I am swimming in doubts my hands are tied and I’m buried in a landslide I can’t figure it out I’m barely alive and I’m stepping off the high dive Into a sea of green don’t ya’ know what I mean? I need a hand to hold onto I need someone I can belong to in the event of Accidental Drowning it’s good to know there’s somebody there. I, I can’t see the shore my eyes are blind and I’m searching for the rewind now my breathing is poor harbored thoughts flood the confines of my mind I’m in a deep ravine don’t ya’ know what I mean? I need a hand to hold onto I need someone I can belong to in the event of Accidental Drowning it’s good to know there’s somebody there. I’m in a deep ravine don’t ya’ know what I mean? I need a hand to hold onto I need someone I can belong to in the event of Accidental Drowning it’s good to know there’s somebody there.

Electric current television flicker across the ghost of subdivision so lock the door close the blinds fountain pen in your hand one last time ground control remote hands the devil stands idle, you’ve laid your plans Lay Kenneth Lay Lay down your fountain pen today and see Emily play take the key to your soul and burrow deep into the rabbit’s hole Loose yourself in a drummer’s rhythm he’s drumming a marathon of exorcism while numbers crash and trickle down pay roll caps, cashing in on a phony crown Vicodin rigged self-esteem, off-shore signing bonus was it a dream? Lay Kenneth Lay Lay down your fountain pen today and see Emily play take the key to your soul and burrow deep into the rabbit’s hole Lay Kenneth Lay Lay down your fountain pen today and see Emily play the king is dead, but he’s not forgotten fruit once ripe on the vine now is rotten!

Way, way back in the ‘70’s when celebrity crushes were everything There was a star of the TV screen he couldn’t have been more than 17. With money to burn and plenty to spare. The Gliterati, Pavarotti all were there. The tabloid papers all would swear that David Cassidy couldn’t even compare. But he got hooked on Heroin Strung out and broke you’re going down like Marilyn but there was a time when you used to sing Sha La La La Wouldn’t it be nice to press rewind and let your super-model girlfriends one last time smile and sign your name on the dotted line they’’ll leave you One and take Ninety-Nine (they’’ll leave you One and take Ninety-Nine.). When you’re hooked on Heroin Strung out and broke you’re going down like Marilyn but there was a time when you used to sing Sha La La La You got strung out and you lost out people say you lost your cool early morning when they found you lying face down in the pool. Sha La La La

If you feel the weight upon your shoulders pushing up hill a boulder everywhere you go I want you to know nobody will ever treat you like I do. ‘Cuz I’m the one that loves you. If the crumbs have fallen off your table you feel that you’re unable to somehow just hang on know that I will always try to be there for you ‘Cuz I’m the one that loves you. I was broken to my soul yet how was I to know I would find someone to love a whole life long. I want you to know nobody will ever treat you like I do.

You swear that I’m strange and you’ve begged for me to change my ways. Well baby who is it you’d like to see when you close your eyes and drift upstream? ‘Cuz when I’m cut, I bleed I wanna stop when you wanna proceed I shut my mouth just to disagree. Well I know what I know and I swear that I know it’s Karma filling in the gaps of your life. Do you want me in a cage? Well baby take away the key and throw it away. Or put me in a pretty box dress it with a ribbon on top I wonder if you’ll ever really stop who I am? ‘Cuz when I smoke, I get high. I maybe broke, but baby I get by get to know, don’t even try. Well I know what I know and I swear that I know it’s Karma filling in the gaps of your life But who am I, who am to judge you ‘cuz you know we judge each other all the time I know I always ask you for the moon but I would give it back to you if you wanted me to. Well I know what I know and I swear that I know it’s Karma filling in the gaps of your life But who am I, who am to judge you ‘cuz you know we judge each other all the time.

Self medicate I wanna retire to a peaceful estate and close the gate on my own Graceland But the drugs they wont help so leave the bottle on the shelf and think to myself that you’ll understand The prescription I’m wishing will one day shut you out and I’ve given all I can but you don’t seem to give a damn give a damn, no you don’t! Self medicate I gotta get out before it’s too late and close the gate on my own Graceland The prescription I’m wishing will one day shut you out and I’ve given all I can but you don’t seem to give a damn give a damn, no you don’t!

