Stranger In A Strange Land

Album: Thunder Seven (1984)
  • Andy Warhol's modern man builds a castle in the air
    The deck is stacked but his house of cards
    Grows as high as the market will bear
    It won't take much to make his ship of dreams
    Come crashing to the ground
    You just wait for the wheel of fate to turn
    And the wind of the wolf is gonna blow it all down

    Shallow rivers of fashion run on courses tried and true
    The masses dive in and it washes them down
    Makes 'em feel like they're all brand new
    Blinding hatred caused by fear is
    Showing in their eyes
    They want their truth all black and white
    But a rainbow never tells no lies to a

    Stranger in a Strange Land
    What's a man supposed to do?
    Just a Stranger in a Strange Land
    (Waiting and watching and wondering)
    When will the light come shining through

    To feed the heart's addiction, in answer to my soul
    It may not be the best of worlds, but it's the only one I know
    In the shadow of Damocles' atomic sword
    We learn to live with fear
    Stringing out lives of quiet desperation
    We're all just strangers here
    Riding along on the razor edge
    Burned in the acid rain
    Groped in the darkness, searching for a way
    To fill the empty space inside
    And between us all

    Stranger in a Strange Land
    What's a man supposed to do?
    Just a Stranger in a Strange Land
