Return to Oz - Scissor Sisters

Once there was a man
Who had a little too much
Time on his hands
He never stopped to think
That he was getting older

But when his night came to an end
He tried to grasp for his last friend
And pretend that he could wish himself health
On a four leaf clover

He said is this the return to Oz?
The grass is dead
The gold is brown
And the sky has claws
There's a wind up man walking round and round
What once was Emerald City
Is now a crystal town

Three o'clock in the morning
You get a phone call from the queen
With a hoard of heads
She says that they're all dead
She tried the last one on
It couldn't speak, fell off
And now she just wanders the halls
Thinking nothing,
Thinking nothing at all

She said is this the return to Oz?
The grass is dead
The gold is brown
And the sky has claws
There's a wind up man walking round and round
What once was Emerald City
Is now a crystal town

The wheelie's are cutting pavement
And the Skeksis at the rave meant to hide,
Deep inside their sunken faces and their wild rolling eyes,
But their callous words reveal
That they can no longer feel
Love or sex appeal
The patchwork girl has come to cinch the deal

To return to Oz, we fled the world with smiles and clenching jaws
Please help me friend from coming down
I've lost my place and now it can't be found

Is this the return to Oz?
The grass is dead,
The gold is brown
And the sky has claws.
There's a wind-up man walking round and round
What once was emerald city
Is now a crystal town
