Comin' Down for Yeour Birthday
OKcomputer

First love comes is mickey mouse
 1
Harriet the spy was I,
 2
Everybody else spoke bone-white plain
 3
everybody now is just the same.
 4
My jokes won't take laughs
 5
and my eyes won't see no mustache.
 6
My eyes never seen no TV commercial,
 7
my eyes have only seen the color schemes
 8
and my eyes have only seen my dreams.
 9
nobody knows the rainbow
 10
But Dylan, both the poets and I.
 11
 
 
The light reflects seven ways
 12
the sound is coming from twelve different stages
 13
large meetings of people won't make them better
 14
the kettle phones and knives won't move them
 15
and the honey soaked steaks won't stew them
 16
one hundred beer keg bombers won't hold them
 17
and stone-sharp rocks won't crop them
 18
There are bullies in the wilderness
 19
there are statues in the park
 20
there are corpses in my living room
 21
there's a shotgun in the mall.
 22
Nobody will duck and run, nobody can say they've won
 23
but Dylan, the poets and I.
 24
 
 
Oh, the rescue trucks won't take them
 25
and the grizzly trucks won't chase them down
 26
and the bow and arrows won't tear them up
 27
and the concubines won't bust em up
 28
and everybody hears it but nobody has a werd to say
 29
but Dylan, both the poets and I.
 30
 
 
It is a long dusty road for takin'
 31
with no hotel to go tell for 43 miles
 32
and song birds and poetry all in the gutter
 33
there is no one to love for the next million miles
 34
there is no one to love you for who you ain't written to be lickin'
 35
there is no one to tell that your eyes started ringin
 36
there is no one to tell of your debt to the flowers,
 37
there is no sameness to say to your same soul forever.
 38
Life is a thing to end for everybody
 39
but Dylan, both the poets and I.
