lyrics

From an Abstract Mind

From an abstract mind.
From an abstract -from an abstract
From an abstract mind.
From an abstract mind.

This ain't karaoke.This ain't rock and roll.
Not a barrel of monkeys, not a riddle on a scroll.

We're only breaking broken rules.
Cyclopean visionaries challenge us to duels.
We're playing mind games with warped brains.
Learning locomotives with off the rails trains.

Sinking in a brainwave. Off the beaten tangent
Shark infested forests. There is no precedent

With a guitar and a mars bar.
Or an atom and a black hole star.
With eternal time to wait in the queue.
But only if we have an infinite IQ.

Eleventeen. The number on my screen.
What lurks unseen? The missing link gene.

Neither cold nor too hot to trot.
Like a lukewarm storm or goodness knows what
We've found our way but lost the plot
Like the cyclic return of the year dot.

From an abstract mind.
With a million others following behind.

They don't ride horses.
They just ride Yamahas.
They don't play Steinways.
They just play Yamahas.

From an abstract mind, mentally unwind.
From an abstract mind, thoughts that cannot bind.
From an abstract mind, from an abstract mind.
