La Fée Verte

Album: Velociraptor (2011)
  • Oh green fairy what you done to me!
    I see Lucy in the sky!
    Telling me I'm high
    I went out for some milk three days ago
    I met Dali in the street
    He knocked me off my feet

    Now I start to see that all's not well
    There's police men in my bed
    Telling me I'm dead
    If only I could show them what I'd seen
    I'll have to take you down below
    Where insects run the show

    Sound and vision
    Turning inside out
    The lines make you look older
    Then you're gone

    And every day
    I've got someone bringing me down
    I've got the eyes of a mad man
    I'm chasing round

    How does it feel
    To live your life where nothing is real
    So just send me
    Down the river

    The neighbours say that I need locking up
    Well they wouldn't be the first
    To want me in a hearse

    No one sleeps for I am still awake
    Pass me over la fée vert
    I'll give you all a scare

    Dogs in heaven
    Every one's a star
    You look behind your eyelids
    Then your gone

    And every day
    I've got someone bringing me down
    I've got the eyes of a mad man
    I'm chasing round

    How does it feel
    To live your life where nothing is real
    So just send me
    Down the river

    I'm not gonna wait for tomorrow
    I'll just look back and wait for a sign
    I'm not gonna celebrate my freedom
    So just send me
    Down the river

    Every day
    I've got some one bringing me down
    I've got the eyes of a mad man
    I can't look round

    How does it feel
    To live your life where nothing is real
    So just send me
