Julian Cope – Autogeddon Blues lyrics

I had a dream in the middle of the day
And now my waking dream won't go away
I watched the city swallow everywhere
Only shantytowns of despair
And these things I saw;
Roadculture at the end of the line
Citydwelling at the end of the line
Motherfucking at the end of the line
These things I saw and these things are fine
I had a dream in the middle of the day
And my waking dream won't go away
Motorway services were the new cities
The poisonous air had wrecked our homes
Gasoline rivers burning up the seas
And I saw my people down on their knees
I had a dream in the middle of the day
And now my waking dream won't go away
So I left the city just to breathe some air
Just to keep my old brain from busting
Yeah, I left the city just to breathe some air
But out here in the fields
You know they're still just fields
Still fences and signs screaming:
"Keep off my land
No Trespass - By Order"
By drunken disorder more likely, old prick
Your drunken development's making me sick
Your drunken development's making me yawn
I shit on your reason
Your rose is my thorn
I had a dream in the middle of the day
And now my waking dream won't go away
So I walk walk walk right over that land
Yes I walk and I keep on walking
I grab a rock from the ground, yeah
This is no game
Decide, I'll let my rock do the talking
Til' a man drives up in a 4 by 4
Up to me all alone on this lonely moor
And my rock says "hello" to his gaping jaw
And my rock says "bye-bye" to his bleeding head
Well, I never saw a dead man but he looked dead
I had a dream in the middle of the day
And my waking dream won't go away
And they wonder why a man behave like this
Behave like he wants to feel the land is his
But I heard Mama crying in my deepest dreams
Mama told me to do it
This is not what it seems
There are more of us a-comin'
There are more like me
Messed up - messed up with nothing to lose
It's a barbed wire fence
Which side do you choose?
And I can't shake the feeling this has happened before
My nightmare returning
In Autogeddon we're burning
And I can't shake the feeling this has happened before
My nightmare returning
In Autogeddon we're burning
