I was walking down the river
Playing solitary quiver
I was thinking about a million different lives

She came dancing up a mountain
Spread her whiteness like a fountain
And an hint of broken turquoise in her eyes

She came all the way to say I didn't stand
A single chance the state that I was in

I said, "Your soul is swaying"
She said, "Hey that's a pretty saying
But unfortunately it is not true"
She said, "You're just looking for another to love you"

Now we all know the world is dying
And expenses multiplying
But you could try to take it easy too
Let me take you for a ride

I will take you for a ride
'Cause in time you'll be mine
When you're mine
It'll be oh so fine, yeah

At the time I wasn't feeling that good
At the time I wasn't feeling that good
I wasn't longing for a strange delight
I wasn't flashing on the dark of night
I wasn't going for no periodic mood

I wasn't suffering no odd decease
I never thought of it as no unease
But when it called me I just had to let it loose
It never made me wonder or even think

Just merely tapping tapping on my instinct
It left me there but I wasn't left to choose
Now I heard stories about this kind of thing
It haphazardly just sucks you in
Makes you do stuff you never thought you'd do

One night it drove me to despair
What if anybody had seen me there?
To this day I still wonder how they knew

They started spreading rumors about my state
You know how it goes around this place
Now and then they just need someone to screw

My senses numb but I could feel
Four, five years been taken out of me
If you'd ask me, there's no way I could prove

The smell of hysteria was chemical
The air around me thick and physical
My mind was racing but myself I couldn't move
It had me running, running, running

Now I heard stories this kind of thing
It doesn't lose it just let's you win
With a little bit of luck you don't come out too bruised

Such anger that I couldn't vent
So much energy I couldn't spend
It would have fucked me over
If I hadn't cut it loose, yeah

I wasn't suffering no odd decease
I never thought of it as no unease
Next time it calls me I'll be ready
'Cause I know

I'll be ready
I'll be ready
