We had some nasty days and bad nights
Dancing days and knock me down nights
Now the new mask becomes your face,
If only for a few manic moments of grace.
I needed badly to find a perpetual miracle,
A qualified dream or quantified miracle.
So I went in search of an omebic fantasy.
If only it could float on my worn chassis.
This position I am in is making me sadder.
I need to climb that living laughing ladder,
But I don't even know where it starts.
If only I was more that the sum of my parts.
The truth disappears without a trace.
That can bring tears to an angel's face.
But that latest angels have no wings.
If only we could reap the seeds it brings.
The big boys are in reality, the only boys.
Full grown boys with their brand new toys
They want to lead everyone down the gangway.
If only time could go the other way.
Do the Watusi on my body again baby please
Just drop me off in the next river to freeze.
I now float and slither around from day to day.
If only I had met you on that fateful day.
