Flying Duchman - Tori Amos

Hey kid, I've got a ride for you
They say your brain is a comic book tatoo
And you'll never be anything

"What will you do with your life"
Oh, that's all you hear from noon till night

Take a trip on a rocket ship baby
Where the sea is the sky
I know the guy who runs the place
And he's out of sight

Flying Duchman, are you out there?
Flying Duchman, are you out there?
Flying Duchman, are you out there?

Straight suits, they don't understand
She tried, that one with the alligator boots
But the other side drew her in

Heart falling fast when she left
Even the milky way was dressed in black

Take a trip on a rocket ship baby
The sea is the sky
I know the guy who runs the place
And he's out of sight

Flying Duchman, are you out there?
Flying Duchman, are you out there?
Flying Duchman

Cause they can't see what you're born to be
They can't see me

They can't be what they can't believe
They can't see what you see

Keep the boys spinning in their own little world
Time up and so we won't say a word
They keep the boys spinning in their own little world
So afraid he'll be what they never were

Take a trip on a rocket ship baby
The sea is the sky
I know the guy who runs the place
And he's out of sight

Flying Duchman, are you out there?
Flying Duchman, are you out there?
Flying Duchman

Cause they can't see
Cause they can't see
Cause they can't see
Are you still out there?

They can't They can't see They can't see they can't see
feel me what I've found out you know you know
you're jumping from a high jump
Are you still They can't see and Hide your love hide your love
out there ? I just move this So many know you know
mountain but them, oh they can't see
Cause they can't see

[The sequence at the end actually has three concurrent parts in the
middle, right and left of the stereo image, which is why it scans
a bit strangely written down]
