If you could keep me floating just for a while

'Til I get to the end of this tunnel...mummy

If you could keep me floating just for a while

I'll get back to you

Take a Jimi Thing

Just to keep me swingin'

I'd like to show you what's inside

I shouldn't care if you don't like it

Brother chaos rules all about

Sometimes I walk there

Sometimes, God knows, I take a bus there

I should't care I shouldn't care bereaved as

I'm feeling
