hello kate are you in there?
just making sure that you aren't dead
smelled some rotting flesh
i heard you left him alone
in some town with open roads
get down and recount the time is right now
drop your things and burn your clothes
while we're here no one knows
you watched the bomb explode
he sold you a dream and carved you up like meat
lay down the law lock your heart behind bars
while you were sleeping he would whipser in your ear
"the monkey will bite, better each your porage too
there's no use, so don't try to ask the doctor
what's going on inside your head
just fall out and get it right
like all good souls
you awoke to his game you're running circles in your brain
can't believe your eyes
what's up, what is down? he spun you around
what's near, what is far? god knows what you are
can you remember when you began?
(????????????)
while you were sleeping he would whipser in your ear
the monkey will bite, better eat your porage too
there's no use, so don't try to ask the doctor
what's going on inside your head
it's just pretense, there's no meaning
just stare at the ceiling
and play dead for your whole life"

    General Commentthis song was recorded during the "stay what you are" sessions, but did not make the final cut for the record. i found a live acoustic recording of the song, and figured out the lyrics from that. the question marks obviously symbolize the parts where the recording quality faultered out and i was unable to comprehend exactly what he was saying. it's a good song, so if you can find it, download it.

    Hey idiot.

    THIS IS NOT FOR ERMINIE!

    This is "TIME SPROCKET".

    And the lyrics are wrong.

    God you're a moron.
