Lyrics

[Verse 1] Day after day They send my friends away To mansions cold and grey To the far side of town Where the thin men stalk the streets While the sane stay underground [Verse 2] Day after day They tell me I can go They tell me I can blow To the far side of town Where it's pointless to be high Because it's such a long way down [Pre-Chorus] So I tell them that I can fly, I will scream, I will break my arm I will do me harm Here I stand, foot in hand, talking to my wall I'm not quite right at all (am I?) Don't set me free, I'm as heavy as can be Just my librium and me And my E.S.T. makes three [Chorus] 'Cause I'd rather stay here With all the madmen Than perish with the sad men roaming free And I'd rather play here With all the madmen For I'm quite content they're all as sane as me [Bridge] Where can the horizon lie When a nation hides Its organic minds in a cellar, dark and grim (Organic growth, there is a much underexplored…) (He followed me home, mummy) They must be very dim (Can I keep him?) [Verse 3] Day after day They take some brain away Then turn my face around To the far side of town And tell me that it's real Then ask me how I feel [Pre-Chorus] Here I stand, foot in hand, talking to my wall I'm not quite right at all Don't set me free, I'm as helpless as can be My libido's split on me Gimme some good 'ole lobotomy [Chorus] Because I'd rather stay here With all the madmen Than perish with the sadmen roaming free And I'd rather play here With all the madmen For I'm quite content they're all as sane as me [Outro] Zane, Zane, Zane, Ouvre le Chien Zane, Zane, Zane, Ouvre le Chien Zane, Zane, Zane, Ouvre le Chien Zane, Zane, Zane, Ouvre le Chien (Ouvre) Zane, Zane, Zane, Ouvre le Chien (Ouvre) Zane, Zane, Zane, Ouvre le Chien (Ouvre) Zane, Zane, Zane, Ouvre le Chien (Ouvre) Zane, Zane, Zane, Ouvre le Chien (Ouvre) Zane, Zane, Zane, Ouvre le Chien (Ouvre) Zane, Zane, Zane, Ouvre le Chien (Ouvre) Zane...
