lyrics

I traveled on the wrong trying to find a way off it
I had a big red balloon till a bigger kid popped it
Lost my key to the door did you ever come across it?
Seems I struggle with the flow like a broken faucet

I got my coat & a pocket full of small change
Got a good, good friend and a belly full of yellow flames
I got a rose and ticket for a fast train
I got a short fuse fixed and a remedy to use your pain

Well the clockwork doll she could never keep a-smiling
And the tears of a clown no they're never drip-drying
There's a fat rat gambling on the road it's looking rocky
& nobody here relaxed there’s a crowd getting jumpy

I got some boots & a penny for your wishing well
I got a flute and a glimpse of where the blue sky fell
Can flick a coin, don't mind a-heads or tails if it lands
I'm by the stream with a bucket full of bad dreams off my hands

Some people will come & some people will go
Moving round and round from town to town, where they are you never know
But there's no point me banging my head on this wall
Circling round & round on the same old ground waiting for the axe to fall

I got my coat & a pocket full of small change
Got a good, good friend and a belly full of yellow flames
Can flick a coin, don't mind a-heads or tails if it lands
I'm by the stream with a bucket full of good times on my hands
