The only figure I have seen is gone
A ghost I made up in my dreams last night
I toss and turn, I shake his hand
If briefer nights, encounters that I myself will never pull off...

I piss my pants and call out for my folks
In hope that they'll explain this sickly joke
They know that I have never been
a spiritual man and I ain't got the time

I trust my brain
I know it's in control
I have no fear of anything at all
It makes no sense when I'm looking through the limbs
If that thing is a ghost, we should run, run, run
Ah...

And all the people I do love just left
I hear their feet stampede down all the steps
And trickle in my streets all made of stone
I see myself in the eye of the tornado,
the Cadillac camaraderie's away from me

And all the people I have seen are just ghosts
I don't think I'm in Kansas anymore
I got a fishy feeling that
I was bumped on the head, sent straight to the bottom
with the latest fashion concrete shoes

I trust my brain
I know it's in control
I have no fear of anything at all
It makes no sense when I'm looking through the limbs
If that thing is a ghost, ... ah, we should probably run

Or act as if there's nothing wrong
Say the words any old fool can hear
I don't wanna wreck his life, jeopardize his future,
run away to Mexico with his wife
I've got so much to tell you
I've got a story I bet you've never heard
About a ghost I saw when I was dreaming

Oooh...

I trust my brain
I know it's in control
I have no fear of anything at all
It makes no sense when I'm looking through the limbs
If that thing is a ghost, we should run, run, run

Oooh...
