Far from flying high in clear blue skies
I’m spiraling down
To the hole in the ground where I hide
Floating down, through the clouds
Memories come rushing up to meet me now
But in the space between the heavens
And the corner of some foreign land
I had a dream
A place to stay, enough to eat
Where you can speak out loud about your doubts and fears
And what’s more, no one ever disappears
You never hear their standard issue kicking in your door
You can relax on both sides of the tracks
And maniacs don’t blow holes in houses by remote control
And everyone has recourse to the law
And no one kills the children anymore
No one kills the children anymore
Night after night, going ’round and ’round my brain
This dream is driving me insane
And if I, show you my dark side
Will you still hold me tonight?
And if I, open my heart to you
And show you my weak side
What would you do?
Would you sell my story to rolling stone?
Or would you take the children away and leave me alone?
And smile in reassurance, as you whisper down the phone
Would you send me packing?
Or would you take me home?
There’s a kid who had a big hallucination
Making love to girls in magazines
He wonders if you’re sleeping with your new found faith
Could anybody love him
Or is it just a crazy dream?
Goodbye Ma; Goodbye Pa
As my teardrops rise to comfort my aching heart
I held your frail hand
And held on to the dream
Goodbye you Cruel world,
I am leaving you today,
Goodbye all you people,
There is nothing you can say to make me change my mind
