WONDERDRUG LYRICS

Lyrics reprinted by permission.

1. Hi
Written by Marc Johnson/Eric Johnson

Come Down
I Can't make you happy up there 
Come Down 
I Can't Make you happy up there 

(Pre-Chorus) 
And your looking at me up in outer space 
And your laughing at me with your smiley smile face 
And I'm waving to you but your waving goodbye 
And I'm waving to you why don't you come down and say hi 

(Chorus) 
Why don't you come down and say Hi 
Why don't you come down and say Hi 

So free 
Can I come and join you up there 
So free Can I come and join you up there

(Pre-Chorus) 

Why don't you come down and say Hi 
Why don't you come down at get High 
Why don't you come down and say Hi 
Why don't you come down and stay High

2. Morningstar
Written by Marc Johnson/Eric Johnson

It's you I need when I come undone
When my back is burning in the summer sun
It's where I go to when I die 
To the north side of hell into paradise

(Chorus)
Shine Morningstar
Wherever you are
Shine Morningstar
Let it shine 
Let it blow my mind

It's the way I feel in this rising heat
When the wave of bloom killed the loving seed
It's where I go to when you sleep 
When my back is tired and your knees are weak
(Chorus)

3. N.Y.C. High
Written by Marc Johnson/Eric Johnson

Tragedy by the Bee Gees
Gives me the heebee geebee's
Wanna go to CBGB's
Get drunk and hear the dB's

(Pre-Chorus)
She always sings the song
Cause it always gets her off
There building's in the sky
And John Lennon on my mind

(Chorus)
On a New York City High
On a New York City High

Heroin by Lou Reed
Makes me feel so free
Wanna go to the Factory
To hang with the velvets and Andy

(Pre-Chorus)

(Chorus)

4. Space Out
Written by Marc Johnson/Eric Johnson

Livin' hand to mouth
Out on St. John's Square
The only way of life you know
Run through the drugstore
At King Caufield's Motel

(Pre-Chorus)
Getting so high
Is feeling so low right now

(Chorus)
When you Space Out
When you Space Out

Drop to your knees
As you begin to pray
To the only God you know
There's honor among thieves
In your chemical mind

(Pre-Chorus)

(Chorus)

5. Star Trip
Written by Marc Johnson/Eric Johnson

I'd like to know the meaning of
All the things you say
On television black and white
Is the place to stay

(Chorus)
In the Starlight
Feelin' Allright
From the Moonshine
In the Starlight
Feelin' Allright
Time after Time

Call your mother for a ride
In the middle of the night
She should come and kick your head in
And someday she just might

(Chorus)

6. Acid Karma
Written by Marc Johnson/Eric Johnson

When and endless summer
Turns to endless bummer
You don't see a familiar face around
Just because your haste
And your life is a waste
Don't ever let it get you down

(Chorus)
What Comes Around Goes Around
What Comes Around Goes Around
Acid Karma
Acid Karma

You sing it out loud
And you shout it out proud
Nobody ever hears a sound
Everyone you know
And everywhere you go
Keeps on screwing you round and round

(Chorus)

7. Girl In the Picture
Written by Marc Johnson/Eric Johnson

If you see the girl in the picture
Tell her I'm alive
No one can touch her only belove her
Shift the gear in drive

(Chorus)
Getting Away While We Can
Getting Away While We Can

If you see the girl in the picture
Tell her I'm alive
Can't you see the girl in the picture
We come together every night

(Chorus)

If you see the girl in the picture
Tell her I'm allright
Can't you see the girl in the picture
We come together every night

(Chorus)

8. Purple is the Color of the Universe
Written by Marc Johnson/Eric Johnson

She put me in a spell trance
She put me in a curse
Purple is the Color of the Universe
In an Ozzie Clark get up
With a pill box purse
Purple is the Color of the Universe
She says it gets better
It only get worse
Purple is the Color of the Universe
She's peacock revolution
She's Venus in furs
Purple is the Color of the Universe

(Chorus)
Purple is the Color of the Universe
Purple is the Color of the Universe

Verse to the chorus
To the second verse singing'
Purple is the Color of the Universe
She bought my record album
She memorized the words to
Purple is the Color of the Universe

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
Fly away to where the pain don't hurt
Fly away cause Purple is the Color of the Universe

