lyrics

In the graveyard of my youth
Street of early sorrow
I have broken with the truth
Strange tales I have borrowed
And the grown ups just like brutes
Total jokes total cowards
And where would we hide
Behind the water towers
All in the graveyard of my youth

In the graveyard of my youth
I was a freak, I was a dog
And so were all my friends
We walked the whole days long
It was our mothers and our fathers
Full of lies and lies forever
We liked to sit in the bushes
Drinking wine in purple heather
All in the graveyard of my youth

Farewell my friends
I seek no more
The rules are cruel and they hang from the door
Now do I want pussy or a cocaine cure?
Or natural acts untarnished and pure

Well I may be a freak, I may be a dog
But my vision is clear, yes my vision is clear
I may be frightened or insecure
Of natural acts untarnished and pure…
