Ghost Of Elvis (Whipping Boy)

Boxed in by them merchants (slouched) the (west) dealer of his day Sealed in a vacuum, paranoid he lay There was talk of future plans and of deja vu Out to borrow from the bank without never paying back, A little rebellion here, a little rebellion there Read it in the papers, love the company, the attitude, the videos, the ideas Love the money, the law suits, the cheap jokes, the honesty of sleaze In walks the ghost of Elvis Across my windowsill And he thrills, he thrills In walks the ghost of Elvis Across my windowsill And he thrills and he thrills in monoland Information is his trade he wants to know your every vice What you eat for breakfast what kind of drugs you like He wants to be anonymous, the city suits him fine He wants to change your ways My feet got fixed on rambling when I was only young Didn't need much money - only thought was having fun Now I sit here restless the need for lazy pride Waiting for the sun In walks the ghost of Elvis Across my windowsill And he thrills, he thrills In walks the ghost of Elvis Across my windowsill And he thrills, he thrills in Legoland Easy come and easy go The way we met and said hello Fame and fortune at the turn of a hand Easy being in monoland Easy come and easy go The way we met and said hello Fame and fortune at the turn of a hand Easy being here in monoland
