Things are going on behind me, great things
On the shoulders of nothing
Oh, these things are going on beneath me
But I, I just keep walking on, my friend
Ooh, my friend

I don't need no wake-up call
Can't read the writing on the walls
Too busy with my Demerol
Too busy to exist at all

And this world is tilting
Who knows where?
With things I always knew were there
But never got to reach that high
While I was getting high

Above, the day turns pink
The change inside my pockets clinks
Never enough to get that far
Just me and my burnt out guitar, my friend
Ooh, my friend

There's no one I can blame but me
I'm all alone on ecstasy
I wonder why my itching skin
Won't open up to let you in

And this world is tilting
Who knows where?
With things I always knew were there
But never got to reach that high
While I was getting high

Lau, la, la, la
Na naa nana na
La da na na na
La da na naaa
La na na
La da, nah

My friend
Ooh, my friend

I know that I'll look back and say,
"Why did I piss it all away?"
But if I fall, just let me fall
Too busy to exist at all

And this world is tilting
Who knows where?
With things I always knew were there
But never got to reach that high
While I was getting high
