Don't go crazy my guitar begs,
As it sits in the corner, destroying the universe.
Don't go crazy the fortune-telling parrot screams,
From the top of a tower of terminal brain tumors.
Now I'm in a picture, of Tahiti,
And even the air, is an evil hallucination.
I'm hyperventilating,
I can't sleep I can't talk.
The subway drone shouts: "Don't go crazy!"


Vagabond ballroom, is where I'm from!
Prism rain drizzles on my tongue.
Vagabond ballroom, is my home!
Sixteen floors, 7000 rooms.
Vagabond ballroom [x2]
Vagabond ballroom we're dancing,
On the floor slowly shifting like skin.

Don't go crazy screams the typewriter,
He takes you to the roof, and shows you the nights anatomy.
Don't go crazy croon shoplifters of the world,
There's gonna be good times, just around the corner.
Now I'm sitting in the sober skull of a preist,
And even his breath is an evil hallucination.
I'm hyperventilating,
I can't sleep I can't talk.
The telephone shouts: "Don't go crazy!"

Vagabond Ballroom, is where I'm from!
Phantoms in the aquarium.
Vagabond Ballroom, is my home.
A thousand moons hang from the rafters.
Vagabond Ballroom [x2]
Vagabond Ballroom we're dancing,
The caberet is incandescent.

Open your eyes, the stars are so massive.
Don't you feel small under the sheer vastness?
Open your eyes look at all the dark matter,
How could anything you do possibly matter?
Open your eyes it's the Vagabond ballroom,
Jellyfish lightning up dark swimming pools.
Opera singers riding child faced gulls,
And windows that look out of all the world's raging.
Open your eyes there's a garden of lilies,
Performing a play about your favorite memories.
Aviary's full of hologram hawks,
We'll stay up all night and talk talk talk.

Vagabond Ballroom! [x4]

Is where I'm from!
Paintings speak in the museum.
Vagabond Ballroom is where I'm from,
Cobra's grow beneath the glass floor.
Vagabond Ballroom [x2]
Vagabond Ballroom, we're dancing,
No more time for hesitating.

    General CommentVagabond Ballroom is a another saying of he has no where to go or stay. Everywhere he tries to settle- the corruption and other bad stuff just drive him crazy hence everywhere the song says don't go crazy!\

    Hence "And windows that look out of all the world's raging."

    Er really tired right now but the part with Cobras growing under the glass floors could mean that no one can survive a life of drifting.

    Love the guitar in this song too :]
