Well highly nested in the high ivy,
My 100 square foot canopy,
Overlooking more studio apartments.
And if i stay i will slowly fade away,
Oh yeah, carry me, sweet reverie, tonight.

Struck the shady haze parks,
Where we sleep near shopping carts,
And (no idea) out of children.

And in their yards,
They will watch the slow return.

We can just move on
Hum along baby, paranoia is trailin' you
And you ain't got no money at all
So until the morning calls

And in the moonlight we can
Haunt the streets, that stay open 'til day
Compliment the reptiles to find out,
Just what the tax forms say.
Ain't it pretty, pretty Penny
Has no legs and a severe case of whooping cough.
Threw rocks on my block roll up
Where the hospitals shut off,
To the tune of:

na na na na na na na

And when their doom ensues,
I just want to be with you.

We can just move on
And hum along baby, paranoia is trailing you
And you ain't got no money at all,
(No money, no money, no money...)
So until the morning calls

Don't you worry about me, mama
I'll be off the streets someday.
And don't you worry about me, brothers,
I'll be off the streets someday.
Don't you worry, sister,
I'll be off the streets someday.
Don't you worry, darling.
I'll be off the streets someday.
Don't you worry all, yeah i'll be
Off the streets someday.

    General Commentokay, I just realized that's because I am listening to this song right now and these are the lyrics to Birds (On A Day Like Today). I'll fix that I suppose.

    General Commentofficial from the booklet:

    well i’m nested in the high ivy my 100 square foot canopy
    overlooking more studio apartments
    and if i stay i will slowly fade away
    oh carry me sweet reverie tonight
    we can stroll through shady haze parks
    where we sleep near shopping carts
    and licorice spice grows out of children
    in their yards we can watch the whole retard
    or we can just move on and hum along baby
    paranoia is grand when you ain’t got no money at all
    so until the morning calls
    in the moonlight we can haunt the streets
    that stay open till dawn compliment the reptiles
    for the sake of what their tax forms say
    what a pity pretty penny has no legs
    and a sever case of whipping cough
    pushed rocks on my block roll up to where the hospitals
    shut off to the tune of when the doom ensues
    i just want to be with you
    don’t you worry bout me papa i’ll be off the streets some day
    don’t you worry bout me brothers
    i’ll be off the streets some day
    don’t you worry sister now i’ll be off the streets some day
    don’t you worry darlin’ i’ll be off the streets someday
    and don’t you worry momma’ yeah i’ll be off the streets some day
