[00:06.95] I'm flying down deserted streets
[00:10.06] Wrapped in mother's winding sheets
[00:12.47] Asbestos boots on flaming feet
[00:15.43] Dreaming of forbidden treats
[00:17.97] When uniforms on nighttime beats
[00:20.33] Ask me where I'm going and what I eat
[00:23.58] I answer them with a voice so sweet
[00:26.59] I can't come down, it's plain to see
[00:29.20] I can't come down, I've been set free
[00:32.15] Who you are and what you do don't make no difference to me
[00:44.01] Well someone trying to tell me where it's at
[00:47.09] How I do this and why I do that
[00:49.21] With secret smiles like a Chesire cat
[00:52.74] And little wings like a vampire bat
[00:54.75] I fly away to my cold water flat
[00:57.63] And eat my way to a bone of fat
[01:00.68] And I say to the man with the funny hat
[01:03.77] I can't come down, it's plain to see
[01:06.51] I can't come down, I've been set free
[01:09.59] Who you are and what you do don't make no difference to me
[01:21.77] They say I've begun to lose my grip
[01:24.74] My hold on reality is starting to slip
[01:28.01] Tell me to get off this trip
[01:30.57] They say that it's like a sinking ship
[01:33.23] Life's sweet wine's too warm to sip
[01:35.76] And if I drink I'll surely flip
[01:38.83] I just say as I take a nip
[01:41.58] I can't come down, it's plain to see
[01:44.47] I can't come down, I've been set free
[01:47.51] Who you are and what you do don't make no difference to me
[01:59.68] So, as I dream of cotton seas
[02:02.72] And granite halls and redwood trees
[02:05.04] An ugly eye that only sees
[02:08.46] Endless mirrors and infinite me's
[02:11.27] About the winter's coming freeze
[02:13.52] This afterthought I say with ease
[02:16.48] To all of you who made your pleas
[02:19.43] I can't come down, it's plain to see
[02:22.19] I can't come down, I've been set free
[02:25.20] Who you are and what you do don't make no difference to me
