Bek Lyrics

O Maria

(From the Mutations Album)

[Written by Beck Hansen]

There is no one, nothing to see
The night is useless and so are we
Because everybody knows
The fabric of folly is falling apart at the seams

And I've been looking for a good time
But the pleasures are seldom and few

There's no whiskey there's no wine
Just the concrete and a worried mind
Cos everybody knows death creeps in slow
Till you feel safe in his arms
And I've been looking for a new friend
I don't care if he's decrepit and grey

O Maria, haven't you known
Days so careless
All on your own
Everybody knows the circus is closed

And the animals have gone wild
And I've been looking for my shadow
But this place is so bright and so clean

There is no one, nothing to see
The night is useless and so are we
Because everybody knows
The fabric of folly is falling apart at the seams

And I've been looking for a good time
But the pleasures are seldom and few
