This Neolithic Hole

from Miracle on Neon Clown Avenue by Cannonball Statman



In civilised obedience town,
plutocrats hold every body down;
brand new bands make the same old sounds.
Nothing ever happens in this town,

and sometimes I think I'm going insane;
doc says something's wrong with my brain.
Yeah, no shit, Sherlock, I'm in pain.
Do I even need to explain?!

No, nobody’s head stays on for long
in this Neolithic hole.

I've got a friend in New York town,
spends his life in the underground;
seems to know his way around,
but these are hard times in New York town,

and all his friends say he's insane,
'cause he's got a job, but it ain't payin',
so he stays under the roof of the E train
to protect his head from the freezing rain.

No, nobody sleeps inside for long
in that Neolithic hole.

Sun sets over this creepy old town;
dogs cry wild laments to the loons.
I could not find a fucking room;
there's no place I can sleep in this town,

and sometimes I think I'm going insane,
like there's something wrong with my brain.
Neutered on a moving train;
now I can’t stand still again,

and nobody hangs around for long
in this Neolithic hole.
