I wake up and look upon your painted eyelids
The world is your oyster
And the trashbags are your kids
The ceiling is invisible
There's a bird sinking through the sky
And every hour that passes
It's teachin' me how to cry
Because it's lonely here
In the ugly part of town
The buildings are all vacant
And the telephones are down

There's a police siren singing
Like a tiger with no skin
The sewer drain is glowing
And I don't know what state I'm in
And the liver is on fire
There's chemicals and debris
And all the roads are blocked off
It's just too hard to see

So cancel my appointments
And set up a whole new show
Because I'm in need of a good hot meal
And a life to call my own

Get me a plate of money
Get me a blanket and a chair
The limitations are limitless
They're floating through the air

Because it's real and it's true
The things I see in you
And there's nothing I wouldn't talk about
With the clearest dream that ever drifted by
