Cerebral rape and pillage in a village of his choice.
Invisible man who can sing in a visible voice.
Feeling like a hundred bucks, exchanging good lucks face to face.
Checkin' his stash by the trash at St. Mark's place.

Verse 3
Runnin' 'round the house, Mickey Mouse and the Tarot cards.
Falling asleep with a flop pop video on.

If he died in Memphis, then that'd be cool, babe.

Ha. I always figured that this song would be in an open tuning.
Guess the Goo Goo Dolls got their open tuning idea from The Replacements too.
