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
