  • (Got me goin'... 1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2...)
    Got me goin' "woo"...

    Pain ricochet in my brain like exploding stones
    Thoughts runnin' round in my cranium like pinball machine-a-mania
    Dreamin' of a time when everything rhymed and I was cool, calm and collected
    And all my heroes dropped by just to hear me play

    Thoughts become pictures, become movies in my mind
    Welcome to the KV horror drive in movie marathon
    But I'm just kiddin' and I'm just playin'
    And this is just the way that I'm makin' a living
    Everyday... In my mind and in real life too

    Goin' "woo"
    Singin' "yeah"
    Goin' "woo"
    Singin' "yeah"

    Goin' "woo"
    Singin' "yeah"
    Goin' "woo"
    Singin' "yeah"

    ("Takin' off now...")
    ("Moog makin' noise now...")

    Pain ricochet in my brain like exploding stones

    ("And guitars feedin' back now...")
    ("Feedback massaging my cranium")

    Painful calculations bruise my brain in the pouring rain
    Baby red maples growin' in the hedges
    Sometimes the silver linings come in brown and red
    So to see with your eyes you gotta turn your head to the light
    You gotta see with your eyes to look at what's outta sight

    Outta sight


    Pain ricochet in my brain like exploding stones