She put me in a spell trace
She put me in a curse
Purple is the Color of the Universe
She says it gets better it only gets worse
Purple is the Color of the Universe

(Chorus)

9. Supersonic Daydream
Written by Marc Johnson/Eric Johnson

So you have the wonder
I'll give it to you straight
There a storm in heaven and
I'm breaking down the gates
Your the star of the season
I know your gonna fall
You had your fifteen minutes
Just like Warhol
You fall

(Chorus)
There's a Thorn in the Atmosphere
Baby I'm Here
There's a Thorn in the Atmosphere
Baby I'm right here

Your moving to a satellite
It's better than this world
Your supersonic daydream
Perceptions of the door
Connect to the station
Taking off your face
Disease does the cleaning
of the human race
Whatta waste

(Chorus)

So you have the wonder
I'll show you what I mean
There's a storm in the heavens
Supersonic Daydream

(Chorus)

10. Piranhas
Written by Marc Johnson/Eric Johnson

Count down the days to the next holiday
Laying in the sum
No time to waste so don't hesitate
Watch me as I run

(Chorus)
Piranhas
Eat me up inside
Piranhas
Leave no place left to hide
Piranhas, Piranhas
Swimming in my mind

What can I say that I ain't no slave
Working for the man
I feel so safe at the end of the day
Catch me if you can

(Chorus)

11. She's A DJ
Written by Marc Johnson/Eric Johnson

She lives in apartment 12 on the third floor
Sounds of the seventies seep underneath the floor
As she cranks up the hi-fi it echo's down the hall
I recognize the song as mine I put my head to the wall

(Chorus)
She's a D.J.
She's a D.J.
She's a D.J. and she's playing our song
She's a D.J. and it won't be long for us now
She's a D.J. and she digs our band
She's a D.J. gonna kick out the jams

Tuesday through Sunday she does FM radio
I tune in at midnight and I never miss a show
After airwave transmission she's spinning in the clubs
Overdosed on extacy and sound of Wonderdrug

(Chorus)

12. Levitate Me
Written by Marc Johnson/Eric Johnson

Silver eyes shining bright
Paint the sky a raceless white
Realize this dreams so real
Broken wings and banana peels

(Chorus)
There's no way
You can stop me
Levitate Me Levitate Me

Kill the sun you might as well
Smoke the colors that bleed to hell
There you are up on a wire
Gravity pulling you higher

(Chorus)

13. Turning Pro
Written by Marc Johnson/Eric Johnson

You sing just like a rock star
You fuck just like a porn star
You Act just like a movie star
You don't know who you are
You make it like a pop star
You take it like a porn star
You fake it like a film star
You don't know who you are
You don't know who you are
You don't know who you are

(Chorus)
It Just Doesn't Matter
It Just Doesn't Matter
It Just Doesn't Matter
It Just Doesn't Matter to me

You shake it in a go-go
Somewhere down in Soho
They pay you for a slow blow
Weird are turning pro
You shake it in go-go
Take it down it down to Soho
Make it with a weirdo
Weird are turning pro
Weird are turning pro
Weird are turning pro

(Chorus)

14. Hi #7
Written by Marc Johnson/Eric Johnson

Won't you come down to join me up here in outer space
Far away from the world we know and the human race

(Pre-Chorus)
Your starting to go where you don't even know
And I'm not even scared lets go up in the air and

(Chorus)
Fly Away Today so High
Fly Away Today so High

Time goes on forever in the milky way
Where last year is tomorrow and tomorrow was yesterday

(Pre-Chorus)

(Chorus)

Today away Goodbye...

15. Temporary Insanity (Hidden Track)
Written by Marc Johnson/Eric Johnson

I think I may have lost you
And myself along the way
Cause you showed no emotion
As you cried all day

I could make it easier
But I’m no good with change
You could quit all you struggles
You got me to blame

(Bridge)
I can’t give you what you want
I can give what is mine
But don’t feel bad about what you have done

(Chorus)
Because we all go crazy from time to time
We all go crazy from time

Ain't no one could have told me
I was livin’ in haze
That you were feeling isolated
And couldn't make it through the day

I could make it easier
But I'm no good with change
You can quit your struggle now
You've got me to blame
