1492 Lyrics

I'm a Russian Jew American,
Impersonating African Jamaican,
What I want to be is an Indian,
I'm gonna be a cowboy in the end,
I guess I bought a gun,
'Cause it impresses all the little girls I see,
And then they all wanna sleep with me.

Oh where did we disappear?
Into the silence that surrounds us,
And then drowns us in the end,
Where are these people who impersonate our friends?
Say come again, come again, come again.

Into the dark Italian underground,
With disco lights and disco sounds,
And skinny girls who drink champagne,
Then they take me on their knees again,
And pull me up and out the door,
To railway cars and tranny-whores,
And mornings spreading out across,
The feathered thighs of angels.

Oh were did we disappear,
To the silence that surrounds us,
And then drowns us in the end,
Will they try to push you out to keep you in?
I say come again, come again, come again.

In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue,
In 1493, he came home across the deep blue sea,
In 1494, he did it with the girl next door,
In 1495, he barely made it out alive,
In 1964, these sailors left me at the door,
In 1970, some people got their hands on me,
And I'm the king of everything,
And I'm the king of nothing, nothing,
And I am the king of everything,
I am the king of nothing.

Oh where did we disappear,
To the silence that surrounds us,
And then drowns us in the end,
Where are these people who impersonate our friends?
I say come again, come again, come again.

Oh where did we disappear,
To the silence that surrounds us,
And then drowns us in the end,
Where they try to get you out to get you in,
And all these people who impersonate our friends,
Say come again, come again, come again,
Come again, come again.
