"Joy" as written by Ian Robert Astbury and William Henry Duffy....
I poisoned myself but I survived the thrill of life
I altered my state of mind so I could fly
Traveled beyond my pedestrian ties, my innocence and their sweet lies
I rode in that car as far as it would take me

I don't need no gun Walk into the sun Find what's going on
Find what's going down I don't need no gun Walk into your fun
Fun into the sun Find what's going on

Your velvet tear rolled off my back, your arms wrapped tight around me
I felt so good knowing that you could let go with me

I don't need no gun Walk into the sun Find what's going on
Find what's going down I don't need no gun Walk into your fun
Fun into the sun Find what's going on
Crazy hippie girl soft lips make me swirl

More than I can feel mystery to me Joy de vivre

Mysterious life what do you hold for us in your cloak? I begin to shake
your horses they are frightening me

I don't need no gun Walk into the sun Find what's going on
Find what's going down I don't need no gun Walk into your fun
Fun into the sun Find what's going on

Had my child son I'm a young king now Hey mysterious life
Holy criticized Yeah Joy de vivre
