Flying Dutchman - Tori Amos

Hey, kid, I got a ride for you.
They say your brain is a comic book tattoo,
And you'll never be anything.
"What will you do with your life?"
Oh, that's all you hear from noon 'til night...

Take a trip on a rocket ship, baby, where the sea is the sky.
I know the guy who runs the place, an' he's out-a-sight.
Flying... Dutchman... are you out there?
Flying... Dutchman... are you out there?
Flying... Dutchman...

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, an' he's out-a-sight.
Flying... Dutchman... are you out there?
Flying... Dutchman... are you out there?
Flying... Dutchman...

'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...

They'll keep the boy spinning in their own little world.
Ahn...na... an...na...
Tie him up, so he won't say a word. Ahn...na... an...na...
They'll keep the boy spinning in their own little world.
Ahn...na... an...na...
So afraid he'll be what the never were. Ahn...na... na...

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

Flying... Dutchman... are you out there?
Flying... Dutchman... are you out there?
Flying... Dutchman... 'Cause they can't see...
'Cause they can't see... 'Cause they can't see...
Are you still out there? Whow... whow... whow-whow...

TORI
They can't see... Are you still out there?
Hoh... whow... whoh...

HIGH TORI
Ah... they can't see, they can't see.
Oh, you know, you know, you die-
You're gonna hide your (hide your) head, hide your head.
But, some men, you know, you know, most of them-
They can't see.


LOW TORI
They... can't... see... what... I... find... out...
(Well) they... can't... see... and... I... just...
Lose my sight.
