Sparks

Words and Music by Raccoon

as recorded on Loose In The City

 

 

I – See – Sparks

Comin' from the radio tower

And it looks like a meteor shower

They’re comin' from the radio tower

 

Out on the crystal highway where me and my baby used to run

Stands a lonely, broken man – He ain’t havin’ no fun

Singin', “What can you do to change the future?

What can you do to change the past? Yeaaah

What can you do to change the future?

Where can you find the things that last?”

 

I – See – Sparks

Comin' from the radio tower

And it looks like a meteor shower

They’re comin' from the radio tower

 

Out on the crystal highway where me and my baby used to stand

Stands a lonely, broken man with a bible in his hand

Singin', “I was born a wild child – I didn’t sell my soul to rock and roll

I, I was born a wild child - I didn’t sell my soul to rock and roll”

 

We can’t stay this way forever

Something’s got to change, yeah

We can’t stay this way forever, no

Or they’re gonna come and take away our brains

 

And the moon - She keeps on risin' higher in the sky

Well the moon – Well the moon it keeps on risin' higher in the sky

Yeah the moon – She keeps on risin' higher in the sky

Well the moon – She keeps on risin' and there’s a rainbow in my eye…

 

…I - See – Sparks

Comin' from the radio tower

And it looks like a meteor shower

They’re comin' from the radio tower
