lyrics

there are strange and wild beliefs more than you might need
the right ones and the wrongs ones survives the one you feed
in your pumpkin head

and when they're factored down what is revealed is shown
the orange beside the violet the sunrise or the sunny set
the thoughtless side of your pumpkin head

across the street alcoholic tee-totalers
never the twain shall meet never the twain shall meet

2.
you might not find the right one on the day that you might want it
it might not serve the purpose for which you think you bought it
in your pumpkin head

and when it's boiled down what remains is shown
the gentle touch the message sent the sunrise or the sunny set
the thoughtless side of your pumpkin head

across the street alcoholic tee-totalers
never the twain shall meet never the twain shall meet

3.
and if you're ready to believe in nonsense or the truth
they are equivalent you know fantasy or proof
in your pumpkin head

and when it dissipates what is revealed is shown
as something that is worse than less
is worth far more than you can guess
the thoughtless side of your pumpkin head

across the street alcoholic tee-totalers
never the twain shall meet never the twain shall meet
