Last night I dreamt a fox had broken in my house Eating all my oranges and shitting on my couch I woke up screaming “someone kill those little rats” But it was just a dream Last night I dreamt a corpse was living in my house Oozing out of orifices with blood and guts and ouch I woke up strangled his hands tight around my neck But it was just a dream Last night I dreamt a mote was built around my house Soldiers shooting arrows into alligator mouth The drawbridge opened and I woke up with a gasp But it was just a dream Last night I dreamt of being chased around by a gnome Running with his pointed hat he broke into my home He pushed me down the stairs and I woke up with a thud But it was just a dream

Sun rise up Eyes sewn shut Eggs and cheese More sleep please Lock the door when you leave Trains on time North bound line I’ll take the window seat I’m neighborly Mind the gap as you leap Ride the subway, ride the subway Like a tidal wave, like a tidal wave Ride the subway, ride the subway Like a tidal wave, a big, big wave Ear buds in Life tuned out Spare change please Sing songs mouth Mind the gap as you leap Stairs to street Look up, it’s neat Take a breath And forge ahead Lock the door when you leave

Early morning in the city of ashes Waking up to the morning show Heading downstairs to greet the pavement Gotta walk helicopter jones Need some coffee and the local paper Seeing people I don’t really know Street sweeping away the garbage All in front of the convenience store I’ll go anywhere you wanna go Afternoon in the city of ashes There’s never any fucking place to park Shadows moving from bench to bench Smoking cigarettes and talking art What do people all do for their money? During the day when I’m at my desk Skateboarding and walking barefoot Riding mopeds over all the trash I’ll go anywhere you wanna go Late night in the city of ashes Seeing people I don’t want to know Walking crooked and driving reckless Headed to the convenience store Bought a sandwich and coconut water I gotta walk helicopter jones Spinning ceilings above the mattress Drifting off to the danger zone I’ll go anywhere you wanna go

You got your suit on, Hair is just right They hold the script up, The news is on tonight You spin me right into a web of doom and gloom Making the world look like its comin’ to an end real soon You got your skirt on, Hair is just right They yell action, The news is on tonight You spin me right into a web of doom and gloom Making the world look like its comin’ to an end real soon The teleprompter rolls A steady stream of death The people eat it up Until there’s nothing left The advertising pays The truth is always swept Comments are null and void And they don’t know better Don’t know better, don’t know better than you.

Raisin’ hell in the back of the bus Spittin’ spit balls and making a fuss Every other word out your mouth is a cuss Hitchin’ at the bus stop! Raisin’ hell in the back of the class All the teachers know you ain’t gonna pass Flunk a test and blow up chemistry class Smokin’ in the boy’s room! Hey! Kid! Your future is full of minimum wage! Raisin’ hell at the high school dance All the girls laugh when you shoot ‘em a glance Fuck this; I’m over wearing dress pants Everyone’s an asshole! Hey! Kid! Your future is full of minimum wage! You’re in detention. It’s alright, it’s okay. You’re in detention. It’s alright, it’s okay. You’ve got attention. It starts out and then fades. You’re in detention. It’s alright, it’s okay.
