Lyrics

Have you ever wanted to disappear
And join a monastery
Go out and preach on Manic Street?
Who will I be when I wake up next to a stranger
On a passenger plane?

(Passenger plane)
Permanent jet lag
Please take me back, (please take me back)
Please take me back
I'm a stray dog sick
Please let me in, (please let me in)
The mad key's tripping

Singing vows before we exchange smoke rings
Give me a pen
Call me Mr. Benzedrine
But don't let the doctor in I wanna blow off steam
Call me Mr. Benzedrine
But don't let the doctor
Don't let the doctor in
It feels like fourteen carats but no clarity
When I look at the man who would be king

The man who would be king
Goes to the desert
The same war his dad rehearsed
Came back with flags on coffins and said
"We won, oh we won"
Permanent jet lag

Please take me back, (please take me back)
Please take me back, ooh
I'm a stray dog sick
Please let me in, (please let me in)
The mad key's tripping
Singing vows before we exchange smoke rings
Give me a pen

Call me Mr. Benzedrine
But don't let the doctor in, I wanna blow off steam
Call me Mr. Benzedrine
But don't let the doctor
Don't let the doctor in
Ba-ba-ba-ba benzedrine
My, my, my, benzedrine
Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba benzedrine ah
Ba-ba-ba-ba benzedrine

My, my, my benzedrine
Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba benzedrine, ah
Only one book really matters
The rest of the proof is on the television
Call me Mr. Benzedrine
But don't let the doctor, in I wanna blow off steam
Call me Mr. Benzedrine
But don't let the doctor
Don't let the doctor in, oh, oh, ooh
Have you ever wanted to disappear?
