Lyrics


The fingers of dawn pull the sun from the landscape
My ears to the wind tuned for news of a new day
The eyes of the morning are bursting their
Red blood hot sunrise

The city is smoking black diesel for breakfast
My iron's on the fire forging all my intentions
I play in the cave of despair with
The devil in exile.

Sunny side up watch the sky drop
Crackling my sad head
Sunny side down underground
I'm hiding naked dancing with the dead

The world is forgotten by the world complaining
The midday sun hangs like a cheap velvet painting
Lazy Heaven's at sixes and sevens
I won't knock

Sunny side up watch the sky drop
Crackling my sad head
Sunny side down underground
I'm hiding naked dancing with the dead

Learning to crawl all by myself is not a lesson at all
It's not a lesson at all

The night crack smacks the sidewalk a dream for the hopeless
A man with a walkman walks over the homeless
Those same crokked heals blaze a brotherhood trail
Back to Woodstock

Sunny side up watch the sky drop
Crackling my sad head
Sunny side down underground
I'm hiding naked dancing with the dead
