    Garden Of Simple

    some crazy fucker carved a sculpture out of butter
    and propped it up in the middle of the bonanza breakfast bar
    and i am stuffing toast and sausage into my pockets
    under a sign that says grand opening
    while my dog is waiting in the car

    i wake up, i check out
    i fill the tank and wash the windshield clean
    then i'm back out on the highway
    and BANG that's when i remember my dream:

    we were standing in a garden
    and i had a machine that made silence
    it just sucked up the whole opinionated din
    and there were no people on the payroll
    and there were no monkeys on our backs
    and i said, show me what you look like
    without skin

    science chases money
    and money chases its tail
    and the best minds of my generation
    can't make bail
    but the bacteria are coming to take us down
    that's my prediction
    it's the answer to this culture
    of the quick fix prescription

    but in the garden of simple
    where all of us are nameless
    you were never anything but beautiful to me
    and, you know, they never really owned you
    you just carried them around
    and then one day you put 'em down
    and found your hands were free

    so now it's early in the morning
    at the longitude of memphis
    and the sun is setting sweetly on hong kong
    and the big plan is just to keep spinning
    cuz the big bang is only just beginning
    and sometimes it's all that we can do just to hang on

    and what i meant to say is xxoo which means i'm thinking of ya
    which means i've been thinking of you
    all along
