Made Of Stone

  • Your knuckles whiten on the wheel
    The last thing that your hands will feel
    Your final flight can't be delayed

    No earth, just sky it's so surreal
    Your pink fat lips let go a scream
    You fry and melt I love the scene

    Sometimes I fantasize
    When the streets are cold and lonely
    And the cars they burn below me
    Don't these times fill your eyes

    When the streets are cold and lonely
    And the cars they burn below me
    Are you all alone
    Is anybody home?

    I'm standing warm against the cold
    Now that the flames have taken hold
    At least you left your life in style

    And for far as I can see
    Ten twisted grills grin back at me
    Bad money dies I love the scene

    Sometimes I fantasize
    When the streets are cold and lonely
    And the cars they burn below me
    Don't these times fill your eyes

    When the streets are cold and lonely
    And the cars they burn below me
    Are you all alone
    Is anybody home?

    Sometimes I fantasize
    When the streets are cold and lonely
    And the cars they burn below me
    Don't these times fill your eyes

    When the streets are cold and lonely
    And the cars they burn below me
    Are you all alone
    Are you made of stone? Writer/s: IAN GEORGE BROWN, JOHN SQUIRE
