Have you ever wanted to disappear
And join a monastery?
Go out and preach on Manic Street
Where will I be when I wake up next to a stranger
On a passenger plane?

Oh permanent jet lag, please take me back
Please take me back, please take me back
I'm a stray dog sick, please let me in
Please let me in, the mat keeps tripping
Singing vows before we exchange smoke rings

Give me a pen, call me Mr. Benzedrine
But don't let the doctor in, I wanna blow off steam
And call me Mr. Benzedrine
And don't let the doctor, don't let the doctor in

It feels like 14 carats but no clarity
When I look at the man who would be king
The man who would be king goes to the
Desert the same war his dad rehearsed
Came back with flags on coffins and said
We won, oh, we won

Permanent jet lag, please take me back
Please take me back, please take me back, ooh
I'm a stray dog sick, please let me in
Please let me in, the mat keeps tripping
Singing vows before we exchange smoke rings

Give me a pen, call me Mr. Benzedrine
But don't let the doctor in, I wanna blow off steam
And call me Mr. Benzedrine
And don't let the doctor, don't let the doctor in

B-B-B-B-Benzedrine, my, my, my Benzedrine
B-B-B-B-Benzedrine now
B-B-B-B-Benzedrine, my, my, my Benzedrine
B-B-B-B-Benzedrine now

Only one book really matters the rest of the proof
Is on the television, on the

Call me Mr. Benzedrine
But don't let the doctor in, I wanna blow off steam
And call me Mr. Benzedrine
But don't let the doctor, don't let the doctor in

Have you ever wanted to disappear?

It's not me, it's you
Actually, it's the taxidermy of you and me
Untie the balloons from around my neck
And ground me
I'm just a racehorse on the track
Send me back to the glue factory

Always thought I'd float away
And never come back
But I've got enough miles on my car
To fly the boys home on my own

But you know me, I like being all alone
And keeping you all alone
And the charts are boring
Your kids are snoring and the eagles in a sling
You say you're not listening
And I said I'm wishing, I said, I said
