(Only) The Dead Dreams of the Cold War Kid

by Hawkwind

Hawkwind are an English rock band, one of the earliest space rock groups. Their lyrics favour urban and science fiction themes. They are also a noted precursor to punk rock and now are considered a link between the hippie and punk cultures.




If he blows his cover he might blow the lid
So he stays in the shadows like he always did
Deep in his trench coat secret papers are hid
It's only the dead dreams of the cold war kid
Only the dead dreams of the cold war kid

In a town by the wall the machine gunners wait 
To type out the orders that seal his fate
Deep in the shadows where he always hid
It's only the dead dreams of the cold war kid
Only the dead dreams of the cold war kid

Secret career in counter espionage
Covering his fear with clever camouflage
Only the dead dreams of the cold war kid
Only the dead dreams of the cold war kid 

Railway hotel with gun oil on the sheets
The man at the harbor waited in the streets
It's only the dead dreams of the cold war kid
Only the dead dreams of the cold war kid
