Horror Show

B-side to Graduate single

Since I was a little kid I tried to get out of my head
Trapped on the playground I would stare at the sky
I didn't even know why
But daily life it took an evil shape
Some conformed
And some tried to escape
And those are the misfits that I have known
Like a sock in the eye
They feel it to the bone
It's a joke that we all know
We're the bait in a horror show
We are all alone In a horror show
Banish me and mine to outer space
I'd shoot there in a second
Just for the breathing space
I'd put the punks on the moon
For head-room
Mods rule the galaxy
That's the way I think things should be
The creep in you is the creep in me
Gravity presses down like a lie
We want wild sex
But we don't want to die
Do you feel there's no where to go
We're the bait in a horror show
And we're all alone in a horror show
Yeah we are all alone in a horror show
If I spoke in words of only hate
Tell me would you now
Could you relate?
And I,
I wish I met Lou Reed
Out on his darkened sea
'Cause I felt it when his blood would flow
But it doesn't take a thousand years to know
That ship burned a long time ago
And we're all alone in a horror show
We're all alone
We're on our own
In a horror show
