night sunshine
the ghetto bird chimes 4am
welcome to the west
a mosquito to kiss your hands and feet
welcome to this dirty business
i was surprised
when you called me a lady
'cause i'm still not so sure that that's what i wanna be
'cause i remember the 80s
and i remember its puffy sleeves
you say i'm lucky to be here
then maybe you can take this over
and i'll gladly wear the pants into the next century
past the scanners with ease

past armies of them who once played in a band
and wasted it complaining like a trust fund kid
paying you to play here while they hate you because of it
you say i'm lucky to be here
but i've been driving for 21 days

oh oh oh
oh oh oh
oh oh oh

what's that nasty sound
the e-brake drags the ground
god if you only knew
what my candied fist could do
the curtains closing in from all directions
just answer my question

perhaps it's best if i continue
starring me as you
me as you
starring me as you
me as you

there you are
at the edge of the world
dangling with my heart a-pounding
above a gulf of hamstrung promises
you sang like Auld Lang Syne
you wanted it so badly that you believed them at the time
every fashions flame, every jet plane lie
every second helping of that offramp fame we die a little

you're right, i'm from nowhere
you're right, i'm from nowhere
you're right, i'm from nowhere
you're right

    General CommentI could use some help with these. I wasn't sure where to put many of the breaks in the text, and there are some lyrics I'm definitely not sure about. :)
