Sonic Youth – Karen Revisted lyrics

Heard yr name the other day
It'S been A long long time
Ancient history some would say
Another state of mind
You smell of memory
Felt tip'D electric childe

She takes A plastic pill/She plays the weatherman
She screams 'Religion kills more than it save ya, man'
She painted filigrees/She was the acid queen
She claims society is just A fever dream

Now you live in the trees and salty seas
Tripping out in the blue skies
You shut the door on everything
Too busy getting high
And me, just another dream theory
Lost inside yr eyes

She'S not in yr history books/Lost her mind, kept her looks
Down beneath the radar screen/ she'S lit up like gasoline
Been thru A million kix/Looking for the one that sticks
Never would'Ve known it then/I might not see her again

Top hat and tails for thrills
Red lips and famous hands
Sidelong and glancing still
In tiny dancer land
We kissed/Time slipped
Hard edged/Tight lipped/see you/Sometime
Ask me/If I care
For karen
Miss communication
Stuck in isolation
Lyrics: Lee Ranaldo
Sonic Youth - murray street (2002)
