Wunderkind (Part 2)

Well you took it on the chin
Then it all began again
Then you took it in the mixed nuts
And the guts
Well that’s what you get for flying
Your airplane in living rooms
Chasing women in the dunes
Tied to balloons

Well you went out with a bang
As a line of dummies sang
A Lithuanian hymn way out of key
They went ahead and formed a band
When you flew over their land
That’ll only play its songs
In key of dummy

It was impossible to tell
With that god-forsaken smell
And no visibility if you could fly
Well it only goes to show
That there’s nothing you can know
Unless you see it through the lens
Of your own eye

You can’t remember most of it
Or the self-promotion kit
That you brought along for all your fans to see
But the good thing about the past
Is that it doesn’t ever last
You can just turn it in
To what it needs to be

You were falling behind
And you got lost in your mind
I reached out
But you were gone, gone, gone
Fallen angel
Fallen angel
