lyrics

The kids are going crazy in the midsummer’s air
Jumping and a yowling with that slicked back hair
I took a deep pull held it in my mouth
I was flying so high all rockabillied out
Said daddy why you looking so enchained?
Roy's on the table I think he just called out my name
If love is a cloud that holds a lot of rain
Then music is the sun that takes away all your pain

I said hey, I think you know who I'm talking about
I said hey, it's 6 AM you know who I'm talking about

They got jobs and the savings game
Going to bed to wake up and do exactly the same
I took a deep pull held it in my mouth
Still flying so high, still rockabillied out
Went stumbling through the dead carnival
The winter had come all the flaps were unrolled
Went into a quiet place to shake off the day
Found him inside looking all old and frayed

When did they get you in chains?
We were so reckless why'd you give up the game?
One thing in this world I know to be true
Without the courage to be different you're already in the tomb.
