neon forest lyrics – iggy pop

i’m sliding like a lizard on my belly and back
it’s a miracle i haven’t fallen through any cracks
the life on display is trouble for sure
the drugs that i took have made me impure

the neon forest is lighting up
the neon forest is lighting up
my brain

i’ve learned some nasty lessons so i’m shutting
my mouth
a fury in my gut is spinning me round
and round
to be a total phony is the winning design
when the fabric of life is a h*rny goldmine

the neon forest is my home
and like a cartoon cat i roam
where only kids are still alive
and anyway they’re gonna fry
my brain

you can get a weird prize for being adored
you can join the “in crowd” for being a wh*r*
although you are lonely you wish for a fence
america takes drugs in psychic defense
you can say what you want but n*body’s there
have you got any money?
are you anybody?
