lyrics

The Great Chefs of China slip their menus 'neath my door And the neighbors wife is screaming I could hear her through the floor Airplanes and subway trains Rumble through my walls And the strings of Mantovani Swimming spermlike down the hall Oh, it is morning I'll take cover from the light While the hopeful, happy minions Are immune and taking flight Please tell my friends I'll see them When the Good Earth bleeds their bones And in the end, I'll think of them Lord have mercy on their souls. And I've come to understand That there's no point in continuing But just for now Please tell them I'm vacationing. From my window I will watch the world fall by And the sirens out there sing my name But I can't even try I'm doing as the Romans do And watching Paris burn I'm hoping to be hopeful soon Someday, it shall all return. It is the evening, Oh, the day's been a disease Weakening me slowly as I fall into its sleeves. So, tell my friends I'll see them When the Good Earth bleeds their bones And in the end, I'll think of them Lord have mercy on their souls. And I've come to understand That there's no point in continuing But just for now Please tell them I'm vacationing.
