the Horror years

" ... and i can't sleep cause you got strange powers ..."






On the ferris wheel
looking out on Coney island
under more stars than
there are prostitutes in Thailand
our hair in the air
our lips blue from cotton candy
when we kiss it feels
like a flying saucer landing

and i can't sleep
cause you got strange powers
you’re in my dreams
strange powers

in Las Vegas where
the electric bills are staggering
the decor hog wild
and the entertainment saccharine
what a golden age
what a time of right and reason
the consumers king
and unhappiness is treason

and i can't sleep
cause you got strange powers
you’re in my dreams
strange powers

the sun pours down like honey
the moon runs down like mercury
the stars fall down like money
and you come down to me

and i can't sleep
cause you got strange powers
you’re in my dreams
strange powers

and i can’t sleep
cause you got strange powers
you’re in my dreams
strange powers