I’ve never known anyone who’s loved me the way that you do Tangerine, Tangerine, Tangerine Dream of the Indian Summer Sun. And it’s not often that we agree that this is the place to be. My Tangerine Dream of the Indian Summer Sun I’ve never known anyone who’s treated me the way that you do. Tangerine, Tangerine, Tangerine Dream of the Indian Summer Sun. And it’s not sunset, it only shines the words are all Love You lines. My Tangerine Dream of the Indian Summer Sun Dream of the Indian Summer Sun I move with the mountains and I run towards the sea I swim with the fishes gonna blow like a stiff breeze through the trees blow like a stiff breeze through the trees I don’t know and I don’t care got to get myself on over there I don’t know just what I’m gonna do If I can’t lay myself down next to you I’m down with birds high above in the sky And I swear to you baby gonna run my fingers through your hair run my fingers through your hair I don’t know and I don’t care got to get myself on over there I don’t know just what I’m gonna do If I can’t lay myself down next to you I don’t know and I don’t care don’t know nobody else anywhere I don’t know what I’m gonna do if I can’t lay myself down next to you My Tangerine Dream of the Indian Summer Sun Dream of the Indian Summer Sun

Apple seeds the greenest of the seaweed my fingertips blees stumble through the rushing reeds half of the people you need when you’re needy discover the exit signs sign on the dotted line but I’m a believer in optimistic thinking I’m a receiver of radios tweaking I’m dialing out all the useless information tuning in to my own Pirate station beaming up to your ear drums I’ll make them hum for you if you want me to. Honey bees swarming in a shade tree on my knees begging for a reprieve. If there’s a god above I’m sending out all my love ‘cuz I’m sleeping in sleepy crags wind blowing shopping bags but I’m a believer in optimistic thinking I’m a receiver of radios tweaking I’m dialing out all the useless information tuning in to my own Pirate station beaming up to your ear drums I’ll make them hum for you if you want me. I hear the sounds of radios tweaking I hear the sounds of radios tweaking. I’m dialing out all the useless information tuning in to my own Pirate station beaming up to your ear drums I’ll make them hum for you if you want me to.

I’m not a soldier today mama I’m a space cowboy trapped inside a lazy balloon I’ve got just one thing to say mama I’m high as a kite and I might drift away real soon. I’m not a rich man today mama I’m a quadraphenic dork born with a plastic spork in my mouth I’ve got just one thing to say mama you may recognize me soon I’m from the dark side of the lagoon. Where skies are bluer and breezier Life just became one notch easier with two utensils in one’ it’s just too much fun for everyone So much fun with two utensils in one. It’s so much fun with two utensils in one. I’ve got just one thing to say mama I’m high as a kite and I might drift away real soon. Where skies are bluer and breezier Life just became one notch easier with two utensils in one’ it’s just too much fun for everyone So much fun with two utensils in one. It’s so much fun with two utensils in one.

Do you ever fell you’re falling like a rain drop through the night? Do you hear the voices calling from your head but you don’t ask why? They push you through the door you pull the chord once more as you’re free falling through the sky. But do you really dare? Skydiving without a parachute God save me as i crash through your roof Come join me if you’re brave enough to Skydiving without a parachute You may find yourself drifting through a storm cloud in your life. Send an S.O.S, it’s anybody’s guess if you’ll make it out alive. Your friends may stop and stare. Skydiving without a parachute God save me as i crash through your roof Come join me if you’re brave enough to Skydiving without a parachute But do they really care? Skydiving without a parachute God save me as i crash through your roof Come join me if you’re brave enough to Skydiving without a parachute

Dreams will come tonight reach over the table turn out the light what seems to be the sound of a woman who’s able to fly beyond the crimson like I always do I’m lost now in your senses of you or the moon. Oooh--- In the Middle of the night You cast your light upon my shoulders In the Middle of the night You cast your light upon my shoulders Is your bed floating now in it’s river wading through tide pools of perpetual notions. Is your head still long to deliver oceans of clown schools. Swimming in the key of C Nestled in cocoons I’m lost in your senses as you step back into the blue Oooh-- In the Middle of the night You cast your light upon my shoulders In the Middle of the night You cast your light upon my shoulders Dreams may come and dreams may go But these dreams of you are real i know. In the Middle of the night You cast your light upon my shoulders In the Middle of the night You cast your light upon my shoulders
