Watching him dash away, swinging an old bouquet - dead roses
Sake and strange divine uh-hu-hu-uh-hu-hu you'll make it

Sickened by sun, with rainstorms lashing him rotten
A looted wreath crowning his tangled hair
Every moment of his youth apart from it's dream was forgotten
Gone the roof overhead, but the sky was a ...
Blue jean-i just met me a girl named blue jean
Blue jean-she got a camouflaged face and no money

Once there was a fellow and his name was buzz
He was just a rookie cop, just a baby buzz
He patroled the sunset strip in the land of the free and the home of the hip

Up until one century ago there lived,
In the zi duang provence of eastern country.

I was walking through the counters of a national concern
And a cash machine was spitting by my shoulder
And I saw the multitude of faces, honest, rich and clean
As the merchandise exchanged and mon ...
I've got the village I love - dig everything
I walk along beside the garbagemen and I dig everything - dig everything
I wave to the policemen, but they don't wave back

I had skin like leather and the diamond-hard look of a cobra
I was born blue and weathered but I burst just like a super-nova
I could walk like brando right into the sun, an' dance just like a casan ...
Fingertip sun at sideshow stalls, they throw the balls
At coconut fur that hides behind coloured shades that blind your eyes
Every child's mother holds an ice-cream cone, they circle round
It's a god-awful small affair,to the girl with the mousy hair,but her mother is
Yellingno,and her father has told her to go,but her friend is nowhere to be
Seen,as she walks through her sunken dream ...

A little voice inside of my head goes on and on (louie, go back ...
Time takes a cigarette, puts it in your mouth

Here's the shop and here's the man who sold me laces for my shoes
There is mr.marcus. boys they say he's mad
'here's the battle that they won' silver t ...
You think you're gonna please her so you walk right up and tease her
But she walks right on by
You're scared to walk beside her 'cause you're playing with the spider who possess the sky
She got the ...
We passed upon the stair, we spoke of was and when
Although I wasn't there, he said I was his friend
Which came as some surprise I spoke into his eyes
I thought you died alone, a long long time ago ...
Strikes the bell for 5 o'clock, uncle arthur closes shop
Screws the tops on all the bottles, turns the lights out, locks it up
Climbs across his bike and he's away
Cycles past the gasworks, past th ...
In this age of grand illusion you walked into my life out of my dreams
I don't need another change, still you forced away into my scheme of things
You say we're growing, growing heart and soul
