lyrics

take your artifacts and make them shine
like the fiercest glaze
if it works for you, hit the wall
you need someone to blame
let the phonies in, control your life
now you've got it made
quitting everything and everyone
before it is too late

I always tell you, "finish what you start"
but you're hanging around
don't you know I have the mind of a Guru?
despite the facts I'm not better than you
but you're crossing the line
I know you live the life of a Zulu
dipping your fingers in the huge cosmic hole
the world is so small
I think you're losing your way
like a monster with dope in his brain
half-finished stew
maybe we're going insane

pack your things and leave this town
back into the wild
save your prayers, keep them underground
sing them for a while
for the ugly elements locked inside the safe
won't restore the evidence and let you glide into the light

I always tell you, "finish what you start"
but you're hanging around
don't you know I have the mind of a Guru?
despite the facts I'm not better than you
but you're crossing the line
I know you lead the life of a Zulu
dipping your fingers in the huge cosmic hole
the world is so small
I think you're losing your way
like a monster with dope in his brain
half-finished day
maybe we're going insane
