I've been to London
I've sailed a ship around the world
I've counted angels
I've seen a tangerine girl

And though it's leading me on
And though I know that it's wrong
And though I'm living my dream
I still can't seem to move on

I've swallowed aspirin
I've seen the white of my own eyes
I've felt the hunger
I've swallowed handfuls of flies

I've watched the felines
I've watched them scratch
My skin away
I've tripped the land mines
I've watched them
Blow my face away

I still can't finish this song

As she sang on...
