Been down yeah! Well I look down and my mind blows
away - Deep in the darkness "illuminate" Beyond a
million miles - Something slid up to my head Circling
around my eye - eye - eyes And I said, "Smooth operator"
sez: Get up - get up - and outta here, Smooth operator
sez: Yeah! Lights - band the traffic thunder two blocks
west of the rest - Tore away the bottom and saw life is a
test - Beyond 1,000,000 miles - Well I ricocheted through
my head - One hand kill the other's cra-a-crazy -
What she said - Smooth operator sez: Get up! get up! and
outta here, Smooth operator sez: Yeah!!! Sail into night-
ghost ship a tripping - Struck by the plunge something to
see - yeah - Bootleg the girl - she is a looka - Pure is the
fear that breaks away - Straight to the sun I am a
walk'n state of the art - all that I see [Yeah] New gods
move whipp'n the shore and dash
on the reef - surf city... I walk
alone and stare, man, right in the
sun - Tear-jerk asylum and cemetery
run - Well, how'd I ever get this far
man? Smooth curves switchback the
sweat - Underneath the body, baby -
where what you see is what you -
see and what you get

    General CommentI have been listening to this album since it came out 15+ years ago off and on. This song always sticks with me, maybe because its the last song on the album but this one always make me stop and rewind it. I have no fucking clue as what his inspiration might have been for this track, im convinced he write alot of this album stuck in a closet with only a candle for light and REALLY FUCKING HIGH ON ACID. Been there done that, i can see how someone witha very creative mind could accomplish this "masterpiece" of a clusterfuck colaboration.
