Freaks collecting stainedglass rubies
Till a gently on a strand
Bearing looks of frenzied blankness
Slowing down their B.B. King

Middle class suburban children
Wearing costumes that reveal
Blindly follow recent pipers
With their mystical appeal for now

So I’m leavin' for the country
To try and rest my head
'Cause if I hang around this scene too long
You know babe I’ll be dead

All the changes superficial
Apathy still a king
Liberal reactionaries
Never doing anything for now

So I’m leavin' for the country
To try and rest my head
'Cause if I hang around this scene too long
You know babe I’ll be dead
