Lyrics: 

The ghosts of Manhattoes shrieking as they fall
from AT&T
Someone sees it all-Goodbye Mr. Ed
Andy's skull enshrined in a shopping mall near Queens
Someone sees it all
Icarus takes his pratfall Bruegel on his head
Goodbye Mr. Ed
Four and twenty black kids, some of them are blind
someone sees it all
Tolerance of violence by the fellows with no heads
Goodbye Mr. Ed
Some things are so big they make no sense
Histories so small, people are so dense
Someone sees it all. Goodbye Mr. Ed
Some things are so big they make no sense
Histories so small, people are so dense
Someone sees it all. Goodbye Mr. Ed
Never mind the Pistols they laid the Golem eggs
Others came to hatch them
Outside the pale. Someone sees it all
Goodbye Mr. Ed

Lyrics: 

Time is tight love always gets in the way
I'm sorry
Didn't mean to hurt you but I always do
I'm sorry, I'm so sorry
Well my eyes are pinned and my money's spent
I'm sorry
I wouldn't do for me what I would do for you
I'm sorry
I guess I've thrown it away
I've thrown it away
Didn't mean to do it that way
I'm sorry
Time is so tight and I mean it if I say
I'm sorry
I didn't mean to hurt you
I'm sorry

Lyrics: 

To meet her once is to know her through and through
I know I know
But it ain't finished till the fat lady sings
I know I know
How can I help you?
You're just a wannabe
I'm a believer
You're a sex receiver
And me with a big hurt
You know I had a big hurt
From the very start
I'm hurtin' so bad
'Cause you're my roommate from hell
Got to take some blows on the stepping stone
Speak in extremes it'll save you time
You were a saint abroad but a devil at home
Come on here woo woo and kiss it for me
To meet her once is to know her through and through
I know I know
even a glass eye in a duck's ass can see that
I know I know
How can I help you?
You're just a wannabe
And me with a big hurt
You know I had a big hurt
From the very start
I'm hurting so bad
And here come the indians ooo
Got to take some blows on the stepping stones
Speak in extremes it'll save you time
You were a saint aboard but a devil at home
come on here woo woo and kiss it for me

Audio Player Embed: 

Between the dead ring ash of extreme defense
the lonely groups of company boys snapping pics
of scrawny limbs and toothy grins
These are children riding naked on their tourist pals
while the hollows that pass for eyes swell from withdrawal
as he lies on a mattress in a rat infested room
talking 'bout his family and the cold back home
chorus:
Between the dull cold eyes and the mind unstable
no one over here reads the papers pal
between the dull cold eyes and the mind unstable
he's a clean trick and he's shopping for girls
A small black someone jumps over the crazy white god
cranking up the volume of a Michael Jackson song
chorus
Where the frangipani scents the air
she mouths a word that breaks his stare
he grunts his reply in a garrulous croak
"that's a mighty big word for a nine year old"
Between the dull cold eyes and the mind unstable
no one over here reads the papers pal
between the dull cold eyes and the mind unstable
he's a squeaky clean trick and he's shopping for girls
You gaze down into her eyes for a million miles
you wanna give her a name and a clean rag doll
