No Way To Stop The Flow

Sortin' through my junk mail, pickin’ up all my scraps
Siftin’ through this deep pile, I’m checkin’ out all of my traps
Unpackin’ my suitcase but it’s already time to go

A rushin’ river of detail, no way I can stop the flow
No way I can stop the flow

Don’t know when it’s mornin’ or when it’s time to sleep
Fallin’ into a tunnel boys it surely is dark and deep
Take a look at me honey, is my head spinnin’ around
Are there still bones here in my body
Are my feet still touchin’ the ground
Are my feet still touchin’ the ground

I don’t need any acid, I don’t need any bass
I got plenty here to amuse me
And it’s hidin’ here behind my face
The dew is heavy in the mornin’, also heavy in the dark
The flowers are growin’ all around me
When I make my bed in the park
When I make my bed in the park

Little Henry the hamster is Henrietta today
Startin’ out in one direction and then comin’ back the other way
Some day I might burn up, I might just leave a little stain
Spontaneous action, I’ll be gone the next time it rains
Gone the next time it rains

Sortin' through my junk mail, pickin’ up all my scraps
Siftin’ through my deep pile, I’m checkin’ out all of my traps
Unpackin’ my suitcase but it’s already time to go
A rushin’ river of detail, no way I can stop the flow
There’s no way to stop the flow
