AMPHETAMINE GAZELLE

You know the gravel stones have skipped
and all the light seems to have slipped
into a holy sweating see, no place to be
just when you're trying to see the road
your feet have skipped,
You know that you belong on roads so long,
but then it must be wrong to fell the horse
but of course it loves you so you
just don't force the issue even though you're riding
upside down and all alone
just wait a minute, I'm too stoned
to understand or too catch on
to everything that's join' on, yeah!

Why'd you put spiders in my mind?
to build methadone webs on my time?
Ain't no spider dollars to pay them off
Girl, I guess you know you're playin' rough
Wanta call the doctor, but I don't have dime.

I just can't breathe babe, can't you tell?
Your mind and mine don't meet they're parallel.
There just aint't noTimothy Euclid,
Geometry books just say "Oh you kid."
Got me jumping' like an amphetamine Gazelle.

Hung me from Golden Gates of hell.
No Merlin's here to break the spell.
Ever since you white-powdered my face
Anteater's sitting' at my table-place,
Librium sloth cooking' up a mental gel.
But I'm a gazelle,
But I'm a gazelle.
Amphetamine gazelle
