Lyrics

The chorus of clarinets is crying out good day
But the saxophones sound like they’ve got something to say
The masquerading anarchist is making for the door
He’s got sixteen hundred dollars that he swept up from the floor
His screams are heard now word for word as he’s shot down by the guards
He says mama see me now look how they’ve put me behind bars
And in the corner of the cell he finds a lonely queen of hearts

You hear the church bells chime for the thirteenth time
They let you know that you’ve lost your mind

You’d been at work that day, you dragged yourself from bed
Where you said you’d make the most of it, be happy you’re not dead
But then as four o’clock it rolls around you feel a little bleak
You’ve got Hennessy for your medicine and the sidewalk for your sleep
So you stop into a nearby zoo, where the preacher is taking bets
You think you’re having a good time until you lose your cigarettes
So you close your eyes, the music dies, and from the movie set

You hear the church bells chime for the thirteenth time
They let you know that you’ve lost you’re mind

You don’t know why you made that face
When the suits shined moonlight in your eyes
You could not stop crying when they asked you
What the medicine would do, so I said it’ll turn you blue

Then they locked us up for waging war
And threw away the key, ruling by decree
I said please policeman don’t make me take
This job I do not need, but he never set me free

The lights up on the skyline
Like the ripples on the shoreline
Get you lost inside your own mind
It was a first, it was the worst
But you never heard them burst

You hear the church bells chime for the thirteenth time
They let you know that you’ve lost your mind
