As far as you take me  
That's where I believe 
The realm of soft delusions  
Floating on the leaves 
On a distant shoreline  
She waves her arms to me 
As all the thought police  
And closing in for sleep
 
The dilly dally  
Of my bright lit stay 
The steam of my misfortunes 
Has given me the power to be afraid 
And in my mind I'm everyone 
And in my mind 

Without a care in this whole world 
Without a care in this whole world 
Without a care in this life 
It's what you take that makes it right 

Porcelina of the oceans blue 
Porcelina, porcelina

In the slipstream, of thoughtless thoughts 
The light of all that's good 
The light of all that's true 
To the fringes gladly 
I walk unadorned 
With gods and their creations 
With filth and disease
 
Porcelina, she waits for me there 
With seashell hissing lullabies 
And whispers fathomed deep inside my own 
Hidden thoughts and alibis 
My secret thoughts come alive 

Without a care in this whole world 
Without a care in this whole world
Without a care in this life 
It's what you take that makes it right 
And in my mind I'm everyone 
And in my mind I'm everyone
In my mind I'm everyone of you 
You make it right 
It's all all right 
You make it right 

Porcelina of the oceans blue
Porcelina of the oceans blue
