Sifting Through the Madness

from Digging Up Ed Sullivan by The Atomic Atoms



All the pheromone equipped are heading downtown
where the city fathers founded the proving grounds
flash some skin and show off your steam
make court for the Wisemen and the Queens
they're all waiting to see if you're more than what you seem
like maybe you could
turn the stars around

Well them new crops is in but there's nothing nothing really there to eat
they're all peddlers and pimps, seems to me they're a little too light on their feet

something strikes me through the strange
they got the quick, but they ain't got deranged
and if nothing's at risk then there's nothing there that's ever gonna change
but maybe you could
turn the stars around

and they all sing like -

oh mama, we're not gonna wait for you no more
oh baby, we got things to do you know that's for...
sure sounds funny, but it tastes just like honey to me

so give me what you got 'cause it's what I need

well the judge got that grease and the jury was hung so no one could tell
you be king, you be crook - they're gonna cozy to the way you sell
and here I know I must be out of my brain
flipped on the till cause we ain't in the right frame
will I see you tonight going south on that downtown train?
there's still time for you to
turn the stars around
if you wanted you could
tear the whole damn town down to the ground
but I'd like to see you
turn the stars around

all the pretty boys they just say -
oh mama, we're not gonna work for you no more
oh baby, we got places we gots to be you know that's for...
sure sounds funny but it all smells like money to me
so give me all you got 'cause it's what I need
