Sam Kinison – I Was A Kaleidoscope lyrics

I put on my overcoat, and walked into winter,
My teeth chattered rhythms.
And they were grouped in twos or threes
Like a morse code message was sent from me to me

And cars on slippery slopes were struck,
People pushing through their mittens
As I was beginning
To feel it soaking through my shoes,
Getting colder with every step I took
To your apartment, dear.

And I was a kaleidoscope,
The snow on my lenses distorting the image
Of what was only one of you
And I didn't know which one
To address as your lips were moving.
This is when I forget to breathe,
And all the things I scripted,
They sound unfounded.
And it's the look that you're giving me
That tells me exactly what you are thinking:
"this ain't working anymore."

They got their mothers worked into a panic
Sledding down hills into oncoming traffic.
And parents layered clothes until their children couldn't move
Then they left them outside until their noses were blue and
I got left there too.

I put on my overcoat, and walked into winter,
My teeth chattered rhythms.
And they were grouped in twos or threes
Like a morse code message was sent from me to me.
