Lyrics of

Couchriders in the sky

	
This is no Grace Line tour
This is no Disney ride
No hipster buccaneers
Wait on the yonder side
This river's fast and wide
This water cold and deep
And there's no place for you 
Where stones and fishes sleep

Spliff and chalice 
Chalice and spliff
Oxi's and dexi's
Like dragon's teeth
I know what happens
And you do too
You seen the rushes
On the pay per view and

Yes
We are leaving
In the morning
For the afternoon and more
Say good evening 
Say goodbye
Couchriders
Couchriders in the sky

And who goes on this boat
I guess we don't know yet
We see through low-res eyes
In dusky silhouette 
This couch is long and low
The bolsters warm and deep
And there is room for you
Where kings and counsellors sleep

Switchblades and matches
And black cat bones
Spacecones in batches
And casing stones
The headlandÔ??s  rising
And don't you know
As up above so is it
Down below and

Yes
We are leaving
In the morning
For the afternoon and more
Say good evening 
Say goodbye
Couchriders 
Couchriders in the sky
