Hole in my head can't sleep for dreaming
I'll be checking out some day
No shades of red no room for breathing
No regrets no hours away
This jukebox won't play no Sinatra it just
Curses all night long
And there's no easy spoken mantra to
Put me back where I belong

Late night parade a dreamer's nightmare
And the boys are closing in
She's got no good reason to be there
But her choices all seem slim
Well chaos reigns in this old thumb screw
Baffled lines of hers and his
Oh Shangri La why can't I find you
And your faded promises?

I seen it in your eyes, a wanted man's disguise
And a million bad highs
The lights had all gone red,
The 4am dread
And then you made sense like the star
That you are oh Shangri La

One vicious love after another pointless noise
And shotgun shoes
Would someone please show me some
Other place to hang these dead sun blues
The landlord won't place me an order he
Don't think that I should sleep
His wife just sings me to the border
But I can't think of her as cheap

I seen it in your eyes, a wanted man's disguise
And a million bad highs
The lights had all gone red,
The 4am dread
And then you made sense like the star
That you are oh Shangri La
