New years eve we dropped mushrooms And danced around the house Making music with everything that we found Incantation replaced resolution And we vowed to allow each perfection That we could be And the goddess sent word That this would be a red letter year They didn't mention how much shit was gonna change around here
It's just as well we weren't swollen with unfocused dread We had visions of sugarplums dancing in our heads Dancing in our heads
First you go under and then you coming up gives you bends And when you break the surface And all you see is your friends So you grab your purple crayon And flush out the picture behind And finally the whole world is made of one unbroken line One unbroken line
And when you wake up sick as a dog With dull eyes and really bad hair Standing under a lit sign with the words on air And the water is rising It's coming in everywhere Just remember you are there You're always, always there.
And representing the white race A man with a monkey for a face Is flying over in his helicopter Whistling dixie and playing dumb
In a town that might put a gun to your throat Or rip the roof right off your place There's a mold crawling up the walls And falling asleep in your lungs And you and I both know how to drink some We will always have work in this town Besides the police are stationed at the bridge And they're preventing passage to higher ground
So let's pull up some barstools And get ourselves a ringside seat For one unnerving moment They're gonna show the truth on T.V
