I woke up this morning from a crazy dream The Earth was a turning ball of fire Satan and the Pilgrims had wiped the scene And I became their twisted gun for hire Don't let 'em getcha, boy, now use your head the lights they're coming round again "Run like a demon, boy," is what they said and then began to count from one to ten So now I'm tryin' to get out of the city You know where right can be found The beaten side of town Won't never let you down I woke up this morning from a crazy dream The Earth was a burning ball of fire I crawled right inside the spaces in-between A miracle of science to admire But everybody knows the way the story goes She'll love you once and leave you once again The wind sends a shiver from your head to toes Whispers that you've reached your living end So now I'm tryin' to get out of the city You know where right can be found The beaten side of town Don't never let me down I woke up this morning from a crazier dream The Earth was a churning ball of fire The drug and us which (garbled) as I swam upstream And then I saw a temple with a spire There was a sign saying "welcome all you deists agnostics and buddhists muslims and christians caucasians junkies and wreckerheads bluelights and deadbeats, homos and heteros and negroes and downlows Speed-freaks and tweakers, pimps without sneakers, the handy the pure and the atheist nerhu? and the peoples from countries in far-away places, stupid ideas that the public embraces" We all were ??? with ??? ??? and ??? But that was ONLY A DREAM The beaten side of town And now I'm goin' down.
