Bek Lyrics

Gamma Ray

(From the Modern Guilt Album)

[Written by Beck Hansen]

If I could hold, hold out for now
With these icecaps melting down
With the transistor sound
And my Chevrolet terraplane
Going around, around, around

Come on little gamma ray
Standing in a hurricane
Your brains are bored
Like a refugee from a house that's burning
And the heat wave's calling your name

She's got a cactus crown
With a dot, dot, dot on her brow
And she speaks inside a cloud
With her countenance turning around

It hit me like a gamma ray
Standing in a hurricane
I'm pulling out thorns
Smokestack lightning out my window
I want to know what I've lost today

Come on little gamma ray
Standing in a hurricane
Your body's bored like a refugee
From a house that's burning
And the backwater's calling your name
