lyrics

Madness & Other Delights

I found a curtain I could peek behind. Oh and what a sight.
A mystical magical ride; you got me ten toes over the line.
Said "I'll meet you for tea by 9, Or 6 if you don't mind.
'Cause soon you're sure to slide, into madness & other delights"...

Got the motorcar mania, I've got the motorcar mania.
Got the motorcar mania. Someone better lock me up...

Well I'm a cobblestone fox at night;
Chasing rabbits blind.
A casual roll of the dice,
I said "Well hey there, do ye have a light?"
Gonna' wait until the time is right,
Just like an alley cat harvesting mice.
I'm gonna' sink into the caterpillar's pipe,
Into madness & other delights...

And when the wind turns to straw…
You're greeted by your very last thought…
A picture of something you saw…
Or the dream of a place that you thought you'd gone...

Just a pinwheel in the wind, on the outside looking in.
Oh and when I start to spin, don't you know I won't never end...

Got the motorcar mania. I've got the motorcar mania.
Got the motorcar mania, and ain't no one gonna' lock me up...

Here's a song to bring your lights to dim,
Here's a pail that's always to its brim.
Madness & Other Delights are out here waiting for you to find..
