Silent Running
© 1987 Fajita Musik/J.O.B. Entertainment

there's a cloud on the horizon, don't it look like candy?
the sun's reflection on the water looks like diamonds too
if I was tall enough, if I played ball enough, I'd take a bite of the sky
and scoop the ocean into my pockets just for you

but I'm just a little speck of the dust that's underneath my bed
I need love, I need friends, I need something I can hold onto, believe in

faraway dogs, they're barking from the sunset
on an ice cream day, the flower's tend to bloom
from a sweet, still mountain hideaway, I awaken to find I'm locked in the same old boring room
I could use some Kool-Aid

slipping over my tongue, temporarily suspending all bad thought
down it goes to my toes

I already live for yesterday, the tomorrow's can wait awhile
when they finally come, I'll face the day with a smile
held up by strings and wires and sticks that you can't see
silent running, oh what will become of me?

silent running kept alive by memories
a willing coma bringing on the tide
there's things I can remember that I've never done
I see the room in which I died, what's going on?

taking me to bed now, the eyes close tight against the salty rain
my throat hurts, I need another Kool-Aid

I already live for yesterday, the tomorrow's can wait awhile
when they finally come, I'll face the day with a smile
held up by strings and wires and sticks that you can't see
silent running, oh what will become of me?
