Hey did you hear me mom?
Baby's headed home
Against your wishes
I went into the woods alone
Just look at my face
A vegetable beet red--
I know you gave me money for the motel
But I came here instead
I came here instead

What I wanted when I left you
Brushed by, so close
With the money I got pretty gone
And bloodied some poor actor's nose
One night in the park, the pellet gun
Took out an eye I came undone
One college kid came to see me
He passed me that nylon string
Asked me to play him something
So I tried my hand at "Blues Run the Game"
I barely made it through it--
Then he had to go back to his parent's house upstate

Woke from the dream and I was old
Staring at the asscrack of dawn
Walked these streets up and down
Looking for Paul Simon
All I found was myself
Lost in time I tried
Singing my songs
But I lost my mind
What have they done
With my jealous one?
Whoe is gonna talk trash
Long after I'm gone?
When I was young
They used to find me
Pitching horseshoe crabs
Back into the sun
