And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
And you may find yourself in another part of the world
And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife
And you may ask yourself, well...
How did I get here?
.
Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
Into the blue again/after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime/water flowing underground.
.
And you may ask yourself
How do I work this?
And you may ask yourself
Where is that large automobile?
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful house!
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful wife!
.
Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
Into the blue again/after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime/water flowing underground.
.
Same as it ever was...same as it ever was...same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...same as it ever was...same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...same as it ever was...
.
Water dissolving...and water removing
There is water at the bottom of the ocean
Carry the water at the bottom of the ocean
Remove the water at the bottom of the ocean!
.
Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
Into the blue again/in the silent water
Under the rocks and stones/there is water underground.
Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
Into the blue again/after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime/water flowing underground.
.
And you may ask yourself
What is that beautiful house?
And you may ask yourself
Where does that highway go?
And you may ask yourself
Am I right? ...am I wrong?
And you may tell yourself
My god!...what have I done?
.
Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
Into the blue again/in the silent water
Under the rocks and stones/there is water underground.
Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
Into the blue again/after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime/water flowing underground.
.
Same as it ever was...same as it ever was...same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...same as it ever was...same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...same as it ever was...

And she was lying in the grass
And she could hear
The highway breathing
And she could see
A nearby factory
She's making sure
She is not dreaming

See the lights of a neighbors house
Now shes starting to rise...
Take a minute to concentrate
And she opens up her eyes

Chorus:
The world was moving
and she was
right there with it
and she was
The world was moving
and she was
floating above it
and she was
and she was!


And she was drifting
Through the backyard
And she was taking off her dress
And she was moving very slowly
Rising up above the earth

Moving into the universe
Drifting this way and that
Not touching ground at all
Up above the yard

Chorus

She was glad about it...
No doubt about it
She isnt sure where shes gone
No time to think about
What to tell them
No time to think about
What shes done
And she was

And she was looking at herself
And things were looking
Like a movie
She had a pleasant elevation
She's moving out
In all directions
(like the view)

The exclamation mark! although don't you think the question mark of bewilderment is more me?

Aha!!!! This I know. Love love love talking heads :)
Currently my head is full of birds - no? No birds.
But there is a clock and a spiral. And some soothing thoughts for your heart.
And the camera is my eye and that's usually in a corner in there ready to pick up at a moment's notice.
then those electron things buzzing around - I always get those when I come here.
Hmm. It's a bit busy in my head tonight.

Sleep well.

I'm wearin
Fur pyjamas
I ride a
Hot potata
It's tickling
my fancy
Speak up,
I can't hear you

Here on this mountaintop
Woahoho
I got some wild, wild life
I got some news to tell ya
Woahoho
About some wild, wild life
Here comes the doctor in charge
Woahoho
She's got some wild, wild life
Ain't that the way you like it?
Ho, ha!
Living wild, wild, life.
