  • Really don't mind if you sit this one out.

    My words but a whisper -- your deafness a SHOUT.
    I may make you feel but I can't make you think.
    Your sperm's in the gutter -- your love's in the sink.
    So you ride yourselves over the fields and

    You make all your animal deals and
    Your wise men don't know how it feels to be thick as a brick.
    And the sand-castle virtues are all swept away in
    The tidal destruction

    The moral melee.
    The elastic retreat rings the close of play as the last wave uncovers
    The newfangled way.
    But your new shoes are worn at the heels and

    Your suntan does rapidly peel and
    Your wise men don't know how it feels to be thick as a brick.

    And the love that I feel is so far away:
    I'm a bad dream that I just had today -- and you
    Shake your head and
    Say it's a shame.

    Spin me back down the years and the days of my youth.
    Draw the lace and black curtains and shut out the whole truth.
    Spin me down the long ages: let them sing the song.
