Wrong With Me

Right! We start out from here, from the first,
Way down there, where we'll stare 'em all down,
All full of unrequieted thirst,
Get lost, like we all just went to town,
Poorly pronounced in some short, sharp burst,
The scene the same brightly burnished brown.

  Ya wanna go all gone wrong with me?
  Get some kicks reading off real strong tea?
  Ya wanna go all gone wrong with me?

Cancelled skies spread as wide-open knees,
Columns like Corinthian leather,
Suitcased mistaken identities,
Closed against destination's weather,
Forget it all,down some anti-freeze,
Delivered from out of the ether.

  Ya wanna go all gone wrong with me?
  That something-something all long to see?
  Ya wanna go all gone wrong with me?

Controls set for the heart of the Sun,
Find ourselves in that lion's den,
Well, Hell! From in there we'd better run!
At least ninety-nine times outta ten,
Getting somewhere's just so much damned fun,
We'll start over, all over again.

  Ya wanna go all gone wrong with me?
  Wanna sing this stupid song with me?
  Ya wanna go all gone wrong with me?
