    Lived In Bars

    we've lived in bars
    and danced on the tables
    hotels trains and ships that sail
    we swim with sharks
    and fly with aeroplanes in the air

    send in the trumpets
    the marching wheelchairs
    open the blankets and give them some air
    swords and arches bones and cement
    the lights and the dark of the innocent of men

    we know your house so very well
    and we will wake you once we've walked up
    all your stairs

    there's nothing like living in a bottle
    and nothing like ending it all for the world
    we're so glad you will come back
    every living lion will lay in your lap
    the kid has a homecoming the champion the horse
    who's gonna play drums guitar or organ with chorus
    as far as we've walked from both of ends of the sand
    never have we caught a glimpse of this man


    we know your house so very well
    and we will bust down your door if you're not there

    we've lived in bars
    and danced on tables
    hotels trains and ships that sail
    we swim with sharks
    and fly with aeroplanes out of here
    out of here
