Trailing smells, fainting spells
I have seen all there is to see
Wish me well, my pedestal
Of planks of wood, they creak when they should

This man is an island
Watching the ships at sea
Forever I've been wishing
That someone could dock with me

Fools walk on with their freedom gone
Married to their bars of soap in jars
Crass little men, pretentious as sin
Waging war against men with guitars

Jealousy is a killer
For those who can't commit
I spy with a gentle eye
Painful resentment within

Hello to the morning
Hello to disgrace
Hey guys, what a pleasant surprise
I didn't expect to see you come round
