mister whisper

lyrics:

when i am going
round the bend
i got a wild
imaginary friend
when i am driven
up the wall
my old friend
he comes to call:

MISTER WHISPER'S here again
MISTER WHISPER'S here again
he's back in his apartment
in my head
he's back in his apartment
like I said.

just when life
can't get much worse
he tells me reassuring things:
says I'm the center
of the universe
says I'm as good as
presidents and kings.

MISTER WHISPER'S here again
MISTER WHISPER'S here again
I think I can control him
but instead
MISTER WHISPER takes control --
guides my heart
and rides my soul
the minute that he steps
inside my head.

just when i am
sure he'll stay
they shoot me with
a jolt or two
they try to drive
my mister friend away
and damn it all
they nearly always do
they nearly always do ...

MISTER WHISPER don't go way
MISTER WHISPER won't you stay
it gets so lonely
wish that I were dead.

listen Whisper please don't go
listen Whisper don't you know
I'd rather madness
than this sadness
in my head?

the thought that he'll leave
just bitterly burns
and my despondence grows
as soon as lonely
lonely sanity returns
and old Mister
old MISTER WHISPER
goes.

[a multitrack soundscape morphing into "word salad"]:

with my daddy / in the afternoons
with my daddy / in the afternoons
i lost
my blue buttons
he sent me
blue buttons
on my birthday
but my
blue buttons
came loose
loose
loose
lucy brown
lucy in the sky
luce
lucent
lucid
lucidity
lucifer
light
hang loose
stay loose
i
how did i
get this way
i was
what was i
going to say
i was on
how did i
get in here
i was on my
wasn't i
here last year
i was on my way
why have they
locked me in
i was on my way to
who is my
next of kin
Christ won't i
ever win
i paid my
airplane fare
i was on my way to where
