Bad Idea

who's that,

high heels walking on the wire?

lay back

she's no stranger to the shark.

no names -

let's all keep it nice and easy

brain games,

coattails flappin' in the wind.


And we all turn round

From the bear to the monkey,

And we all fall down,

It's the natural law,

Will you wait for me

On that day so fateful

When we all turn out,

From the feather to the claw?


Black book

Take up study by the candle

Don't look

Don't trust anything you see.

Don't tell

Just give them something they can handle

I'll just

Lock this down inside of me


And we all turn round

From the bear to the monkey

And we all fall down,

It's the natural law,

Will you wait for me

On that day so fateful

When we all turn out,

From the feather to the claw?



You find a grand design -

Where you think you broke the pattern

But the pattern never dies.

You've got that restless mind,

But there's a pattern in the pattern

And you know this is a bad idea


I know, you let it go,

But there's a fire in the belly

And the fire's got to grow-ow-ow

I know you love it so,

But there's a truth behind the truth

And this was all just a bad idea.


You find a grand design -

Where you think you broke the pattern

But the pattern never dies.

You've got that restless mind,

There's a pattern in the pattern

And you know this is a bad idea
