Tried to trace her in town
Appeal for information on the local news
Someone must have missed her by now
A mother or a father or a friendly face to talk her down

She's heading for the great escape
Heading for the rave
Heading for the permanent holiday

Hold your breath till you feel it begin
Here it comes
Do you feel that? Feel this?
Get used to it

She had the face of the Statue of Liberty
Oh, free me
The fire and ice of Amazon and Eskimo
Take me home
The edge and the glance of high fashion
Ask me about next year

Tell me I'm mad, how should I know?
Tell me I'm mad, I have been here for so long
Help me paint a picture, they say it's a lie
Tell me I'm mad, you're a fine one to decide

Burn me in the fires of wild heaven
Like it never never never would stop
(Tell me I'm mad)
Tell me I'm mad, I imagined that

Was it something I didn't say
Or was it something I said?
Leave that stuff alone, use me instead

I know I'm always fallin' off the edge of the world
I got space in my bed
You've got Egypt in your head, I've got a headful of Troy
Chandeliers, Charlemagne, fireworks, toys

You sleep like a ghost with me, it's as simple as that
So tell me I'm mad, roll me up and breathe me in
Come to my madness, my opium den
Come to my madness, make sense of it again


Make a drug of my senses
I'll get you out of your head
I'm sick for you

Love wastes us together
Love holds us together
Love folds us together, flowers

I don't know what you're doing here
When there's murder on the street
I appreciate your concern
But don't waste your time on me

I'm ashes on the water now, somewhere far away
You think you came here just in time
But you're twenty years too late
You won't have long to wait

Easy? You said I was easy
This world sharpens teeth, eat your words
