Sunset ( In The Land Of Schizophrenia )

The sun rises in the east, west is where it sets
Sometimes I go through a whole day, doing what I forget
Time stands still, I falter, I walk to the beach, stare at the water
The horizon is before me, scattered over a million miles
An old couple passes, the woman looks at me - I smile
The sun rises in the east, west is where it sets
Sometimes I go through a whole day, doing what I forget
Catholic boys aren't allowed any toys,
not until heaven I remember the number of sins that are deadly, isn't it seven?
I call my shrink to tell him how I feel down deep inside
He tells me the best thing to do is probably run and hide
The moon is high, into the deep dark corners of the night I go I have a friend -
we talk a lot, I tell him everything, someone's got to know
The sun rises in the east, west is where it sets
Sometimes I go through a whole day, going where I forget
Sinster shadows glid along behind, distant laughter I think I hear, but i'm sure it's just my mind
A long time ago, I believed in Santa Claus and fairies
I had a bright red fire truck, little plastic men it carried
To imaginary emergencies, to rescue the people on the top floor
I went to bed at night, I was Robin Hood - I took from the rich and gave to the poor
The sun rises in the east, west is where it sets Who the hell I am, sometimes I forget

[ Boggles Brown is broke, except for the "People With Disabilities Allowance" he gets once a month. This month, he lives in a run-down motel - he manages to buy an old beat-up Toyota which is unreliable but reliable if you know what I mean. Sometimes he thinks his car may be bi-polar. ]
