Well the sun and the sand were a-holdin on hands
And my heart grayed like a cold chunk of lead
Great green monsters crossed the fluorescent sands
And I counted my friends all for bleedin' or dead

Then the sky sucked the mountains up into the sun
And I hinged open my head and it soaked up through my brains
And in the flatlands where the dealin' was done:
Warm blood pooled like swamps in the bread-oven plains

But I'm a dead man
Forget about me
I'm a dead man
Got no sun to see

Well the fish slept on the ocean and the gulls all did die
And the boats smashed the piers but you can't murder meat
And in my hometown the sailors' veins all ran dry
I stood alone like a liar in the discolored streets

But up here in the hills the sky kneels my way
And the jungle's a big blob of ink in the night
But my friends, they all say, that I'll come down some day
But my heart's sponged with honey and my head's filled with light

And I'm a dead man
Forget about me
I'm a dead man
Got no sun to see

I'm a dead man
Forget about me
I'm a dead man
Got no sun to see
