Lyrics

Cellophane Man

Yeah it’s true, we all wanted you back in high school
And it’s strange how, how you never changed, no you never changed
You used to be so cool back in high school
How long has this been going on, living alone and blue?
Do you plan to take all the drinks you can and drown in the motel pool?
You can stumble out to the motel pool and drown in the water

Well I get out on a Saturday afternoon
And I think I’m going to drive by your apartment
There’s nothing in the street, and there’s no one at your door
I don’t think I’m going to drive by your apartment anymore

Please
See me
Because I be
Cellophane man

Yes it’s wild, you are still a child, but I’m right there with you
What should we do but sit by the motel potel or fall in love blindly?
We can fall in love or be alone or sit by the water
You and me, well, we be what we want to be for one another
I and you, we did what we wanted to; we did what we wanted to
You’ve got to do what you want to do; do what you want to

Please
See me
Because I be
Cellophane man

How Does it Feel

It’s one day then another; it’s just one more day you got to get up – get up.
One way or another; there’s just one way you got to get out – get out.
Of this town; it’s a burden on me and anyone and anything in it to[o] Shake this isolation, yes this isolation, you gotta hit the ground running.

Upon the wheel, it’s your fait accompli.
How does it feel to do anything you please, anytime, anywhere?
‘Cause they box ‘em up and they sell ‘em right back to you.

It’s good to take a train ride; it’s good to take a train up on the mountain – straight up.
Straight up to the window; it’s good to take a ride up on the window pane – high up on.
High up to Chicago, and then again, to Madison, where everything has always been waiting…
For my complication, it’s my complication, I gotta hit the ground running.

Upon the wheel, it’s your fait accompli.
How does it feel to do anything you please, anytime, anywhere?
‘Cause they box ‘em up and they sell ‘em right back to you.

I fell you, and you fell for me; we fell together for a while, and then we fell in love.
I felt alone; I could not fall asleep; I fell down and fell ill, and then we fell apart.
Six windows to midnight – these ties are unbinding me. Why do you talk so much when I am trying to sleep? Quietly dreaming of falling out quietly; quietly falling out dreaming of wandering away…

Best Side Up

Cane-break, walk a mile, out through the window
Take barbed-wire from the lake and patch up your shoes
‘Cause the stone cloud dropping pain on the island
You can pretty much set out to go insane
‘Cause that’s why you came here at all

Got to fly, well bye-bye, see you next winter
In the cold snow, you can go, but you best patch up your shoes ‘cause
The Magic Bus will not come for us out here
Well oh my dear, what have they done to you here?

You do not know what to do
Best put your best side up
Don’t let them spit upon your shoe
Best put your best side up

And all night you can run for the car park
And all night you can run for the dawn
I think I know a way, it’s called another
Best put your best side up

Cane-break, walk a mile, out through the window
Take barbed-wire from the lake and patch up your shoes
‘Cause the stone cloud dropping pain on the island
You can pretty much set out to go insane
‘Cause that’s why you came here at all

Over The Car

All that I see are little-mouth girls and the frowns all day
I’ve seen two are three who are very pretty looking down all day

These school days are a long purple haze
And I wish I could play them for you all night
These castles of sand are just dust in the hand
But wherever you stand you may stand
Stand your ground

You can break him in two or cut off his hair because anything’s fair in your town – yes it is – and you can make him go blind for kissing his kind and crying for god to come down down down

It’s a slow graceful turn into no one
A slow graceful turn out the light
I’m barely awake but I’m breathing
It’s a slow graceful turn
It’s a slow graceful turn onto no one
A slow graceful turn out the light
I’m barely asleep but I’m dreaming
A slow graceful turn

You can break him in two or cut off his hair because anything’s fair in your town – yes it is – and you can make him go blind for kissing his kind and crying for god to come down down down

These school days are a long purple haze
And I wish I could play them for you all night
These castles of sand are just dust in the hand
But wherever you stand you may stand
Stand your ground

All that I see are little-mouth girls and the frowns all day
I’ve seen two are three who are very pretty looking down all day
