lyrics

I was convinced of a crime
The irrational thoughts of an unsound mind
Joan combed the hairs on my head, fed me
Crumbs of bread until I was bled dry
The climate here is getting stale
This country is going to hell
Expedite my passport, put me on the next plane
Leave all debts outstanding under a false name

Make it quick, knock me out cold
Let the autopilot get it under control
Mistakes were made by the street patrol
Explain it to me when we’re all older
The lines are tapped
Cross it out in black
No more heart attacks

I hope she has the finer things
A brownstone downtown
Fit for some Boston Brahmin
Stand tall, stand tall
Don’t think of the fall
Like the Great Charles Blondin
This shape we’re in at 3AM,
Drunk on common sense and gin
Plead the fifth amendment and forget about last year
Long days under a dull grey heatless sun

Make it quick, knock me out cold
Let the autopilot get it under control
Mistakes were made by the street patrol
Explain it to me when we’re all older
The lines are tapped
Cross it out in black
No more heart attacks

Lift your eyes to meet me
Just a glance discreetly
Just a glance could make such a fool out of me

You know it all could come tumbling down in an instant
Things can get a little severe following instincts
You know it all could come tumbling down

Make it quick, knock me out cold
Let the autopilot get it under control
Mistakes were made by the street patrol
Explain it to me when we’re all older
The lines are tapped
Cross it out in black
No more heart attacks
