I've been walking on the avenue of criminals
Some place i'd only been one time before
And though my knowledge of the avenue was minimal
I had no trouble finding Amy's door

Well they were, painted black by ancient children of the whoinem
I wasn't sure what i would find inside
I felt that i'd been turned my gas upon his diamond
I wondered was it alright to die

Oh-oh
There was something around me
It seemed like a star but there's nothing there
Oh-oh
There was something around me
It seemed like a star but there's nothing there
Seemed like a star but there's nothing

Beep beep coming on the backstreet
Can you hear that heartbeat
Nobody knows they know
I can’t wait to get to show her
To how to end up lower
But nobody knows they know they know

Well i've been walking on the avenue of criminals
And now i'm lost among the island sin
We draw the lines between what’s physical and fictional and
And i die and i die and i die

Now i'm, feeling good because it’s not what they saw me ah
Coz i'm your gullible American yahoo
So lock you doors and don’t forget what they told me coz
I got a date i'd do the same to you

Oh-oh
There was something around me
It seemed like a star but there's nothing there
Oh-oh
There was something around me
It seemed like a star but there's nothing there
Seemed like a star but there's nothing

Wait just breathe hold your breath for a moment
I can feel my time run out its killing me
And i've been told nine times out seven
It’s gone it’s gone it’s gone it’s gone
Wait just breathe hold your breath for a moment
I can feel my time run out its killing me
And i've been told nine times out seven
It’s gone it’s gone it’s gone it’s gone
Wait just breathe hold your breath for a moment
I can feel my time run out its killing me
And i've been told nine times out seven
It’s gone it’s gone it’s gone it’s gone

Beep beep coming on the back street
Can you feel that heartbeat
Nobody knows they know
I can’t wait to get to show her
To how to end up lower
But nobody knows they know
Beep beep coming on the back street
Can you hear that heartbeat
Nobody knows they know
I can’t wait for that attraction
The audience reaction
Nobody knows they know they know

    General Comment"I felt that i'd been turned my gas upon his diamond
    I wondered was it alright to die"

    i think its:
    "i felt the knob if felt like death upon its dying limb
    I wasn't sure if it was time to die"




    and

    "We draw the lines between what's physical and fictional and
    And i die and i die and i die

    Now i'm, feeling good because it's not what they saw me ah
    Coz i'm your gullible American yahoo"

    i think it's:
    We draw the lines between what's physical and fictional and
    And i cant and i cant and i cant

    Believe it's not what they sold me ah
    I guess i'm your gullible American yahoo

    General CommentWith the references to Gulliver's Travels, I'm guessing it's "painted black by ancient children of the Houyhnhnm".
