Sitting in my day care, yard is deco painted
Blessed by the drink
Upon the corner where we've seen it
Chased by the planet
Haunted by the medium
Too high to flow toward to break the tedium
Glow from my tv set is blue like neon
Activated the remote I put the BBC on
I've seen this city somewhere
I'm looking out for no-one
Pallor in my eye it get blue like neon

Hell is round the corner where i shelter
Isms and schisms we're living helter skelter
If you believe i deceive then common sense says shall you receive
Let me take you down the corridors of my life
And when you walk, do you walk to your preference
No need to answer till i take further evidence
I seem to need reference to get residence
A reference to your preference to say i'm a good neighbour
I trudge so judge me for my labour
I walk in a bar and immediately I sense danger
You look at me, girl, as if i was some kind of a
A total stranger

Hysterical, ecstatical no matter, call me stags(?)
Have to get a drink, i go to relax
Upon phono, no go zone i go through
Aching aways just to relocate you
Kill us with your fist
Now baby mix it with me
You see me function better when i get approximately
High by my technical flyby
I function better with the sun in my eyes
So goodbye

Take a second of me you beckon I'll be
And when you're sad I'll mourn
And when you tear I'm torn
Take a second of me
Take a second of me
I stand firm for our soil
Lick a rock on foil
So reduce me, seduce me
Dress me up in stussy
Show me and I'll stick em
Will you be my victim
Take a second of me

Mad over you, mad over me, an analogy
Baby taking up up all of my stationary
Sitting in my daycare, mediocre painted
Colliding with the jam
Until the drink got dated
Window when they go when they go boom
I run inside my room
No sense you can trust me
Climb on my sofa
Roll in a daydream
Spliff make daddy go sleep-a-trip dream
