lyrics

Oh Believe Me If

We were buying a lemon
Got ourselves in a squeeze
Shopped around for a four-door
Seems now they grow’m in trees

Satisfaction on Sunday
Got me singing the blues
A body builder in Bombay
Lifting barbells on the news

Oh Believe Me If you could only see me now
Got my milking fingers firmly on the cash cow

I was on a vacation
When I received a call
A lady asked for my information
And so I gave her it all

Seems that there was a mix-up
Somebody down at the bank
She said she’d fix it and hung up
I called her back and said thanks

Oh Believe Me If you could only see me now
Got my milking fingers firmly on the cash cow
And it all could change but it can’t get stranger than now

(Bridge 1)
I can see you walking in the sun down
Wearing facial gestures of an undressed clown

(Bridge 2)
Heavily sedated he
Went under to the 
Sound of bowling pins
Falling from a ceiling
Fan who got his autograph
In crayon
Ma genta red she  
Opened up a 
Door that led to other doors
That opened
In to the place where 
Everything began
The film reran

Someone was fleeing from lawmen
Got in the back of a van
It was the son of Samantha
Or the daughter of Sam

They made a run for the border
Quite unaware of the risk
To everything there’s an order
Saved on an invisible   
Disc

Is there anything I can say to melt the ice?
Something nondescript that’ll leave me seeming nice
There’s a football game on a television screen
In a mind inside of a mind 
Having a lucid dream
In a mind inside of a mind 
Having a lucid dream
In a mind inside of a mind 
Having a lucid dream

Mark’s mother is Irish Catholic. His father was a Russian Jew. In the 2nd grade, Mark veered “off course”… secretly. It is not clear how the "thread" was lost, but it had to do with a botched reading assignment; a chapter in a blue and yellow book left unread. Later, there were 2 nervous system glitches and at least 2 ecstatic dot connecting sessions. Finally, a Need… to sing. ... more
