(Mike Pinder) As time goes by you will see That we're going to be free You and me, we'll touch the sky Can you see in your mind's eye That we are one
[Theme From The T.V. Series "The Paper Lads"]

Come along with me
The day can breathe once more
To hear the sound of closing doors
The night has
head arouring from the deafening city sound 
You can't hear a whipporwill in this noisy city 
And tall green grass don't grow 
Along the sidewalks
to give up hope but it's getting hard to cope 
Holding on by a threat to keep from hanging by a rope 
It's not like you've got time working on your side
to the lucky who've survived
Minds asleep are restless with reminiscent desire
Sinners writhe in pain and fright baptism by fire

Cities once great of stone
by the horse
Keep the sticker in the window 'case you wonder what it cost
How could you relate when you ain't never been great?
And rely on rap money
the rep/of material objects
R&b niggas switching from rap to rock sets

Yet once again neither one saw the signs
number ten's simple mind combined with
From the simple idea of Change Blindness, our minds are not as they seem.
An entire existence revolving around what we can't acknowledge.
A brain
Simple and sweet is the city, we'll meet 
Where the train on the street runs underground

People walk by as our worries subside
Many miles from
Simple and sweet is the city, we'll meet 
Where the train on the street runs underground

People walk by as our worries subside
Many miles from
News had drifted on the wind of many minds that this was to be an
Occasion of great importance. For it was said by some that Earth City
Had somehow
by the horse
Keep the sticker in the window 'case you wonder what it cost
How could you relate when you ain't never been great?
And rely on rap money
When I talk to the trees
O great trees who have learned to speak slowly
I know that they believe that they have an answer
Then I walk in the city
Homeless...
I need a Lucy yo...
(Yo...)

[VERSE ONE]
Walk into the store with a pocket full of nickels
And a city full of horns, jackhammers, and rape whistles
all my homeboys seen 'we all ride in a yellow submarine all the greats got stake in the city by the superpower the streets got meat never mind the early
operator
It's all so calculated
She's got a calculator
She's my soft touch typewriter
And I'm the great dictator

[Chorus]

A simple game
just cause you're on my mind
It's made of days, this simple calendar
But it feels like years going by,
Where do I cry?

I've rearranged my whole
On scorched earth return me to be a simple man
I am destined by the gods to walk this land
An embittered poet, a slave to this black blade
Oh, my
the praise-ful "cry" in the lyrics, or the western theme. Who knows. This song has always been very different from other Lu songs... and that's ok.

I'm not
just somewhere I gotta go
I'm always headed for the sea
From California to the big city (one more show)
Is all I ever needed from tomorrow

We don't
like this could even make the devil commit suicide 
hung from a tree on Johannesburg with no parachute 
Big-Bigfoot captured by UFO's 
Haloes were
say names
Whole body tattered like a New York City freight train
Niggas get to barkin', put a bullet in the great Dane
Try me, end up like Rolly
the rain pour down from God above
With the blood of my blade, no love, begin the flood
Open the gates, let the battle begin, wherein
With wind at our
great life can always [G] end

CHORUS

harmonica theme again: [C-G-D min-G]

I'm [C] smilin' from a car, I'm [G] goin' for a drive

[D min]Feel
the compliments belated,
Woke in the morning feeling hated by my loved ones
As I shove guns in my mouth in a dark alley in the inner city
Called the ghetto
Even
