Tim Exile - Bad Dust lyrics

You're not what you said you are.
Last time you were wide and far.
Now you're a slippery fish swimming in the green,
And I'm a dirty toad wanting to get clean.
I've gone the wrong way down a one way street,
Walking on my head instead of my feet.
I read the sign posted at the top of the road,
But this is not the pleasant street that it showed.

Bad dust swept me off my feet.
Had a ticket to the ceiling, and now I'm on the floor.
Asked for candy from the cherubs, got snuff from the Devil.
And I'm lying in the gutter watching stars come crashing down upon my head.

You put me on the wrong shelf
Upside down beside myself.
I'm sitting with the headless dolls,
Bricks of LEGO, missile down the hole.
We're in the ugly duckling crew.
Listen fast for king different swan song.
We'll spread our wings and dive away
Into the night to sleep through the day...

Bad dust swept me off my feet.
Had a ticket to the ceiling, and now I'm on the floor.
Asked for candy from the cherubs, got snuff from the Devil.
And I'm dying in the gutter watching stars come crashing down upon my head.

I'm going South on a North bound train.
You're underwater in an aero-plane.
I'm doing 40 in a contra-flow,
Driving in the fast lane deathly slow.
I'm crawling with the lions,
I'm roaring with the snails,
I'm diving with the birds,
I'm flying with the whales.
I wanted fast, not slow,
I wanted high, not low,
I wanted light, not dark,
Just a match with a spark.

Bad dust swept me off my feet.
Had a ticket to the ceiling, and now I'm on the floor.
Asked for candy from the cherubs, got snuff from the Devil.
And I'm lying in the gutter watching stars come crashing down upon my head.
