I went where all the girls are beautiful
Golden hair and radiant smiles
And cocaine high oblivion to pain
It made me feel so damn inadequate
And insane for the feel good feeling
High inside their helium trancemade vapor
Feeling grim and grimy

Oh Tokyo's not far enough away
To where I want to be today

But lonely ain't a word with me
Absurd you see in crowded rooms
That's where it hits me
Splits me right in half and out spills the emptiness
And no one wants to talk with someone
Cut in two and blue acting werewolf crazy
And hairdooed and out of control
Would you like some company
No thanks I've had my fill today

Oh Tokyo's not far enough away
Oh Tokyo's not far enough away

I want to ride this party off into the sunset I
T's a mystery to me to see this girl over here
With the beer and the queer and the look
So debonair and she don't care
About this looking so good feeling so fine
************ that I be cold chilling in the place
Taste yes I've got it plenty any more and I'd be dinty moore
And dental damns and Irish ham and rocket jam I

Oh Tokyo's not far enough away
Oh Tokyo's not far enough away

I don my fake fur feather boa lust like Noah
Tiger skin ****ing mackin the clones ain't got no style
Wait a while and you can turn on the dial
And see my face with cuties gettin so much booty I
T's my duty to rock this ****er like Stan getz
Get your paws off my cigarettes
I smoke sherman you german looking vermin
You're squirmin now

Oh Tokyo's not far enough away
Oh Tokyo's not far enough away
Oh Tokyo's not far enough away
