I've become alarmed about what I thought was hard
In the days when I was waiting for the changing of the garde
And I was learning a new lesson every day
Where's my back pay

I had fluorescent on the brain
I could ride forever on the dumb train
When I was government subsidized
Me and my sad eyes
Running for lord of the flies

Words never used to be able to express
Thoughts in such a mess
But still I said them
I never thought I was a danger to the rest
I would never guess
They'd come to Dresden

English nannies made you sit in old schools
I don't know why everybody loves rules

Who's going to pay me to say you've lost sight
I was shaking to the left, now they shake to the right
And everybody's got political overtones
Where's the DM zone
Please send some money from home

Words never used to be able to express
Thoughts in such a mess
But still I said them
I never thought I was a danger to the rest
I would never guess
They'd come to Dresden

English nannies made you sit on hard stools
All of a sudden everybody loves rules

Words never used to be able to express
Thoughts in such a mess
But still I said them
I never thought I was a danger to the rest
I would never guess
They'd come to Dresden

I love Dresden
I love Dresden
