Bek Lyrics

Atmospheric Conditions

(From the One Foot In The Grave Album)

[Written by Beck Hansen]

There's nobody, there's no mountain, there's no tunnel
You can't get from there to here
You can't get from here to there

There's nobody, there's no mountain, there's no tunnel
You can't get from there to here
You can't get from here to there

There hasn't been a change in the atmosphere
(Nothing twisting round, burning down, coming round)
There hasn't been a change for over a year
(Sliding through, riding through, hiding you)
There hasn't been a change in the atmosphere
(Shut it up, roll it up, find anew)

Pull the tab, (A gypsy haircut)
Give it a stab (A bearskin rug)
There's no happiness fear (The tambourines)
Dig a tunnel (A black piano)
Through the mountain (On the mountain)
How many atmospheres are out there (Your atmosphere's up there)
(There's a broken bottle) There's a tunnel from the mountain
(In the tunnel) Here
(Cut your hand on the atmosphere
Split in two, band-aids on your hand, split
The atmosphere is split in two, staring at you)
