intro 01:35
hammock swung by trees near the river bed some say it was the wind 'cause the sleeper seemed dead she's bathing in the sun while I'm combing the beach she's something like a creature cast up by the sea and I feel just like a castaway I don't know all these people except for Friday she glances at me and she takes off her shades if I have a minute to take away the pain her tattoo says this: "take my pain away" "I feel like there's no tomorrow I feel like he's goin' to leave me, it's fate I'll just disappear in the sa-and I'll just reappear as a man and life will be so much easier to live with women like me I'll just disappear in the sand a wave of anger breaks and lands and what do you think of this?" she asks me and I sit down with her and I notice that she's shivering with yesterday's newspaper at her feet I flinch at the lines and give her my jacket somewhere someone is smiling at me "you look like a broken wave" she says we have to leave this place and everyone should take off his shades, face the de-clining sun and figure out yourself what the fuck is goin' on I don't know it either someone like Jesus takes away the pain someone like you will hurt me anyway someone like me says that God is not so great and I am a sot
they need you back at home be sure to leave right after school in a phone booth you will change into somebody cool wonderful days when we jumped off the roof using blankets for capes we really thought that we flew she surely understands a superhero cannot sweep the doormat nor feed the cat he takes out the trash in Metropolis wonderful days when we jumped off the roof using blankets for capes we really thought that we flew and when we hit the ground there was no one around no one would care if you had been there you could’ve saved us Icarus falling I think you no longer care Superman pronounced dead
girls, they are not alone in this world there is always a guy, slicker than me who can fake some love and empathy girls are not alone in this world they can come together and talk about fashion talkin' trash about your friends and how they seem to lower themselves in winning your lust and.. all I can see is your eyes are speaking differently another language, another love another man who is strong enough
I’d like to see that you want me back that I would circle around in your head that you would call me whenever you were sad I want to be your friend I have to see if the sky will be opening if the rain will fall or if the Saviour will be visiting I want to break your heart to make you love me come close to me, the door is open now there you said it, you would like to get to know the rest of mankind they are so much nicer than me I’m transparant and I cause your apathy I spent my days alone no one is ever coming home even if the sky gets brighter I always ask them for a lighter what’s harder than a stone is to travel the distance on your own where I go we shall see my future might be in psychotherapy on Tuesday an appointment with doctor McKinsey on Wednesday they’ll find me in the hallway opening doors for no-one
where are all the lonely girls? I don't know who you are when I look at you even your smile does not seem to be polite where are all the lonely girls?
whenever I will see the light? I know that now is not the good moment to sacrifice I wrote it down, somewhere the day you left the day you snapped whenever I will get my car fixed I don't know it's a lot of money whenever I can circumsize I don't know, just fuck it somewhere, you snapped somehow I was trapped in a web of deceit thanks a lot
