Track Name: Cats in the Alleyway Scramble
I woke up on a mushroom cloud
world was ending but it killed my frown
woken up in an awkward place
city was bleeding and so was my brain
falling down the rabbit hole
things got iffy but i caught my soul
waking up in a ... up place
city was bleeding and so was his brain

and i know that she needs much love
and i know i can give much love
but i hid my intentions under the rug
like a mouse hides from a snake with fleas
i tried to run down river and portage up stream
but i felt the shocking wake up of the water below
put a dollar or two-hundred where the river flows
it tingled round my body like i caught a disease
now I'm realizing everything, bring sunshine to me

and i know it takes some time
and i know it takes some time to get back in line

but regardless of head-trauma,
i can truly say your hair looks beautiful tonight
and regardless of this saga,
i can truly say your hair looks beautiful tonight
and when the kids, they finally get home
we'll put the fire on and carefully feel the world moan

and the worst things in life are mild
so the cats in the alleyway hide into the wild
and i can handle them drowning out
the kids standing up and the way it really sounds
the wind blows us tiny flakes of gold
so we can finally give up and give in to growing old
i spit my soother at the mocking glaze
father smacked me with the back hand
shined with mighty hate
and the cats in the alleyway scramble
cause' mixing paranoia and oppression
can be a lot to handle
and when the kids they finally get home
we'll put the fire on and carefully feel the world moan
