In this lonely room
Where my father plays with science
On some hair-brained scheme
He lives in a dream
But he can't do much for me now

I've spent all my life
Eating knowledge at school
Driven hard to pass
Exams like a fool
And now they're all behind me
Success has come to remind me
Where do I go from here?

Hey, what's this, I'm disappearing
Seeing strange things, hey, what's happening?
I don't understand what it's meant to be
Is it something in my drink or is it me?

What are all these things around me
I'm coming down, I'm coming down
Surrealistic sights surround me
I'm coming down, I'm coming down
And who's that smart chick over there?
But they're old-fashioned clothes to wear
