Lyrics

Mmm, mum is the Word
Numb is a better word
Haven't ya heard

Luke the Drifter and me
Wrote us a song
Too lonesome to sing

Not on this
Side of the dial
Not on this short wave

Buster Keaton and I
Danced out on the window sill
Ten stores high

If one night you take to walking
Way up off the ground
Do yourself a favor
And don't look down

I keep falling back to earth
Just as I am floating high

Luke the Drifter and me
Thumbed us a ride
Down the highway of dreams

Once you're out beyond the city
This old road gets dark
You could lose your bearings
And forget where you are

I keep falling
Back to earth
Just as I am floating high
Very high high high
