A man named Gene's got a beautiful voice
He carries me home on his beautiful horse
And where she waits, I will ride ride ride
Come on stranger, just sing me a song

And if it's sad, I'll sing along-long-long,
I told you I knew every word

When I get to California
Gonna write my name in the sand
I'm gonna lay this body down
And watch the waves roll in

When the city spreads out
Just like a cut vein
Everybody drowns, sad and lonely
Well everybody drowns, sad and lonely
Well everybody drowns, sad and lonely alright

Sweet sweet dreams, and color and sound
Highways in the faraway to be found
I saw gold mines, in the sky sky sky
They were clouds just waiting to cry

And with the wind
I'm dancing drift drift drift
In the shapes of the place that I miss

And when I get to California
Gonna write my name in the sand
I'm gonna lay this body down
And watch the waves roll in

I'm gonna rest this weary head
On someone who I think will care
But when the stars in the sky start fallin'
I think you'll understand

That the city spreads out
Just like a cut vein
Everybody drowns, sad and lonely
Well everybody drowns, sad and lonely
Well everybody drowns, sad and lonely alright

Yeah I'm waiting
For something to give
Well I'm waiting
I hope it's not me
Yeah I'm waiting
For something to give
Yeah I'm waiting

    General CommentBetween Beulah and Quasi, I listen to some pretty disturbing music--it's all sunshine candy kitten yum yum sounds with bleak abstract imagery--I love my twisted world!
