Flaming Telepaths

Album: Secret Treaties (1974)
  • Well I've opened up my veins too many times
    And the poison's in my heart and in my mind
    Poison's in my bloodstream, poison's in my pride
    I'm after rebellion, I'll settle for lies

    Is it any wonder that my mind's on fire
    Imprisoned by the thoughts of what you do
    Is it any wonder that the joke's an iron
    And the jokes on you

    Experiments that failed too many times
    Transformations that were too hard to find
    Poison's in my bloodstream, poison's in my pride
    I'm after rebellion, I'll settle for lies

    Yes I know the secrets of the iron and mind
    They're trinity acts a mineral fire
    Yes I know the secrets of the circuitry mind
    It's a flaming wonder telepath

    Well I've opened up my veins too many times
    And the poison's in my heart and in my mind
    Poison's in my bloodstream, poison's in my pride
    I'm after rebellion, I'll settle for lies

    Is it any wonder that my mind's on fire
    Imprisoned by the thoughts of what you do
    Is it any wonder that the joke's an iron
    And the jokes on you

    And the joke's on you Writer/s: ALBERT BOUCHARD, DONALD ROESER, E BLOOM, SAMUEL PEARLMAN
