You're in my mind, you're in my mind Like an unsettling good melody That I cannot put my finger on And it drives me mad You're past my blood, you're in my soul Preying on my everything, I loose control When I think of you And it drives me mad I walked and walked for miles and miles Years and years went by Begging not to see your smile But no matter how hard I tried You're in my mind, you're in my soul And I should've known I tried to go but you Just won't leave me alone How can I think? I thunk a thought Sinking like a chunk of a rock they left behind Giants used to live here before But now they do no more I roamed the earth with driftwood feet I was flippin' and a floppin' not flyin' just floatin' Begging that I do not breathe Your high so potently You used to rest your head on my shoulder And say carry me over But that's just a thing of the past

Old Man Time Won't you come back to me now? I paid my dues and fines Yet you still hand me the plow I want to fly in a hot air balloon Making my way towards the moon I want to go where man's never been before Where the coo coo bird sings past the shore Old Man Time This is me here in your face Give me back my mind And I will leave from this place I've gathered wood and a sheet made of skin Lend me your fire and wind Fly past the earth to the big great unknown Higher and higher we go I don't ever want to see land No more Past the shore

Down He's going down Down to that place Where X marks the spot "Me and you are going to have a..." Talkin' bout the soul of a man As it sways there to and fro Cut the thread upon the X and go Home He's a' goin' home Soon as he finds your bones Down He's going down Down to that place of relief He is going to be set free

I am but a man, I understand That a man can only do so much And I get by but there are times When I still need a crutch I fell down but I get back up I fuck around and I drink too much But I still need a gentle touch From time to time You caught my eye as you walked by And then everything that I knew Was new again and I let you in And now everything that I do I do for you, your in my mind I need your love and I crave your kiss A man like me needs someone to miss From time to time I've been having dreams of certain things Things that never seem to make sense And though I know it comes and goes I can't help but think that some are prominent I've been the fool and I've played the wiseman And I'm confused now that I still understand That everyone just needs a hand From time to time So please don't look at me And think you'll see just exactly what is on my mind Because I don't know which way I'll go Or if I'm wrong when I am thinking that I'm right Do what I be, sometimes I land And I start to shake and it never ends But all I really need is a friend From time to time

I was living free, cleverly and rich Never really cared about anything I did Then everything changed on the day The Devil took my happiness away I could kiss the moon, drink the 7 seas Wake up on a cloud and do anything I pleased Then everything changed on the day The Devil took my happiness away Think about a trip to the edge of time I don't think the edge of time will really mind If I could feel again, that feeling that I had Then I would promise you to never do bad Oh Lord won't you take me back to that day The Devil took my happiness away

I don't about know your ragtop Your Buddha belly Your foodstamps Your waddle walk Walking with a bottle downtown You never make a sound With your bang chang boogie woogie You're a real wookie A real hairy cookie Looking out the back window I know now that you made A deal with the Devil that you can't escape High tide's comin' and the train is gone Go home Chili potholes never tasted so great She was a good girl From a little town Had a little dog And braids in her hair One bedroom In the big, big city Going to try and walk around In those high heels Workin' it She's a' workin' it With a cherry chainsaw On the center stage I know now that you made A deal with the Devil that you can't escape High tide's comin' and the train is gone Go home Muddy money hole never tasted so great Steel snaggletooth With the red-eye Got the blue shoes And a black tie In a monkey suit That's a little too fine For a slack-jawed local like you I know now What you're doing And I know now That you've been using And I I know now that you made A deal with the Devil that you can't escape High tide's comin' and the train is gone Go home Cross that river and cast that stone

If you ever see me you better run and hide I've got a grudge for you and I've seen your devil eyes Take a hold of me If you ever see me coming you better say your prayers Vendetta can't be stopped by a devil-eyed woman like you I will make you go crazy You're never going to see me You're never going to see me again I'm knocking at your door I know now where you live Your new home is going to get out of control

They wait For the lights to come on And the stage To be filled with their horns Then they play... They think He's a monkey that claps tambourines (clap clap) Hear his music box mermaid She sings... All they see is the beast Not the man... Through the leaves To an old wooden home In the trees Where he lives solo So as to breathe...

Hey there little fellow With your tiny little arms and little feet Crawl inside my knapsack And we can get you in the show for free Hopefully You and me Will be two for the price of one And if we get in Me and my tiny little friend Are gonna have some fun Hey there little fellow Oh where oh where did you go? I turned my head for a minute And then the next thing that I know I've lost you at the show There's thousands in the crowd And you could be anywhere So draw your face On a balloon And let it fly in the air Don't you be scared... (They're going to get the little one) Hog bone hilt knife Cutting through the rope around your wrists Tied tight Time is a factor when they're coming back They're coming after you Their laughter like a zoo It's me and you versus the consortium of freak babies Elephant Men and a bearded lady Why oh why oh why? My tiny little friend and I tried not to look into their eyes And now I know that I am not supposed to go To places like this with my tiny little friend Big top mama with a bottle of gin She don't need help from her bulldog friends Singin' 'Hoo da bop hoo da bop biddily o' bey' It don't matter no time, no place Man with the monocle spot your seat Shoot you in the neck and then wrap you in a sheet Into the river there you go... The apeshit babylon in your tree made a monkey out of me Now I don't wanna wear no more clothes, I'm a jungle man Big top took my little friend So I hit her in the head with a bottle of gin 'Hoo da bop hoo da bop biddily o' black' Grab those tiny little fingers then we run on out Man with the monocle spot our flight Duck a whizzy bullet make it out all right Singin' 'Hoo da bop hoo da bop biddily o' Down the rabbit hole there we go... Hey there little fellow What the hell has happened here tonight? Me and you we saw them 'chet down, hoo... ba ba zoup, ha ha zoom' and we barely made it out alive The show is over It's time to go home I'm sad to see it all come to an end As we walk off In the horizon Me and my tiny little friend

You're in my mind, you're in my soul And I should've known I tried to go but you Just won't leave me alone
