lyrics

Downwards Daze
Words & music: Stephen McBean

There's a place that's not far from my heart
That keeps dragging me home
To rooms full of magic and mirrors and rivers of gold
There's a girl that's sitting in wait
To hear if you're worth what you say
About living and dying and wandering through Kerouac dreams

Let the young bleed their courage
Unbroken be their shallow bones
Down below 'neath the clutter of knives where the mad ones explode
The carnival ain't lost it's charm
Beat the drums to the youth running wild

Stuck in a downwards daze
Lost in the clouds fading away
Out of your head there ain't no escape
Free your chains from those desolate fools
In your subterranean blues

To that boy who's all lost in style
and the girl with the far away eyes

Stuck in a downwards daze
Lost in the clouds fading away
Out of your head there ain't no escape
Stuck in a downwards daze

Yeah, those girls who hung til the dawn
With the boys who couldn't hold on
