You should whistle when you walk past a graveyard
And hide your face in your trench coat collar
Keep a steady pace but don't move too fast
Play with the coins in your pocket
Or smell a flower
(x2)

You should play it cool
Don't seem in a hurry
Play it cool (cool)

Pass hunger,
Your stomach is a flap of cardboard
and the alphabet becomes (just) a set for mutations, nothing more
(x2)
Your time is almost done

(Whoo!)

    General Commentsorry - there is a line after 'your time is almost done' that i couldn't make out on either early whitney or almost live. this was all by ear so there might be errors ( especially in the last bit)

    General Commentinstead of "just a set for mutations" it should be "just a set of permutations"
    the almost live version of this is sooo good

    General CommentHey, I figured out the last part after 'Your time is almost done.'

    It's just that phrase backwards. 'Enod tsomla si emit rouY.'

    Eh? Eh?
