Bek Lyrics

Clock

(From the Odelay Album)

[Written by Beck Hansen, Mike Simpson, John King]

Is it come and gone?
Is it long before the spirit shaves his legs?
Is it wrapped in trash
Sent back to the sanitation tank?
Is it disinfected?
Disconnected 'til it drafts some wires?
Is it sped up?
Swung around?
Brown and yellow in the fires?

What is this town?
They say I got no place to be
The money meter's taking everything I see

Is it comes in lovely bones to
Put their shirts on ice?
Is it fireflies that cross out eyes with any spice?
Is it normal? Born again? Let the vultures drink and drown.
Is it sourced from where there's birds of feathers, never frown?

What is this town?
They say I got no place to be
The money meter's taking everything I see

Is it come and gone? Is it long before the spirit shaves his legs?
Is it wrapped in trash and sent back to the sanitation tank?

What is this town?
They say I got no place to be
The money meter's taking everything I see
