Losing the star without a sky
Losing the reasons why
You’re losing the calling that you’ve been faking
And I’m not kidding

It’s damned if you don’t and it’s damned if you do
Be true ’cause they’ll lock you up in a sad sad zoo
Oh hidy hidy hidy what cha tryin to prove
By hidy hidy hiding you’re not worth a thing

Sew your fortunes on a string
And hold them up to light
Blue smoke will take
A very violent flight
And you will be changed
Sand everything
And you will be in a very sad sad zoo.

I once was lost but now I’m found was blind
But now I see you
How selfish of you to believe in the meaning of all the bad dreaming

Metal heart you’re not hiding
Metal heart you’re not worth a thing

Metal heart you’re not hiding
Metal heart you’re not worth a thing

Back of your head

Big monster
Big monster lover
A bigger pusher over
Stands alone in most walks of life
Walks alone in most walks in life

See you looking through me
Like you’ve unzipped the zipper
You hold the big picture so well
Can’t you see that we’re going to hell

Couldn’t park that fucking car
Couldn’t part from you
Saw the back of your sweet mother’s head
Now I know that she thinks I am dead

Burnt flavor you hold the big picture so well
Can’t you see that we’re going to hell

Big monster lover
A bigger pusher over
Stands alone in most walks of life
Walks alone in most walks in life
