Lyrics:

Manhatten
or Dakar
Make no difference where you are
It doesn't matter, what you think
or if you smoke
or if you drink

You're a thread upon the loom
When the Spirit walks in the room

Could be naked
Could be armed
Could be charming
Could be charmed

You might be open
You might be closed
Be one of us
or one of those

You're a thread upon the loom
When the Spirit walks in the room

On the march or
on the run
it matters not
what you have done

nor what you'll do
nor what you'll say
You played a role
made to play

You're a thread upon the loom
When the Spirit walks in the room

It can appear
at any hour
when it comes
It comes in power

you may not walk
you may not see
but you'll become
what you can be

You're a thread upon the loom
When the Spirit walks in the room

You're a thread upon the loom
When the Spirit walks in the room
