Song Meaning
Verse 1
Have you ever wanted to disappear
And join a monastery
Go out and preach on Manic Street?
Who will I be when I wake up next to a stranger
On a passenger plane?
(Passenger plane)
Verse 2
Oh,
Verse 3
Permanent jet lag
Please take me back (please take be back)
Please take be back
(Oh) I'm a stray dog sick
Please let me in (please let me in)
The mad keys tripping
Singing vows before we exchange smoke rings
Verse 4
Give me a pen
Call me Mr. Benzedrine
But don't let the doctor in
I wanna blow off steam and
Call me Mr. Benzedrine (Mr. Benzedrine)
But don't let the doctor, don't let the doctor in
Verse 5
It feels like fourteen karats but no clarity
When I look at the man who would be king
The man who would be king goes to the
Desert to sing war his dad rehearsed
Came back with flags on coffins and said
We won, oh, we won
Verse 6
Permanent jet lag
Please take me back (please take be back)
Please take be back
(Oh) I'm a stray dog sick
Please let me in (please let me in)

My, my, my Benzedrine
My Benzedrine now

Verse 9
Only one more thing and that is the rest of the proof

Verse 10
Call me Mr. Benzedrine
But don't let the doctor in
I wanna blow off steam and
Call me Mr. Benzedrine (Mr. Benzedrine)
But don't let the doctor, don't let the doctor in
Verse 11
Have you ever wanted to disappear?
Verse 12
It's not me, it's you
Actually, it's the taxidermy of you and me
Untie the balloons from around my neck and ground me
I'm just a racehorse on the track
Send me back to the glue factory
Always thought I'd float away
And never come back
But I've got enough miles on my card
To fly the boys home on my own
But you know me: I like being all alone
And keeping you all alone
And the charts are boring
And the kids are snoring
And the eagles in a sling
You say you're not listening
And I said I'm wishing
And I said, I said
