Day Dreamer 04:03
Counting on your sense of obligation Gonna get you straight eventually You say you’re feeling numb, I say congratulations They never knocked me out for free Daydreamer Such a late sleeper When she’s awake you’ll never see her Yeah daydreamer The fix is in, declared the Truth Commission Just when the scales fell from their eyes Now what you call real life is just an apparition When you’re asleep, can’t tell no lies Daydreamer Such a late sleeper When she’s awake I can’t believe her Yeah daydreamer And my head is getting warm, while my nerves get unsteady And it’s just the way I like, let you have it when you’re ready But you’re inconsolable, cuz you know that they’re the lucky ones.... Daydreamer Such a late sleeper When she’s awake I can’t believe her She’s a daydreamer Day dreamer Day dreamer Yeah, day dreamer

Did you ever get so high that you remember being born And the way the line went dead on that cold December morn Do you remember how it felt to find you’d become someone else In some abandoned bungalow so unfamiliar Oooh, well you never really cared about me anyway Oooh, now did you? Now every good shot in the arm is like a shot across the bow Of some marauding pirate ship ain’t no more buccaneering now Do you remember where you were when they shut the pipeline down And the way your blood ran cold into the river Oooh, and it’s such a pleasant way to pass the time away Oooh, and when I see you come in I should run the other way Oooh, and I been tryin’ just to find another way to say All this time You were right About those harbor lights

Done 03:15
I been lookin’ for somethin’, that I couldn’t resist And I can’t find no reason, any reason for this Talkin’ to you is just like, talkin’ to the cops It’s too much aggravation, and I just want it to stop I’d rather be like an eagle, flyin’ high Above a mountain top In the middle of summer, I heard the mission bell ring When I mistook you for sunshine, it didn’t mean anything And now they’re makin’ a movie, about the end of the line Draw your own conclusion, ‘bout how the stars are aligned ‘Cuz the stuff that you’re usin’, it’s just a matter of time Ooooooh… I’m still awake Nah I’m not sleepin’ I’m wide awake Well I was dreamin’ My eyes were closed Ah, but I was fakin’ My heart was achin’ But now I’m done

Muffled drums and tambourines Outside a Creole restaurant Afraid I won’t be joinin’ the parade It woke me from my fever dreams Of rumsoaked debutantes And lords and ladies, sipping lemondade Nat King Cole and marigolds That’s what mama loved the most And a bit of Johnny Walker Red And Jesus the daffodils Left to rot on the window sill After the water turned ‘em bad Oh la… la la la la la laahahah And nevermind your life’s a wreck And your jacket’s full of holes ‘Cuz it’s all the same to Elouise She’ll take your hand then you’ll begin To forget all the mess you’re in Underneath the cherry trees Now she dresses like an alderman But she can kiss like Gypsy Lee Find her when the sun is sinkin’ low In some crowded bar downtown Where people go to fool around And watch her dancin’ nice and slow Oh la… la la la la la laahahah

Don’t need no charmful of finches, don’t want no clamor of rooks Cuz I’m not falling for that again, the oldest one in the book Don’t want no diamond star halo, I got a hat full of wine I need a cloak full of eagles, just to get through the night So clench your hands and close your eyes Your heart beats circles around mine Just like the ocean when you slide so nice You’re like the lightning striking twice You got your black magic working, they dig what you’re throwing down But me I can’t get arrested, anywhere in this town I got the teeth of the Hydra, stuck in the side of my head I knew that you was a sorceress, your clean white sheets turning red Entombed in emerald, sealed in jade Yeah Tutankhamen got it made Do Paint It Black like in the good old days With rubied concubines he laid Do you know what I mean I think you know what I mean Yeah do you know what I mean I know you know what I mean Now do you know what I mean I think you know what I mean She got a wicked machine If you know what I mean Look out!

We slipped through the space between waking and dreaming Rubbing the stars from our eyes We came to find something that hovered between us The inhabitants all looked surprised We put in our oars and we slid down the jet stream And set off our flares on the way We conjured the light up from out of the darkness But the dark clouds are heading my way Oh the dark clouds are heading my way We’re up to our necks in the medicine cabinet It’s such a familiar tune The dude in the range rover just isn’t havin’ it, He’s rubbing the salt in our wounds We labored all night in a black crystal mountain Then came home with nothing to say On silvery stallions we shot through the canyon But the dark clouds are heading my way Oh the dark clouds are heading my way
