Lyrics

I think I'm gonna go down
to the land of perpetual twilight
wherewhere bags of weird junkstands
howling at the street lamps
And fun house mirrors pose
And shop windows and statues come to life
And gargoyles dance

I think I'm gonna go down to where the street sweeps are saints
Where dog eats dog and the rats are winning the race
I think I'm gonna go down and watch the people chase their lives
And life chase it's tail with death close behind

I can't sit still
Pacing the window sill
Of curiosity

Nine whole lives ahead of me
Nine whole lives to do as I please

I can't sit still
It's the fun, it's the thrill
Of possibility

Nine whole lives ahead of me
Nine whole lives to do as I please

I think I'm gonna go down
Then I'll go down even further
Where sunlight has to be bottled, labeled, taxed, and imported.

There's laughter spilling out of an inconspicuous gutter
It makes you stop to think
It makes you kind of wonder

Just what goes on when you're looking the other way
What's outside of the words that we link.
Just what goes on behind closed doors.
What invisible wonders as re under your nose

I can't sit still
Pacing the window sill
Of curiosity

Nine whole lives ahead of me
Nine whole lives to do as I please

I can't sit still
It's the fun, it's the thrill
Of possibility/

Nine whole lives ahead of me
Nine whole lives to do as I please
Nine whole live ahead of me
Nine whole lives to do as I please
Nine whole lives ahead of me
Nine whole lives to do as I please
Nine whole lives ahead of me
Nine whole lives to do as I please
