Poison Moon - Elvis Costello

Cut loose in a nightmare
Cast off in my dreams
If home is anywhere that I can hang my hat
Then it's coming apart at the seams

My luck is hanging upside-down
I try to hold on tight
But money's rollin' outta town
And love slips right outta sight

Chorus:
And these bones, they don't look so good to me
Jokers talk, and they all disagree
One day soon I will laugh
Right in the face of the poison moon

You look in the mirror
I'm sorry but it can't be replaced
You're thrown straight out in that cruel parade
B_ttoned down and laced

It starts like facination
It ends up like a trance
You gotta use your imagination
On some on that magazine romance

-chorus-

One day soon I will laugh
Right in the face of the poison moon
