Low tide tonight, low tide little yellow town
Green life teems up from the underground
Glows in the dark, sifts the sands of garbage
Reach hard in for the ragged star fish

And only her lipstick bleeds
And the color seeds into
All your paint by number schemes
What was yellow? What was white?
What was day? What was night?

And now in soft detective voices, the past rises
And follows you in shapes of rain and dew
And you walk through the Fun House
Those sonic faces hit you like a bus
Till you're knocked down by Doppler waves of trust

And over here I scare myself
And over here I scare myself
Day after day, cube after cube
Dot after dot

Laying down on the kitchen floor
Tapped into the secret code
She's a down girl
The acid's eating out her mind

Ah, the altered universe, step right up
Door swings both ways, ha ha

And now as tattooed children
(Two-legged potions)
Follow us
While lightening bugs circle overhead
While lightening bugs circle overhead

We tear their wings off
And memorize what they said

It's down rain, down time
She's a real down girl
The acid's eating out her mind
Till all is new and all is changed

The altered world spells out your name
(See if it works)
