    I woke last night to the sound of thunder
    How far off I sat and wondered

    If you see something that looks like a star
    And it's shooting up out of the ground
    And your head is spinning,
    from a loud guitar

    I am tall and I am thin
    Of an enviable height
    And I've been known to be quite handsome
    In a certain angle and in certain light

    Living on the road my friend was going to keep you free and clean
    Now you wear your skin like iron and your breath's as hard as kerosene

    When I get home from work, I’ll call up all my friends, and we’ll go bust up something beautiful, and build it back again.
