Charlie once sat on the sidewalk, baby
He asked her about my name
And at that noise you came and met me
You said that I was to blame

Sugarcane eyes with no decision
It's your trial and tribulation
Isn't It time you made up your mind
And gave me a ticket to ride
I won't get you down until

These light are tripping us out
We are so out of control
Won't you come on a ride?
This time we'll do it for kicks
We can fall away
With the cat and the eye

Pretty face paper people, baby
They all look the same to me
Running on angels ain't that easy
These things you've gotta believe

Everything's kind of different for me
The songs still mean the same
Isn't it time to reinvent me so
Let's take a piece of the pie
I won't get you down until

These light are tripping us out
We are so out of control
Won't you come on a ride?
This time we'll do it for kicks
We can fall away
With the cat and the eye

These light are tripping us out
We are so out of control
Won't you come on a ride?
This time we'll do it for kicks
We can fall away
With the cat and the eye

Here we are
Chasing on a sunbeam
Here we are
Chasing on a sunbeam

Pacing on to sorry
Pacing on to sorry

These light are tripping us out
We are so out of control
Won't you come on a ride?
This time we'll do it for kicks
We can fall away
With the cat and the eye

    General CommentI don't think these lyrics are right, but they are probably pretty close and I doubt the real ones would make any more sense.
    I always thought it was "float away, with the cat and the eye", not "fall". And I swear its "trial and tradgulation"... except tradgulation isn't a real word!
