LyricsEdit

In comes you, not the same person I knew
Looking roughly the same but something hungry getting restless in your brain

Hey hey hey hey hey

So there I go, not the same person that you used to know
Peeking through the fish-eye lens at you

And the coronet blows
Where the oleander grows
And us two, not the same people that our old friends knew

And so down the street, you head, in the high summer heat
White long sleeved Oxford pushed up to just before your elbows

Black pumps and a medium length black skirt
Eating a path through the dark damp Earth
I hope they've got plenty of money where you're going

And the coronet blows
Where the oleander grows
And us two, not the same people that our old friends knew
