TORI AMOS lyrics - Flying Dutchman

TORI AMOS
"Flying Dutchman"

Hey, kid, I've got a ride for you
They say your brain is a comic book tattoo
And you'll never be anything
What will you do with your life?
Oh that's all you hear from noon till night

Take a trip on a rocket ship, baby
Where the sea is the sky
I know the guy who runs the place
And he's out of sight

Flying Dutchman, are you out there?
Flying Dutchman, are you out there?
Flying Dutchman

Straight suits, they don't understand
She tried that one with the alligator boots
But the other side drew her in
Heart falling fast when she left
Even the milky way was dressed in black

Take a trip on a rocket ship, baby
The sea is the sky
I know the guy who runs the place
And he's out of sight

Flying Dutchman, are you out there?
Flying Dutchman, are you out there?
Flying Dutchman

'Cause they can't see what you're born to be
They can't see me
They can't be what they can't believe
They can't see what you see

They'll keep the boy spinning in their own little world
Tie him up so he won't say a word
They'll keep the boy spinning in their own little world
So afraid he'll be what they never were

Take a trip on a rocket ship, baby
Where the sea is the sky
I know the guy who runs the place
And he's out of sight

Flying Dutchman, are you out there?
Flying Dutchman, are you out there?
Flying Dutchman

'Cause they can't see
'Cause they can't see
'Cause they can't see
Are you still out there?

They can't see but I fly now
I can see and I just lose myself

They can't see, they can't see
You know, you know, you're jumping from a high jump
Don't hide your head, hide your head
So many do, you know, but them, they can't see
