lyrics

The stench coming off the work-camps
Mixed with perfume and with sweat
Static buzz from the intercom
You ain't been no-one yet

The skull, the ribcage and the mescaline,
All the fires never burned.
All at sixes and at sevens,
Haven't spoken, haven't met

Yesterday the world knew you
These sirens aren't your friends
Yesterday they sang you name, now nowhere, now nothing

Don't forget to take your pills
And don't forget your name
The world can be a cruel, cruel place in someone else's trip
Flow my tears, the policeman said

The skull, the ribcage and the mescaline,
All the fires never burned.
All at sixes and at sevens,
Haven't spoken, haven't met

Yesterday the world knew you
These sirens aren't your friends
Yesterday they sang you name, now, nowhere, now nuthin'

Don't forget to take your pills
And don't forget your name
The world can be a cruel, cruel place in someone else's trip
Flow my tears, the policeman said
