Palisades Park

Counting Crows

Somewhere Under Wonderland


Somebody screamed
All of Jim Jeffries' dreams
Explode into a black fist
He falls to the floor
He stares up at the sky
And he may wish he knew why
But you can't go back there no more

The future sounds so crazy
We all heard that song before
Tomorrow's the name
we changed from yesterday to blame
When the train just don't stop here any more
I got starry-eyed
On the coaster ride
Andy said, "Man, I need a break from the world outside"

These days my life just careens
Through a pinball machine
I could do so much better
But I can't get off the tilt
And there's a photograph on the TV, black and white
Andy says something to you
Jack Johnson straddling Reno, Nevada like
Sheesh, I forget myself sometimes, too

But out past the doorways
Where we are sleeping
Well, the white queen's creeping
The tom cat's peeping

Now I'm not breaking
The train's just shaking
I never made it here before
And there's a wild mouse spinning the girls around
Til they can't take it any more
I used to dream in the dark, in Palisades Park
Up over the cliffs and down among the spark
It's a long life
Full of long nights
But it's not what I was waiting for
Everybody's seen the horses diving down the shore
It's a miracle they don't make them any more

So
Make up ladies
Wake up baby
You walked into the bar like some Saturday star
Stud-straight on spiked heels and needles and nerves
And you're a downtown pride, fully amplified Clyde
Gin-tight and aging, but well preserved
Remember Andy outside your bedroom window
Saying, "Come on, let's drive across to the Palisades
Keep going til we hit Reno, Nevada"
I don't see Andy all that much these days
Still there are pages in back of the action stacks

Where the white queen's creeping
The tom cat's peeping

The train's not breaking
The track's just shaking
I never made it here before
And there's a sky rocket turning the world around
Til I can't take it any more
And you carry that spark from Palisades Park
Down over the cliffs and out into the dark
It's a long life
Full of long nights
But it's not what I was looking for
Everybody dreams of horses flying 'round the shore
It's a bad dream we're not having any more

Man
Have you seen Andy?
Hey man, hey man
Seen him around
Hey man, have you seen my Andy?
Hey man, have you seen him have you seen her
have you seen him have you seen her
Hey, have you seen Andy around?

Dressed up in a pirate vest
All leathers and feathers and pearls
Andy said, "Look at me, man! I'm cooking
These hands could finger up this whole world"
He said, "Come outside
Climb out your bedroom window
Shimmy down the fire escape
And say goodbye"
"Come outside... "
Andy says, "I'm dressed up just like Edie
Changing all the time
My leopard spots to polka dots"
"... And say goodbye"
"Come outside... "
Well maybe we can move to California
Just meet me at the subway
"... and say goodbye"
"Come outside... "
The cops all think we're crazy
If you stay, you'll just get married
To a girl who'll never know you
And then say goodbye

Hey man, have you seen Andy?
I lost her in the sun
I was high as a kite
But on lovely in white
Man, you can lose anyone
Hey hey man, have you seen Andy?
I don't know where she's gone
Real love outlives teenage lust
We could get wet and it keeps us warm
Love is like angel dust
Lovely sometimes changes us
Sometimes not

Have you been aching with trust or just
Have you been waking yourself with lust?
Have you been making us up or just
Taking us home?

It's a long wait
At a long light
Cars frozen in flight
All the traffic stops to stare
At a crosswalk in Reno, Nevada
Where nothing but air
And a pair of gray paper wings
Andy thinks that I have got nothing to wear
We got nothing new and
We got nothing to wear
We got nothing to wear
We got nothing to wear
