Old Pale Face turned blue when he entered the theater
And since that moment the old boy sure loves a good film
Cuz here hope flows like blood from the nose
He tips his head and rests on the seat back

And when it’s quiet the quiet is complete
Most men don’t know quite how to take it

So he speaks in a voice that almost always cracks
Saying to himself that he loves moments like these
When his words shatter up against walls of indifference
And echo all around

When life’s one certainty comes sharply into view
Old Pale Face laughs but no one laughs with him
That’s a good way to feel alone in the crowd

Yeah, here hope flows like blood from the nose
All the women appear ten years younger
Yeah, here love shows like a raindrop on a rose
But they don’t ever show you ever after
Yeah, here life goes like a mountain stream over stones
The truth is real cloudy and it’s insurmountable
Yeah, here hope flows like blood from the nose
