbrella to the rain dogs
For I am a rain dog too
                    -- Tom Waits

I have two tickets to see Tom Waits (again!) in Atlanta, at the end of the "Glitter and Doom Tour." Beth and I are going -- 7/5/08, the day after Independance Day.
